Cable Splicing & Terminating, Medium-Voltage (CSTMV)

Cable Splicing & Terminating, Medium-Voltage

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course provides instruction on the proper installation of cable splices and terminations. New or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot 5-35 kV solid dielectric power cables will benefit from this course. Properly trained and skilled craftsmen, who install and test the cable correctly, can drastically improve the life expectancy of cables.

According to IEEE Std. 493-2007, Table 10.33, inadequate installation and testing prior to start-up of cable splices and terminations are the primary causes of failure. Yet over the last few decades, cable splicing and testing as a profession has declined. Multi-crafting and departmental mergers have made it just one task among many.
