Cables for Power Systems: Part Two

Expert design and specification of HV cable systems is essential to reduce costs, maximise performance and deliver the best return on investment throughout the asset lifecycle. This course is designed to give you that expertise, using example circuits to illustrate best practice in cable system engineering across a range of issues.

Over three days, the course will take you through every step of the cable engineering process, from initial planning through to the preparation of detailed technical and commercial specifications for the tender, manufacture, installation, maintenance and operation of your cable system. The course also covers the management of existing cable assets in terms of condition assessment, life estimation, repair and diversions.

  • Improve your knowledge and understanding of HV power cables
  • Gain expertise in managing special project installations
  • Update your knowledge of the latest developments in cable technology
  • Reduce the risk of costly errors in cable system design and installation
  • Deliver best value over the lifetime of your company’s cable assets
  • Enhance specialist HV cable skills that are in short supply

EA Technology has extensive expertise in cable engineering, condition assessment technologies, asset management and is a leading centre of forensic investigation of cable faults at all voltages. Our training is delivered in the Power Skills Centre by leading specialists in MV and HV cable technology.
