Power Cable Testing

PowerSafe performs cable inspections and testing to IEEE and NETA standards on cable systems rated up to 36kV. Due to the variety of cable types in use it’s important for testing organizations to be aware of the different standards and guides and to inform and educate end users. The type of cable system being tested, its age and intended objective of testing (new acceptance test, diagnosis of insulation defect, etc.) will determine the strategy implemented and specific test or tests selected. PowerSafe is happy to discuss your project and provide our services.

Cable testing may also include:

  • DC withstand testing
  • AC VLF testing
  • Tan Delta testing
  • Fault locating
  • Time-domain reflectometry
  • Cable locating
