High Voltage Cable Testing, Inspection, Fault Location and Repair

Complementing our cable jointing services, Advanced Power Services undertakes high voltage cable testing and inspection to determine that cables are fit for purpose. These tests can be undertaken pre-delivery or onsite and cover:

  • Very Low Frequency (VLF) Testing
  • Insulation Resistance (IR) Testing
  • Time Domain Reflective (TDR) Testing
  • Pressure Testing up to 80kv
  • Cross Talk Testing
  • Attenuation Testing
  • Mutual Capacitance Testing
  • Sheath Testing
  • Loaded Cores Impedance Testing

Cables are subject to damage caused at installation, or subsequent engineering works, or through environmental factors such as weather and wildlife. If a fault is suspected, Advanced Power Services can carry out a series of tests to identify and locate the fault, then carry out the necessary repairs as required.

Our personnel are fully trained in high voltage testing to current safety regulations and receive manufacturer product training on a vast range of HV cables and their components including Raychem, Tyco, Pfisterer and 3M systems, amongst others.
