Application of polymer ageing models to power cables

Cooper, E. S., Fothergill, J. & Dissado, L. A. (2002). Application of polymer ageing models to power cables. Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena (CEIDP), Annual Report, pp. 392-395.


Ageing models have been developed to predict the lifetime of polymeric insulation subject to electro-thermal stresses. We present here a method for applying the models to situations in which the field is not constant over the whole specimen, as for cable geometry. The method has been applied to characteristic lifetime data from AC ageing experiments on cables. The results are presented, and the effect of insulation volume upon the model parameters is discussed.
