SWG-5 surge wave generator

SWG-5 Surge Wave Generator


Surge Wave Generators SWG-series are intended for: 

- Locating distance to a cable fault using high voltage reflectometer ISKRA-4;

- Cable fault location using receiver P-806 or POISK-2016 receivers with acoustic method.

According to statistics, the most common faults in the three-phase underground power cable occur such as "single-phase breakdown" (breakdown of one of the cores to the cable sheath). Breakdown of this type can be "creeping" (intermittent) (ie recovering insulation up to a certain voltage, which is lower than the operating voltage of the cable), and with the "insulation leakage" (insulation resistance decreases up to tens kilohms - hundreds ohms).

Quite frequent cases of breakdown of the two cores one to another and to cable sheath (line-to-line short circuit).

For single-phase breakdowns developers recommend the acoustic method of finding and identifying the fault location.

For the line-to-line short circuit it can be recommended induction method using GZCH-2500 with receiver P-806 or POISK-2016 fault location for "loop" with preliminary insulation burning.
