* NB the above parameters are applicable for three core and single core cable, if not otherwise specific. 3.0. 3.1.

CABLE CONSTRUCTION: XLPE underground cable is to be manufactured in continuous catenary process at controlled elevated temperature and pressure in inert atmosphere with use of suitable materials for XLPE semi-conducting, insulation and XLPE screen. The inner and outer semi-conducting sheaths and main polyethylene insulation between the sheaths are to be simultaneously extruded during the Triple Extrusion Process of manufacturing and main insulation of the Cable is to be extruded unified. The XLPE Cables in this specification does not have any metal sheath and the short circuit rating of the cable will depend on the conductivity and continuity of the strands of the armour wires, which shall be ensured by guarding against corrosion.

3.2. CONDUCTOR SCREENING. A semi-conducting cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) screening shall be extruded over the conductor to act as an electrical shield which together with elimination of the so called “Strand Effect” prevents to great extent air ionization on the surface of the conductor 3.3. INSULATION The main insulation of the Cable shall be extruded unfilled, chemically cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) inert gas cured satisfying the requirement of ISS: 7098 (Part- II) 3.4. INSULATING SCREEN: 3.5.

The screen shall be made up as indicated. The metal screen eliminates tangential stress electrostatic field surrounding the conductor and uniform electrical stress in the insulation. The semi conducting polyethylene (XLPE) screen shall be extruded over the main poly ethylene- insulating wall to prevent partial discharge at the surface of the insulation. The copper tape shall be wrapped over the semi conducting tape or extrusion as mentioned earlier for 3-core / 1core cables. The metal screen so formed around the cores shall be in

VOL-II(TS)

E9- CONTROL & XLPE CABLE

Page 21 of 26

contact with one another as the cores are laid up at triangular configuration. For single core cable, Aluminium wires armoring shall constitute the metallic part of insulation screen. Conductor screening, insulation and insulation screening shall be extruded in triple extrusion processes so as to obtain continuously smooth interfaces. 3.6.

The mechanical and chemical properties of the materials for semi conducting screens are much more important than their electrical properties, but for obtaining the high overall degree of electrical properties of an E.H.V. cable, the inner and outer semi conducting, sheaths and the main polyethylene insulation between the sheaths shall be simultaneously extruded during the manufacturing, process known as “triple extrusion”. The advantages are i) The partial discharge level at the surface of the insulation is brought to a minimum. ii) There will be no displacement of the semi conducting screen and insulation during expansion and contraction due to load cycles and bending. iii)

The semi conducting screens are easily removable during joining and termination operations.

Note: Cable manufactured without having “triple extrusion” process will not be considered / accepted. The Contractor shall have to produce necessary documents in respect of process line. 4.0. ARMOUR The for 3-core / 1-core cable shall be armoured with steel strip in case of 33KV and 11 KV to insure an adequate return path for the flow of fault current and also to provide suitable mechanical protection. Steel wires/aluminum wire / steel strips of required size in requisite number as per clause shall be laid closely in the spiral formation to protect the circumference of the cable fully and to provide adequate cross section area for flow of maximum fault current within limits of specified temperature rise and duration of fault. Direction of the lay of the armour shall be opposite to that of the cable cores in case of single core cable armour should be of magnetic material. 5.0. OUTER SHEATH

VOL-II(TS)

E9- CONTROL & XLPE CABLE

Page 22 of 26

A reliable surving shall be necessary for maintaining conductivity of the armour particularly under corrosive condition in the form of jacket. Cable shall be therefore finished with extruded PVC over sheath of thickness as indicated. The quality of PVC over sheath (jacket) shall be ensured for service reliability against moisture intrusion and shall confirm to type ST-2 of IS : 5831. The colour of the outer sheath shall be follows: For 33 KV cable : GREEN For 11 KV cable : Blue The sheaths shall be protected against white ants, vermin and termites by suitable, durable and reliable measures. The suppliers shall suggest suitable materials for use, in the event of damage to the over sheath to prevent the passage of moisture along the cable 6.0. CABLE IDENTIFICATION: The following shall be embossed on the outer sheath for the identification. a) Manufacturer’s Name or Trade Mark. b) Voltage Grade. c) Nominal section and material of conductors and number of cores. d) Year of manufacture. e) Inscription of length of cables at 1.0 mtr interval. f) Marking “Power” shall be embossed throughout the length of the cable at 10 mtr spacing. h) Type of insulation i.e. XLPE 7.0.

However, high tensile steel nuts, bolts and spring washer shall be electro galvanized to Service Condition 4. The zinc coating (610 gms per sq.mt) shall be smooth, continuous and uniform. It shall be free from acid spot and shall not scale, blister or be removable by handling or packing. There shall be no impurities in the zinc or additives to the galvanic bath which could have a detrimental effect on the durability of the zinc coating. Before picking, all welding, drilling, cutting, grinding and other finishing operations must be completed and all grease, paints, varnish, oil, welding slag and other foreign matter completely removed. All protuberances which would affect the life of galvanizing shall also be removed. The weight of zinc deposited shall be in accordance with that stated in Standard IS 2629 and shall not less than 0.61kg/m² with a minimum thickness of 86 microns for items of thickness more than 5mm, 0.46kg/m² (64 microns) for items of thickness between 2mm and 5mm and 0.33kg/m² (47 microns) for items less than 2mm thick. Parts shall not be galvanized if their shapes are such that the pickling solutions cannot be removed with certainty or if galvanizing would be unsatisfactory or if their mechanical strength would be reduced. Surfaces in contact with oil shall not be galvanized unless they are subsequently coated with an oil resistant varnish or paint. In the event of damage to the galvanizing the method used for repair shall be subject to the approval of the Engineer in Charge or that of his representative. In no case the repair of galvanisation on site will be permitted. The threads of all galvanized bolts and screwed rods shall be cleared of spelter by spinning or brushing. A die shall not be used for cleaning the threads unless specifically approved by the Engineer in Charge. All nuts shall be galvanized. The threads of nuts shall be cleaned with a tap and the threads oiled. Partial immersion of the work shall not be permitted and the galvanizing tank must therefore be sufficiently large to permit galvanizing to be carried out by one immersion.

5.3.1 Increase in Length due to Stranding When straightened out, each wire in any particular layer of a stranded conductor, except the central wire, is longer than the stranded conductor by an amount depending on the lay ratio of that layer. 5.3.2 Resistance and Mass of Conductor VOL-II(TS) E12- I- ALL ALUMINIUM ALLOY CONDUCTOR

Page 5 of 13

The resistance of any length of stranded conductor is the resistance of the same length of any one wire multiplied by a constant as set out in the table below. The mass of each wire in any particular layer of the stranded conductor, except the central wire, will be greater than that of an equal length of straight wire by an amount depending on the lay ratio of that layer. The total mass of any length of an aluminium stranded conductor is, therefore, obtained by multiplying the mass of an equal length of straight wire by an appropriate constant as mentioned below. In calculating the stranding constants as mentioned in the table below, the mean lay ratio, that is the arithmetic mean of the relevant minimum and maximum values in table for lay ratio has been assumed for each layer. 5.3.3 Calculated Breaking Load of Conductor For a conductor containing not more than 37 wires, 95% of the sum of strength of the individual wires calculated from the values of the minimum breaking load given in this specification. For a conductor containing more than 37 wires, 90% of the sum of the strengths of the individual wire calculated from the values of the minimum breaking load given in this specification. 5.3.4 Calculated Area and Maximum Resistance of Conductor

The actual area of a stranded conductor has been taken as the sum of the cross-sectional areas of the individual wires of nominal diameter. Maximum resistance values of stranded conductor have been calculated on the basis of maximum resistively and the cross-sectional area based on the minimum diameter of wires. 5.4 Stranding Constants Number of Wires in Conductor

NOTE: For the purpose of calculation the mean lay ratio shall be taken as the arithmetic mean of the relevant minimum and maximum values given in this table 8.0

LENGTHS AND VARIATIONS IN LENGTHS: Unless otherwise agreed between the Owner and the Contractor, stranded aluminium alloy conductors shall be supplied in the manufacturer’s usual production lengths to be indicated in the bid Schedule. The Owner reserves the right to specify particular lengths of conductor such that certain drum lengths will be shorter than others. There will in both cases be a permitted variation of –0 + 5% in the length of any one conductor length.

9.0 TESTS 9.1 Type Tests The following tests should have been carried out as per relevant ISS 9.1.1 Ultimate Tensile Strength Test This test is intended to confirm not only the breaking strength of the finished conductor but also that the conductor has been uniformly stranded. A conductor sample of minimum 5mtr. length fitted with compression dead end clamps at either end shall be mounted in a suitable tensile test machine. Circles perpendicular to the axis of the conductor shall be marked at two places on its surface. Tension on the conductor sample shall be increased at a steady rate upto 50% of the minimum UTS specified and held for one minute. The circles drawn shall not be distorted due to relative movement of the individual strands. Thereafter the load shall be increased at a steady rate to the specified minimum UTS and held at that load for one minute. The conductor sample shall not fail during this period. The applied load shall then be increased until the failing load is reached and the value recorded. 9.1.2 D.C Resistance Test On a conductor sample of minimum 5mtr. length two contact clamps shall be fitted with a predetermined bolt torque. The resistance between the clamps shall be measured using a Kelvin double bridge by initially placing the clamps at zero separation and subsequently one meter apart. The test shall be repeated at least five times and the average value recorded. The value obtained shall be corrected to the value at 200 C, which shall conform to the requirements of this specification. 9.2 9.2..1

Routine Tests Measurement of Physical Dimensions: The samples should meet the desired dimensional requirements before conducting following Routine Tests as per relevant ISS.

Page 8 of 13

Samples for the tests specified in this specification shall be taken by the manufacturer before stranding, from not less than 10% of the individual lengths of aluminium alloy wire included in any one final heat-treatment batch and which will be included in any one consignment of the stranded conductors to be supplied. Samples shall then be obtained by cutting 1.2 meters from the outer end of the finished conductor from not more than 10% of the finished reels or drums. Tests for electrical and mechanical properties of aluminium alloy wire shall ordinarily be made before stranding since wires unlaid from conductors may have different physical properties from those of the wire prior to stranding because of the deformation brought about by stranding and by straightening for test. Spools offered for inspection shall be divided into equal lots, the number of lots being equal to the number of samples to be selected, a fraction of a lot being counted as s complete lot. One sample spool shall be selected at random from each lot. The following test shall be carried out once on samples of completed line conductor during each production run of up to 500 kms of the conductor from each manufacturing facility . 9.3 Breaking Load Test The breaking load of one specimen, cut from each of the samples taken shall be determined by means of a suitable tensile testing machine. The load shall be applied gradually and the rate of separation of the jaws of the testing machine shall be not less than 25 mm / min and not greater than 100mm /min. 9.4 Elongation Test The elongation of one specimen cut from each of the samples taken shall be determined as follows : The specimen shall be straightened by hand and an original gauge length of 200 mm shall be marked on the wire. A tensile load shall be applied as described above and the elongation shall be measured after the fractured ends have been fitted together. If the fracture occurs outside the gauge marks, or within 25 mm of either mark, and the required elongation is not obtained, the test shall be disregarded and another test should be made. When tested before and after stranding, the elongation shall not be less than 4% on a gauge length of 200 mm 9.5 D.C Resistance Test VOL-II(TS)

Lot Size (N) Sample Size E1 E2 N < 300 Subject to agreement 300 < N < 2000 4 3 2000 < N < 5000 8 4 5000 < N < 10000 12 6 If more than 10000 insulators are concerned, they shall be divided into an optimum number of lots comprising between 2000 and 10000 insulators. The results of the tests shall be evaluated separately for each lot. The insulators shall be selected by the purchaser's representative from the lost at random. The samples shall be subjected to the applicable sampling tests. The sampling tests are: Verification of dimensions - (E1+E2) Verification of the locking system - (E2) Verification of tightness of the interface between end fittings Et - (E2) Insulators housing Verification of the specified mechanical load SML - (E1) Galvanizing test - (E2) In the event of a failure of the sample to satisfy a test, the retesting procedure shall be as follows: If only one insulator or metal part fails to comply with the sampling tests, a new sample equal to twice the quantity originally submitted to the tests shall be subjected to retesting. The retesting shall comprise the test in which failure occurs. If two or insulator or metal parts fail to comply with any of the sampling tests or if any failure occurs during the retesting, the complete lot is considered as not complying with this standard and shall be withdrawn by the manufacturer. Provided the cause of the failure can be clearly identified, the manufacturer may sort the lot to eliminate all the insulators with these defects. The sorted lot then be resubmitted for testing. The number then selected shall be three times the first chosen quantity for tests. If any insulators fail during this retesting, the complete lot is considered as not complying with this standard and shall be withdrawn by the manufacturer. 11.2 Verification of dimensions ( E1 + E2) The dimensions given in the drawings shall be verified. The tolerances given in the drawing are valid. If no tolerances are given in the drawings the values mentioned in this specification shall hold good. VOL-II(TS)

11.3 Verification of the locking system (E2) This test applied only to the insulators equipped with socket coupling as specified by IEC-120 and is performed according to IEC 383.

11.4 Verification of tightness of the interface between end fittings and insulator housing (E2). One insulator selected randomly from the sample E2, shall be subjected to crack indication by due penetration, in accordance with ISO 3452, on the housing in the zone embracing the complete length of the interface between the housing and metal fitting and metal and including an additional area, sufficiently extended beyond the end of the metal part. The indication shall be performed in the following way. > The surface shall be properly pre-cleaned with the cleaner; > The penetrant, which shall act during 20 minutes, shall be applied on the cleaned surface. > With in 5 minutes after the application of the penetrant, the insulator shall be subjected, at the ambient temperature, to a tensile load of 70% of the SML, applied between the metal fittings; the tensile load shall be increased rapidly but smoothly from zero upto 70% f the SML, and then maintained at this value for 1 minute; > The surface shall be cleaned with the excess penetrant removed, and dried; > The developer shall be applied if necessary; > The surface shall be inspected. Some housing materials may be penetrated by the penetrant, In such cases evidence shall be provided to validate the interpretation of the results. After the 1 min, test at 70% of the SML, if any crack occur, the housing and, if necessary, the metal fittings and the core shall be cut, perpendicularly to the crack in the middle of the widest of the indicated cracks, into two halves. The surface of the two halves shall then be investigated for the depth of the cracks. 11.5 Verification of the specified mechanical load SML. The insulators of the sample E1 shall be subjected at ambient temperature to a tensile load, applied between the couplings. The tensile load shall be increased rapidly but smoothly from zero to approximately 75% of t he SML, and then be gradually increased to the SML in a time between 30 sec to 90 sec. If 100% of the SML is reached in less than 90 s, the load (100% of the SML) shall be maintained for the remainder of the 90 s. (This test is considered to be equivalent to a 1 min withstand test at the SML). This insulators have passed the test at 13.4 Et 13.5 above if ; > No failure (breakage or complete pull out of the core, or fracture of the metal fitting) occurs either during the 1 min. 70% withstand test (a) or during the 1 min. 100% withstand test (b).
