Medium Voltage (MV) power cables have a range of 2kV to 35kV and are used in the utilities industry for maintenance and repair of mobile substations, in industrial plant environments for power distribution, and in the mining industry for supplying power to drills, haulers, and more. Uses of medium voltage power cables are rising in popularity, so here’s what you need to know about them.
In the world of medium voltage, there are different cables and designations of which you should be aware. They may appear to be similar, but there are differences and it’s important to know where to use specific cables in your applications. Using the wrong cable in an application can be disastrous.
Medium voltage applications require cables designed specifically to handle voltages ranging from 5kV -35kV, sometime called Type-MV, Type-SH and Type MV-Concentric Neutrals. We examine the similarities and differences and ask the question; what are the differences between the three types of medium voltage cables?
To modernize your plant, revamping and debottlenecking (increasing capacity) restores competitiveness and allows your facility to fulfill demanding market requirements regardless of industry. Pinpointing and removing existing bottlenecks will help to achieve optimal results between your investment costs and plant output, thus increasing the quality, quantity and safety of your products.
Electrical grids require constant updates in order to support the policy goals of the energy industry. Those necessary updates to modernize the power grid include conventional updates as well as advanced digital information and telecommunication technologies.
