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 two 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.
