High and Medium Voltage Trailing Cable Splices and Connections. Vol. II - Trailing Cable Couplers.
NTIS: PB 299-596 :108 pages
This report describes a study of the factors that affect medium voltage (661 to 1,000 volts) and high voltage (1,001 to 7,500 volts) trailing cable couplers for use in underground coal mines to connect trailing cables. Improvements in quality, dependability, and safety of medium and high voltage couplers are presented in the form of requirements for couplers. The results of an investigation of high voltage trailing cable coupler design and of whether trailing cable couplers must have a metallic shell as required by cfr 30 part 75.805 Are presented. Conclusions and recommended research programs are included that describe the present situation and future development approaches.
