Extension of Cable Electrical Assessment Techniques to Detect and Discriminate Radiation Aging on Cable Insulation Systems - CRADA 562 (Abstract)


The purpose of this study of the electrical responses of gamma radiation aged low voltage nuclear cables is to advance tools to determine cable condition (extent of damage) and identify degradation location along the cable length. The developed technology will provide nuclear plant operators with the options to focus cable repair, mitigation, or replacement efforts locally and avoid wholesale cable replacement.
