A project investigating the repair of fluid filled cables.
The project seeks to identify, develop and assess self repairing systems for fluid filled cables such that damage to the sheath will self heal to avoid oil leakage losses and the resulting environmental damage and potential contamination of the cable that could compromise its performance and lead to premature failure. The project will review and rank a number of candidate self-repair technologies in test construction geometries that are capable of supporting in-situ cable self-repair for medium and high voltage cables.
