There will be more discussion about “treeing” in Chapter 16. 3 Shielding Layer Requirements There are certain requirements inherent in shielding layers to reduce stress enhancement. First, protrusions, whether by material smoothness or manufacturing, must be minimized. Such protrusions defeat the very purpose of a shield by enhancing electrical stress. The insulations shield layer has a further complication in that it is desirable to have it easily removable to facilitate splicing and terminating.

That law states that the induced voltage appearing in a circuit is proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic flux that links it. 1 1) Ohms per 1000 feet Distance from the center of the cable conductor to the center of the neutral Radius of the center conductor S and r must be expressed in the same unit, such as inches. The inductance of a multi-conductor cable mainly depends on the thickness of the insulation over the conductor. 1 Cable Inductive Reactance at Higher Frequencies. Since the inductive reactance of an insulated conductor is directly proportional to frequency, the inductive reactance is substantially increased in higher frequency applications.

As such, they are the dominant metals used in the power cable industry today. The choice between copper and aluminum conductors should carefully compare the properties of the two metals, as each has advantages that outweigh the other under certain conditions. The properties most important to the cable designer are shown below. 2 to 62 percent that of copper. 6 times that of a copper conductor to have the equivalent dc resistance. This difference in area is approximately equal to two AWG sizes. 2 Weight One of the most important advantages of aluminum, other than economics, is its low density.
