For the purposes of this document. the following ienns and definitions apply. The IEEE Standards Dktionarv OnlUw should bc consulted for terms not dcfmcd in this cbusc.
cable shielding: A magnetic or nonmagnetic. conductive material applied over the insulated conductor or conductors to confine the electric field of the cable to the insulated conductor or conductors or to protect the insulated conductors from external electromagnetic or electrostatic interkrencc.
cocoon (cable system enclosure): A cable wrap or enclosure used to protect cables from fire hazards and used to permit cable separation distances less than that normally required and which is typically made of a firc resistant material.
conductor (strand) shield: The conductor shield consists of a layer of semi-conductive polymer or a material with a high dielectric constant that is extruded over the conductor. The conductor shield reduces the dielectric stress at the inside surface of the insulation and prevents partial discharges by filling in the voids and irregularities of the conductor surface and by providing a smooth. equi-potential surface at the inside surface of the insulation.
design life (of a cable): The time encompassing the service lif of a cable and the anticipated margin beyond during which a cable is expected to operate and perform its intended function.
design life (of a power generating station): [he time during which satisfactory station performance can be expected for a specific set of design operating conditions.
drop-out fitting: An attachment to a cable tray that maintains the proper cable minimum bend radius at the point that the cable exits from a tray. These linings are available in configurations that can be attached to the bottom, side, or end of a tray.
insulation shield: The insulation shield is a layer of semi-conductive polymer or a material with a high dielectric constant that is applied to the outer surface of the insulation in order to establish an equipotential surface on the outside of the insulation. This ensures that there are no areas of concentrated electric field due to sources outside of the cable, and minimizes the dielectric stress within the cable insulation.
minimum pulling bend radius: The minimum allowable value of the radius of’ an arc that an insulated conductor, insulated wire, or insulated cable can be bent under tension while the cable is being installed.IEEE 422 pdf download.
