Medium Voltage Cables

The trend of cross-linked polyethylene insulated cables into power cables field is quite prevalent in the world as the substitutes of paper insulated cables, which had played the leading role in electric power transmission stage. Thus, nowadays after making its impact on its use in the medium voltage cable category, the stage seems to be turning in favour of XLPE cables in the high voltage and extra high voltage range. Especially in the higher voltage area, the monopoly of paper insulated cables, such as oil filled cable, gas filled and compressed type of cables, is gradually collapsing into the co-existence with XLPE cables.
