How Do Cable Systems Fail? Debunking Historical Myths & Why it Matters

Co-sponsored by: Ken Oexle The PES / IAS Chapters and the Life Member Affinity Group will sponsor a technical seminar on:  Understanding how cable systems fail is one of the key elements to ensure reliability. Insight into empirical evidence and lessons learned after profiling over 110 million feet of installed 5kV to 500kV class cable systems will debunk some common theories and myths associated with solid dielectric cable failure. This insight has triggered a revolutionary life-cycle approach to cable system reliability that…
