Basic conditions, causes, and types
Cable routes are influenced by a variety of ambient parameters. A cable route can consist of multiple diverse cable parts of diverse construction types. Depending on the voltage level,
the required load capacity, and available accessory and installation technology, cables with plastic insulation or mass-impregnated paper insulation are used.
Cable damage can be due to various causes. The most common sources of faults include end of service life and external influences as well as improper assembly. When these types of cable faults occur, the defective spot needs to be detected as quickly as possible and the fault rectified in order to minimise the duration of the failure.
It is helpful if the cable fault location equipment can be used for all voltage levels right across the network. In practice, cable faults must be located on all voltage levels – from low voltage through medium voltage to high voltage.
