Cable accessories account for the least capital expenditure of a distribution network but can prove to be the weakest component of the system because they have to be assembled on site. This book examines the detailed workings of accessories and provides information to assist engineers and jointers who are responsible for specifying and installing medium voltage cable accessories.

Terminations, separable connectors, cable joints and associated equipment such as cable glands and cleats are examined in detail with explanations of the various technologies used. Great emphasis is placed on failure modes and methods of preventing potential problems in service.

By following the information presented, the reliability of accessories will be improved thus reducing the cost of expensive failures.

This book will appeal to Lead Electrical Engineers, Electrical Project Engineers, Principal Electrical Engineers, Plant Engineers, LV HV EHV Cable Jointers, ATEX Inspectors, Substation Commissioning Managers, LV HV EHV Project Managers, Buyers & Procurement Managers, SAP's and Sales Managers & Engineers.
