Event Details

CIGRE is for power system expertise.

Join us live for a CIGRE New Zealand Webinar series. CIGRE's unique knowledge programme comes to life through its worldwide array of face to face and online events. International human interaction facilitates free exchange of knowledge within the CIGRE community.

Topic: Cable Diagnostics to support Asset Management

In this webinar André Cuppen will talk about asset management concepts and processes, various maintenance strategies and how cable condition assessment supports these strategies, based on various CIGRE brochures and publications. He will then introduce common defects associated with old age, operation and installation. Finally he discusses common and some uncommon cable condition assessment technologies and show how these are used to detect defects in cable circuits. These and other cable related topics will also be discussed at the upcoming CIGRE cable seminar in Wellington, October 2020 and CIGRE NZ.B1 Panel meetings.
