Importance of Velocity of Propagation in TDR Method for UG cable fault location

In the previous blog, we concluded our three-part series on underground cable fault location. To review, we discussed the types of cable faults, methodology for locating cable faults, fault finding through Pre-location techniques and cable route tracing, pinpointing, cable identification and repair and re-test. In Part-2 of our 3 part series, we introduced the methodology …

Step-1 in underground cable fault finding: Pre-location Techniques

In the previous blog post, we discussed how electrical utilities are using underground cables to gain a higher degree of reliability. However, underground cable faults can lead to a long downtime, which can further lead to a major revenue loss for electricity utilities. We also discussed the various causes of cable faults and the different …

Introduction to Underground Cable Fault Location

Energy is a critical facet for human development. Studies evaluating the linkage of electricity and GDP growth estimate that 1% increase in per capital energy consumption results in an increase of per-capita GDP by 0.23%. Given this centrality, development of electricity infrastructure has been a key focus area for governments and policy makers. Power transmission …
