Reference HD 632 S2:2008
Title Power cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for rated voltages above 36 kV (Um = 42 kV) up to 150 kV (Um = 170 kV)
Project Number 16460
Abstract/Scope This standard specifies test requirements for power cables with extruded insulation, of the types listed in Table 1, and their accessories, of rated voltage, U, above 36 kV (Um = 42 kV) up to and including 150 kV (Um = 170 kV), for fixed installations intended for transmission and distribution systems, and for use in power generating plants and sub-stations. Depending on the design and the system conditions, additional or even fewer tests or other requirements which are not described in the Part 1 can be specified in the particular sections of Parts 3 to 11. In these parts each section is either: 1) A full tabulation showing how the particular section either agrees, or deviates from, each clause of Part 1; or 2) A reduced tabulation showing only those places where the particular section deviates from Part 1. The requirements apply to single-core cables and three-core cables with separate cores and to their accessories for usual conditions of installation and operation, but not to special cables and their accessories, such as those designed for submarine cables, for which modification to the standard tests may be necessary or special test conditions may need to be devised. This standard does not cover transition joints between cables with extruded insulation and paper insulated cables.

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
