Abstract

Accelerated aging of 15 kV Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) and Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) power cables was carried out in the experiments set for the study of this thesis. The degradation of cable insulation under different aging conditions was studied and compared. The study helped to understand the effects of different factors on the aging of XLPE and EPR cable insulation. In the study, degradation of XLPE cable insulation caused by switching impulses was investigated. The deterioration of EPR cable insulation initiated by elevated ac voltage and switching impulses were also studied. Measurements of partial discharge parameters, capacitance, and dissipation factor were analyzed to evaluate the condition of cable insulation during accelerated aging process. Measurement of ac breakdown voltage provided evidence of the cables’ remaining dielectric strength after accelerated aging.
