What is High Voltage Cable Testing?
When it comes to the nation’s power grids, there is a huge value in completing cable testing. Changes and advances in technology are impacting high voltage requirements worldwide. Cable tests are done to predict faults in these power grids and deal with them accordingly.
Why is High Voltage Cable Testing Important?
High voltage cables are critical assets for many commercial, industrial, and utility cliental. These play an important role in the everyday operations of these companies. Without these high voltage cables operating properly, these companies would lose production time leading to lose of revenue. These cables generate large amounts of power, and if they are not properly maintained they can become extremely dangerous. Emergency repairs can be quite costly if the cable systems are not properly maintained and tested
How NCE Can Help
High voltage cable testing can prevent dangerous situations from happening. NCE has the internal resources and partners to complete the most advanced high voltage cable diagnostics for both new age and in-service cables. During our high voltage cable testing, we can also check for local faults. At NCE, we utilize the industry standards for high voltage cable testing and partner with the top cable diagnostic companies in the world to ensure these cables remain up to code. High voltage cable systems are typically tested using either AEIC, ICEA, IEC, and/or IEEE standards.
