B1 Insulated Cables
To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of insulated cables. To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesising state of the art practices and developing recommendations.
The activities of CIGRE Study Committee B1 concern all types of AC and DC insulated cable systems for land and submarine connections and are focused mainly on high voltage applications. Whenever appropriate, however, lower voltage applications are also considered.
Within this field, the scope of work of the Study Committee covers design, manufacture, installation, service, quality assurance, tests and testing technology, behaviour in and interaction with the network, reliability, asset management, maintenance and diagnostic techniques in service.
Each Study Committee oversees a number of Working Groups.
