Discussion / Working Groups:
A01D – Characteristics of Insulating Materials (Inactive)
Vice Chair: Vacant
This Working Group is focused on insulating materials employed in cable systems. The objective is to provide a forum for the exchange of information on materials employed or present in cables or accessories.
A02D – Characteristics of Semi-conductive Shields (Inactive)
Chair: Harry Orton, OCEI, firstname.lastname@example.org
Vice Chair: Cindy Flenniken, Lyondell Chemicals, email@example.com
To bring together input from industry, university and cable users on the effects of semiconductive contamination on the performance of underground cable insulation systems. Recommendations will be made by this task group to either modify existing industrial standards or to produce new standards to improve the quality of semiconductive shields where it has been determined necessary.
A03D – Performance of Extruded Dielectrics (Inactive)
Chair: John Densley, ArboLec Solutions, firstname.lastname@example.org
Vice Chair: Vacant
To provide a forum for discussion and for the exchange of information on the performance of dielectrics used in extruded power cable systems.
A04D – Definition of Tree Retardant Crosslinked Polyethylene (Inactive)
Chair: Serge Pelissou, Hydro Quebec
Vice Chair: Richie Harp, TXU
The A4D Discussion Group is examining issues related to the performance of cables insulated with what is generally called tree retardant crosslinked polyethylene (TRXLPE). The term TRXLPE is often used in the electric utility industry but currently there is no uniformly accepted definition. This group is working to consolidate and document the activities that have been conducted since 1997 to define TRXLPE based on performance data.
