SPEC 80209

35kV AL 133% TRXLPE Full Neutral Primary UD HI-DRI-PLUS®
Renewable (Solar or Wind)

Moisture Blocked Aluminum Conductors. TRXLP Insulation. Full Copper Concentric Neutrals. XLPE Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Moisture Blocked 1350 H16/H26 Aluminum, Class B Compressed or Compressed Unilay Stranded
  2. Strand Shield:Semi-conducting Crosslinked Polyethylene
  3. Insulation:Tree Retardant Crosslinked Polyethylene (TRXLP)
  4. Insulation Shield:Strippable Semi-conducting Crosslinked Polyethylene
  5. Concentric Neutral:Annealed Copper Wires Helically Applied Full Concentric Neutral
  6. Overall Jacket & Water Block:HI-DRI-PLUS® Water Swellable Powder Black Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE) with Red Extruded Stripes

Applications and Features:

  • Predominately used for renewable projects with wind or solar applications.
  • Suitable for use in wet or dry locations, direct burial, underground ducts, and exposure to direct sunlight.
  • To be used at conductor temperature not to exceed 105ºC normal operation.
  • UL listed MV-105
  • Under short circuit conditions, the maximum allowable shield temperature for crosslinked jackets is 350ºC as opposed to only 200ºC for a PE type of jacket. The higher temperature allows for more fault current capacity, thus reducing the amount of copper required in the neutral design.
  • Not recommended for use above 90ºC in wind farm applications

Specifications:

  • UL 1072 Medium-Voltage Power Cables
  • ICEA S-94-649 Standard for Concentric Neutral Cables Rated 5 - 46kV
  • AEIC CS-8 Specification for extruded dielectric shielded power cables rated for 5 through 46KV
