Abstract

A Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) apparatus has been developed to measure the space charge distribution inside cable insulation. The technique relies on acoustic contact between the cylindrical cable surface and a flat aluminium plate to couple the acoustic waves to the sensor. This work addresses the practical issue of the clamping force required
to maintain good contact and how this may alter the measured space charge distribution. Space charge measurements on mini-cables (model cables)were carried out over a wide range of clamping force and additionally a finite-element simulation model has been developed to model mechanical deformation of mini-cables and provide data that cannot be easily obtained from experiments. A clamping force range for reproducible measurements at room temperature has been determined by comparing results from a group test on a mini-cable.
