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.
