FEAR - Finite Element Analysis for cable Ratings
(this project has ended)
Copyright: James Pilgrim
This project aims to validate or improve existing cable ratings methods for high power cable transmission circuits used on the National Grid. FEA models are being developed to deal with a range of circuit configurations to solve for complex circuit designs and geometries. Having benchmarked existing methods for buried cable circuits, both with and without forced cooling, the project investigated the possible thermal constraints posed by cable joints. The next phase of work will involve thermal modelling of cable crossings.
