Power Cables :: XLPE Cable

XLPE = Cross-Linked Polyethylene and is an abbreviated designation for cross-linked-polyethylene.  The main characteristics of XLPE cable is three-dimensional bonding, which offers a power cable with strong resistance to deformation, even under very high temperatures.  If you couple this with low dielectric loss and dielectric constants you end up with a power cable that offers reduced charging currents and earth-leakage current.  This package results in the best known cable for transmission and distribution lines in existence.

The rapid development of the Solid Dielectric Cables manufacturing had lead to the substitution of the traditional impregnated paper and oil filled cables almost entirely by Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) Cables for voltages up to 550 kV or above due to the great technical and economic advantages of XLPE cables. In comparison to traditional paper and fluid filled cable, XLPE Cables have lower weight, better thermal properties and reduced installation and maintenance costs. With the trend toward Green-Performance, XLPE Cable offer a significant advantage, since the risk of oil leakage in non-existent. The excellent electrical and mechanical properties of XLPE make it a most suitable insulating material. The cable withstands small radius bending and is far easier to manage in the field to fluid filled cable.  Furthermore, cable splicing and cable jointing and simpler and more robust. Since the early 1960's large quantities of XLPE Cables have been installed around the world by virtue of its proven reliability, simplicity and overall system economy.

Our XLPE cable products are available from 0.6/1.0kV up to 550kV and are produced using VCV and near VCV facilities, which meet and or exceed all Australian and international market requirements. Campbell White Power Solutions offers  XLPE cable from five world class manufactures. Brugg Cable of Switzerland, Leader Cable of Malaysia, and three state-of-the-art new European Chinese Joint Ventures located in China.  At present we have XLPE cable installations up to 550kV with cable runs up to 40kM running around the world. 

Various design parameters allow for a wide cross section of XLPE product to be manufactured in one of five world wide manufacturing facilities.
