Process steps & methods: Fault analysis
Fault analysis is used to ascertain the fault characteristics and determine the subsequent procedure and selection of methods for fault location.
Measurement methods for fault analysis in cable fault location:
Insulation resistance measurement
to determine the faulty phase and the type of fault.
Cable sheath testing
to detect damage to the outer cable insulation (cable sheath faults).
to test the dielectric strength of the cable insulation.
