1. Scope
This specification covers the construction, dimension, packing and test requirements of 132kV single core
copper conductor, cross-linked polyethylene(XLPE) insulated, corrugated & seamless aluminum sheathed
and MDPE outer sheathed.
2. Reference Standards
IEC 60228 : Conductors of insulated cables
IEC 60840 : Power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltages above
30 kV (Um = 36 kV) up to 150 kV (Um = 170 kV) Test methods and requirements
3. Construction and Material
Construction of the cable shall meet the requirements specified in the attached table and as follows.
3.1 Conductor
The conductor shall consist of the circular compacted construction stranded from the plain annealed copper
wire in accordance with IEC 60228(class 2).
The conductor shall be water sealed by additional water swellable tape(s) between the conductor strands.

3.2 Conductor screen


Over the conductor, semi-conducting thermosetting compound shall be extruded as a conductor screen.
Semi-conducting swellable tape(s) shall be applied between the conductor and the conductor screen.
3.3 Insulation
The insulation shall be an extruded cross-linked polyethylene(XLPE) over the conductor screen.
The minimum thickness at any point shall not be less than 90% of nominal value specified in the attached
table.

3.4 Insulation screen


Over the insulation, semi-conducting thermosetting compound shall be extruded as insulation screen and
shall be firmly bonded to the insulation.
The conductor screen, insulation and insulation screen shall be extruded simultaneously by dry curing
process.

3.5 Longitudinal water barrier


The longitudinal water barrier shall consist of semi-conducting water swellable tape(s) and semi-conducting
swellable copper woven fabric tape(s) over the extruded insulation screen.

3.6 Metallic sheath


The metallic sheath shall consist of corrugated & seamless aluminum.
The minimum thickness at any point of metallic sheath shall not be less than 85%-0.1mm of the nominal
thickness specified in the attached table.

3.7 Anti-corrosion layer


A thin layer of bitumen shall be applied over the metallic sheath as an anti-corrosion layer.

3.8 Outer sheath


The outer sheath shall be extruded black MDPE with anti-termite repellent.
The minimum thickness at any point shall be not less than 85%-0.1mm of nominal value in the attached
table.
The graphite coating shall be applied on the outer sheath to serve as an electrode for voltage test on the
outer sheath.
4. Cable Marking
The following description shall be embossed on the oversheath along two lines throughout the entire length of the cable.

1) ELECTRIC CABLES
2) Voltage grade(132000 Volts)
3) Cross section in sq. mm
4) Conductor type
5) Purchasers name(PGCB)
6) The name of the manufacture
7) The year of fabrication
Example) ELECTRIC CABLES 132000 Volts 800sqmm cu. PGCB LS Cable & System 2012

5. Sealing and drumming


Immediately after the works tests, both ends of the cable length shall be sealed by means of metal cap
and pulling eye fitted over the end and plumbed to the metallic sheath.
The completed cable shall be wound on the non-returnable steel drum.
All cable drums shall be arranged to take a round spindle and lagged with closely fitting steel sheets.

6. Tests
The following tests shall be carried out at manufacturers works according to the procedure of IEC 60840.
6.1 Routine tests
1) A.C Voltage test
2) Partial discharge test
3) Electrical test on non-metallic sheath
6.2 Sample tests
1) Conductor examination and check of dimensions
2) Measurement of electrical D.C. resistance of conductor
3) Hot set test for XLPE
4) Measurement of capacitance
