2) control cable should be left with a spare core. Spare core should be considered cable length, core cross-section and cable laying conditions.

3) The same control cable is not used in the following circuits.

  • AC current and AC voltage circuits, AC and DC circuits, strong and weak circuits;
  • Low level signal and high level signal circuits;
  • Control circuits for double-set trip coils of AC circuit breakers and weak power control circuits for each phase of split-phase operation;
  • Star wiring and open triangle wiring circuits from the power distribution unit to the relay room.

4) Each pair of round-trip conductors of a weak circuit shall be placed in the same control cable.

5) The three-phase conductors and neutral conductor of the secondary winding of the same current transformer shall be placed in the same control cable.

(6) The same voltage transformer star wiring secondary winding of the three-phase conductor and its neutral conductor should be placed in the same control cable. The same voltage transformer open triangle wiring secondary winding 2 (or 3) conductors should be placed in the same control cable.

V. Control cable cross-section should be selected in accordance with the following provisions:

1) the current circuit section of the protection device should make the current transformer error does not exceed the specified value;

2)The voltage drop of the cable shall not exceed 3% of the rated secondary voltage;

3) The voltage drop of the connecting cable between the power bus and the controlled equipment shall not exceed 10% of the rated secondary voltage;

4) strong control circuit cross-section is not less than 1.5mm2. weak control circuit cross-section is not less than 0.5mm2;

5) measurement circuit cable cross-section should be in line with the current national standards “power device measurement instrumentation device design specifications” GB / T 50063. Control cable implementation standard GB9330-2010. if the flame retardant cable, should also comply with the technical conditions of the IEC337-8 standard.

Fifth, the choice of metal shielding of control cables should comply with the following provisions:

1)Strong voltage power distribution units or with high voltage cables in parallel longer and need to suppress interference outside, 1)Strong power control cables do not contain metal shielding;

2)Control cables for weak electrical signals and control circuits shall have metal shielding in the absence of effective anti-interference measures;

3) Cables for relay protection and secondary circuits of computerized monitoring systems shall be shielded;

4) DC power supply cables for control and protection equipment shall be shielded cables.

VII. The selection of metal shielding type of control cable shall be based on the possible impact of electrical interference to take comprehensive measures to suppress interference, to meet the requirements of reducing interference or overvoltage, and to meet the following provisions:

1) weak control cables located in power distribution installations above 110kV shall use total shielding or double-layer total shielding.

2)The control cables of current, voltage and signal connectors of integrated circuits and microcomputer protection shall be shielded cables.

3) The shielding selection of control cables for signaling circuits of computer monitoring system shall comply with the following provisions.

  • total shielding can be used for switching signals;
  • high-level analog signals should be selected twisted core of the total shielding, if necessary, can also choose to twist the core of the sub-shield;
  • Low-level analog signals or pulse volume signals shall be divided into stranded-core shielding and, if necessary, composite total shielding.

4) In other cases, the appropriate type of shielding should be selected according to the electromagnetic induction, electrostatic induction and ground potential rise and other influencing factors.

5) When the cable has steel armor and metal jacket, it should make full use of its shielding function.

VIII. The grounding method of metal shielding of control cables shall comply with the following provisions:

Metal shielding standards:
For the metal shielding layer of the control cable, the standard mainly involves the material, structure and performance requirements of the shielding layer to ensure that the cable can effectively resist external electromagnetic interference in the course of use, to ensure the stability of signal transmission.

Material requirements: the metal shielding layer should be selected with good conductivity, corrosion resistance of materials, such as copper tape or copper wire.
