2003 (English)In: IEEE transactions on dielectrics and electrical insulation, ISSN 1070-9878, E-ISSN 1558-4135, Vol. 52, no 2, 415-418 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A method has been developed for characterizingthe wave propagation properties of medium voltage (MV) powercables. It delivers the complex propagation constant of lossy cabletransmission lines as a function of frequency. The technique isbased on time domain measurements and frequency domain analysisof short pulse propagation. Particular attention is paid to thecalibration, as samples with arbitrary characteristic impedancescan cause multiple reflections in the test setup. The influence ofnumerical artefacts is also investigated. The developed techniqueis demonstrated on MV crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) cables.The results are verified by comparison with frequency domainmeasurements of the cable S-parameters.
