Medium Voltage Power Cable:A Great Choice For Industry Applications

May 22,2022

Medium voltage power cable, which is in accordance with the IEC60076  and BS System Rules, the transmission and distribution of electricity from a medium voltage power supply system. It is widely used in the distribution and transmission circuits of thermal power plants, large-scale urban heat supply systems, and another load centerz of medium voltage power supply systems.

What is medium voltage power cable?

Medium Voltage Power Cable

Medium Voltage power cables, or MV cables, is a category defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as having a voltage rating of above 5kV up to 100kV.

The term “medium voltage” refers to the type of insulation used, which is an important safety feature. This insulation must be able to withstand the high voltages and currents associated with this type of electrical cable. These are typically used in large power plants and substations.

MV cables are used in the transmission and distribution of electricity between substations and poles. They also connect different sections of power grids together, so they must be able to handle high voltages and currents as well as extreme weather conditions such as rain, snow, or ice storms.

How do I choose a medium voltage power cable?

The choice of medium voltage power cable depends on the current and insulation thickness. As the current increases, the resistance of the conductor increases, which will lead to overheating of the cable. Therefore, it is necessary to choose a suitable conductor according to its current.

The conductors of medium voltage power cables are copper and aluminum, and we recommend choosing copper for long-term consideration. Copper has a higher melting point than aluminum. Therefore, it is more suitable for high-temperature environments such as in power stations or places with large heat sources (such as industrial workshops). However, if you want to avoid high temperatures as much as possible, then choose aluminum.

Insulation thickness affects the mechanical strength and thermal stability of cables. As insulation thickness increases, mechanical strength and thermal stability increase accordingly; however, there is no need to choose thick insulation because it can cause problems such as higher installation costs and longer installation times.

How does medium power voltage cable work?

Medium voltage cables are used within a power grid to supply a region with electricity. Although they are integral parts of a power grid, medium-voltage cables are not used for national electricity exchange since they maintain voltage levels between the high-voltage network and the house installation.

Medium voltage cables are made up of three copper wires that are surrounded by an insulating material called polyethylene (PE). The wires are specifically designed to be able to carry large amounts of electrical current over long distances. They can also be used to transmit signals from remote devices back to a central location, like an electrical substation or control room.

The outermost layer of polyethylene acts as an insulator for each wire inside the cable. This means that each wire has its own separate path through which it can carry electrical current without interference from other wires in the cable or from outside sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI). The polyethylene insulation also prevents corrosion and oxidation in order to maintain optimal performance over time.

Medium voltage cables may also contain additional layers of insulation as well as other materials such as aluminum or steel around each conductor in order to increase their mechanical strength so they can endure long periods without maintenance or replacement.
