Which Standard Followed XLPE Power Cable Manufacturer?

XLPE Cable Standard

XLPE Cable System Standards That Manufacturers Followed

Cable manufacturers follow some rulles during manufacturing XLPE cable systems that are designed to meet requirements set in national and international standards. Some of these are listed below.

IEC Standard for Cable Manufacturing

XLPE cable systems specified according to IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) are among  many other standards accepted. IEC standards are conside-red to express an international consensus of opinion.

Some frequently used standards are:
IEC 60183- Guide to the selection of high-voltage cables.
IEC 60228- Conductors of insulated cables.
IEC 60229- Tests on cable oversheaths which have a special protective function and are applied by extrusion.
IEC 60287- Electric cables – Calculation of the current rating.
IEC 60332- Tests on electric cables under fire conditions.
IEC 60811- Common test methods for insulating and sheathing materials of electric cables.
IEC 60840- Power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltage above 30 kV (Um=36 kV) up to 150 kV (Um=170 kV). Test methods and requirements.
IEC 60853- Calculation of the cyclic and emergency current rating of cables.
IEC 61443- Short-circuit temperature limits of electric cables with rated voltages above  30 kV (Um=36 kV)
IEC 62067- Power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltage above  150 kV (Um=170 kV) up to 500 kV (Um=550 kV) - Test methods and requirements

CENELEC Standard for Cable Manufacturing

In Europe, cable standards are issued by CENELEC. (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation.) Special features in design may occur depending on national conditions.

HD 620
Distribution cables with extruded insulation for rated volta-ges from 3.6/6 (7.2) kV up to and including 20.8/36 (42) kV.

HD 632 
Power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltage above  36 kV (Um=42 kV) up to 150 kV (Um=170 kV). Part 1- General test requirements.

Part 1 is based on IEC 60840 and follows that standard closely. HD 632 is completed with a number of parts and subsections for different cables intended to be  used under special conditions which can vary nationally in Europe.

ICEA / ANSI / AEIC Standard for Cable Manufacturing

For North America cables are often specified according to
- AEIC (Association of Edison Illuminating Companies)
- ICEA (Insulated Cable Engineers Association)
- ANSI (American National Standards Institute) or

The most frequently standards referred to are:

AEIC CS7-93 
Specifications for crosslinked polyethylene insulated shielded power cables rated  69 through 138 kV.

ANSI / ICEA S-108-720-2004 Standard for extruded insulation power cables rated above 46 through  345 kV.

For North America cables are often specified according to ICEA (Insulated Cable Engineers Association, Inc.)

Standard for utility shielded power cables rated 5-46 kV.

Standard for extruded insulated power cables rated above
46 through 345 kV.

ISO Standards for Cable Manufacturing

Generally cable Manufacturing systems comply with the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and also some are certified by Bureau Veritas, Quality International.
