Very Low Frequency (VLF)/Tan-Delta Testing
VLF and Tan-Delta Testing together indentify cable defects and grade the cable deterioration (or remaining life). Historically, cable testing has been overlooked. Concerns about the possibility of damaging the cable or just not being able to accurately track cable deterioration left them largely ignored in most maintenance programs. Many companies even today just don’t test cables as they should.
With cable systems nearing the end of their design life, how do you begin an upgrade program? VLF/Tan-Delta diagnostic tests help you prioritize expensive cable repair or replacement and furthermore avoid in-service failure and production downtime.
