Abstract

In this paper, experiment for determining the temperature difference between the elements of cable and in the open air is considered. The formation of a three cables laid in a plane with different spacing between adjacent cables. Tests to heat of cables for XLPE-polyethylene are used as a solid dielectric insulation. The line to XLPE-cables in group running horizontally, provided that the cables are of equal diameter and emit equal losses. It is limited to the following: the air flow around the cables may be necessary restricted by proximity to next cables. When single-core cables are installed in parallel the load current may not share equally between the parallel cables. This is because a significant proportion of the impedance of large conductors is due to self reactance and mutual reactance. Hence the spacing and relative location of each cable will have an effect on the current sharing. Calculation for each cable configuration is necessary. Possibility of using for determining the thermal properties of XLPE-cables a sheath applied over the cable surface with coefficient convection heat transfer between cable surface and the air region about it of equal zero. The work is devoted to creation of a method for calculation of the current rating of high-voltage cables in conditions function.
