are manufactured to Australian Standards and specific customer requirements, including most international standards. Electrical, mechanical and cost considerations determine the selection of a conductor for a particular application. The values of resistance, inductance and, where applicable, capacitance, should be such that voltage regulation, temperature rise and losses will be within acceptable limits when the conductor is carrying the required current load. On high voltage lines, radio interference characteristics or corona losses often dictate the minimum diameters which may be used. Conductor design and span lengths are also determined by mechanical loads likely to be imposed by wind or ice, as well as by economic considerations. This catalogue presents the standard range of Olex overhead conductors and cables. Information on other power and industrial cable products is available from the Olex office in your state.

Bare Overhead Condu

Olex offers a number of materials meeting the requirements of both Australian and International Standards.

Aluminium 1350 High purity electrical conductor (EC) grade aluminium (alloy 1350) has a conductivity of 61% IACS and UTS of 160­185MPa. Aluminium alloy 1120 Olex alloy 1120 has a conductivity of 59% IACS and UTS of 240­250MPa and 40­50% higher strength than a similar conductor of EC grade material. This alloy can be considered a `high tech' version of EC grade aluminium and offers significant advantages over older type alloys, such as alloy 6201. Steel-reinforced aluminium alloy 1120 conductors have a high strength to weight ratio, resulting in small sags on long span lengths. Fittings for alloy 1120 conductors are similar to those used for EC grade aluminium conductors. Please note that Olex no longer offers alloy 6201 conductors, as they have little, if any, practical advantage over alloy 1120. Compared with alloy 1120, alloy 6201 conductors have poor electrical performance, are less resistant to corrosion, more susceptible to fatigue failure, more expensive and require the use of special fittings. Copper Hard drawn copper wire produced from high conductivity alloy 110A has a conductivity of 97% IACS and UTS of 405­460MPa. Galvanised steel Galvanised steel wire made from fully-killed steel with a carbon content of 0.6% has a UTS of 1.31­1.39GPa. It is

provides additional protection against corrosion. Conductors incorporating aluminium-clad steel are more corrosion-resistant than those incorporating galvanised steel. Aluminium alloy 1120 conductors are becoming more popular as replacements for steel-reinforced conductors in areas of high corrosion risk. The exposed surface of aluminium wires can be specially treated to provide a dull, non-specular finish when conductors are required to blend into the environment. Aluminium alloy 1120 conductors may be identified by means of a blue thread incorporated within the conductor.

Aluminium-clad steel Aluminium-clad steel has an aluminium cladding with a radial thickness not less than 5% of the overall wire diameter. It has a conductivity of 20.3% IACS and UTS of 1.27­1.34GPa. Conductors incorporating aluminium-clad steel for reinforcement have lower electrical resistance and provide better protection against corrosion than those using galvanised steel.

Construction

The wires in all bare conductors are stranded concentrically with successive layers having an opposite direction of lay, the outermost layer being right-handed. When required, a larger central wire (king wire) is included in a conductor. The diameter of this wire is based on conductor design considerations and is usually 5% greater than the surrounding wires. The incorporation of a king wire is often an advantage for ACSR type conductors, as it ensures that the surrounding layer of wires fits firmly on the central wire. ACSR conductors may be subjected to corrosive conditions such as high pollution found in industrial areas or salt spray in coastal areas. The application of a high melting point grease over the steel wires

Packing

Conductor lengths are determined from a consideration of such factors as physical drum dimensions, drum weights, span length and handling equipment.

Low Voltage Aerial Bund

AS/NZS 3560 specifies the requirements of Aerial Bundled Cables with XLPE insulation for use up to 0.6/1kV. It is a result of considerable deliberation among supply authorities and manufacturers seeking to improve on the overseas standard, and features unique tests to verify superior field service performance.

Conductor

All four conductors are manufactured from high conductivity high purity aluminium alloy 1350 and are stranded circular compacted. Based on extensive development testing and production research, the surface of the conductor is specially treated to improve adhesion of the insulation to the conductor. This is important because the installed cable tension is completely provided by this `adhesion' or 'friction` between the conductor and the insulation.

Insulation

The insulation consists of X-90UV, a cross-linked polyethylene with a minimum of 2% carbon black to provide adequate protection from ultraviolet radiation. This material is far superior to PVC, in its ability to withstand higher operating temperatures, is more robust during installation, and has much better (higher) insulation resistance values.

10

In the fully supported LV ABC system tension is shared equally by all four conductors. This has distinct advantages, one obvious benefit being higher working and operating tensions.

led Cables

For improved characteristics in fire or overload situations, X-FP-90 insulation is available. For this application, Olex uses a highly filled XLPE with greater levels of carbon black and other fillers. Both insulation types are tested at 80°C with a special adhesion test that simulates the conditions prevailing under tension at strain clamps to ensure no failure of insulation adhesion occurs in the field. X-FP-90 insulated cables are additionally tested at the higher temperature of 120°C, and are also subjected to a heat radiation test that simulates conditions prevalent in bush fires. The X-90UV material used by Olex passes the criteria test at 105°C which provides our customer with a further safety margin over the Standard. Proper carbon black dispersion is even more important than carbon black content and Olex has developed special processing procedures to ensure adequate protection from UV radiation. Both X-90UV and X-FP-90 compounds are tested for carbon black content and dispersion.

LV ABC at suspension clamp and at strain point

The cores

Each phase core is marked with numerals 1, 2 or 3 and with one rib, two ribs or three ribs to denote the three phases. The neutral core carries equally spaced ribs right round the circumference. These ribs facilitate identification of the phases and the neutral even when numerals cannot be properly seen due to bad light. Alternative identification means, using coloured extruded stripes, are also available. To expedite ascertaining the approximate length of cable left on the drum, sequential six-digit numerals are marked on one active core at one metre intervals. Drum lengths start at any number with the lowest number near the end at the drum barrel. The cores are laid up in a bundle with a left hand lay. Rating of LV ABC is based on a conductor operating temperature of 80°C.

Covered Conductors

Covered conductors are conductors covered with insulation material but without conductor or insulation screens. They must be used in a similar manner to open wire 11 to 33kV bare overhead systems with exceptions described in the Australian Standard for Covered Conductors, AS/NZS 3675. Two main types of Covered Conductors are available: CC and CCT. Olex technical staff can provide detailed recommendations on the most suitable installation conditions and fittings for both systems. Operating temperatures (a) Normal operation 80°C (b) Emergency operation 100°C (c) Short circuit operation 210°C (5s max); (250°C for aluminium clad steel)

Full Thickness Covering (CCT)

CCT covered conductors have a specified thickness of covering for each of the nominated working voltages. While still required to operate under similar principles to a bare wire or CC system, they have electrical and mechanical characteristics which permit them to remain in contact with tree limbs for an extended period dependent on abrasive characteristics of the tree, frequency and strength of prevailing winds and operating temperature. CCT show better performance in polluted environments. They are suitable for use in `spacer cable' systems and in the Insulated Unscreened Conductor (IUC) systems. Conductors Conductors are available in aluminium, aluminium alloy and aluminium clad steel. Water blocking The conductors are water blocked with a special material meeting the test requirements of AS/NZS 3675. Covering The conductors are covered with a track resistant UV stabilised XLPE or with an inner layer of non-UV stabilised XLPE, and an outer layer of UV stabilised High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). In the latter case, the average thickness of HDPE is not more than 40% of the specified minimum average thickness, and not less than 1.0mm. CCT are marked on the external surface with "CCT", "Olex", year of manufacture, and conductor material. They are also marked with sequential six-digit numbers at 1-metre intervals, with the lowest number at the inner end of the drum.

Covered Conductors

CC covered conductors have a covering with a minimum average thickness of 2.0mm for use on all working voltages up to and including 19/33kV. CC can withstand intermittent contact with conductive material between phases or to ground, e.g. trees and branches, but should not remain in permanent contact. Conductors Conductors are available in aluminium, aluminium alloy and aluminium clad steel. Aluminium alloy 1120 was developed by Olex with technology obtained originally under license from Sweden in 1978. Alloy 1120 has excellent mass-tension-conductance properties and in Australia and Sweden has taken the place of other types of aluminium alloys. Water blocking Olex pioneered the development of water blocking for covered conductors in Australia. Extensive research in material processing and techniques has enabled the manufacturing of covered conductors that are water blocked with a special material meeting all the test requirements of AS/NZS 3675. Covering The conductors are covered with a track resistant UV stabilised XLPE. CC are marked on the external surface with "CC", "Olex", year of manufacture, and conductor material. They are also marked with sequential six-digit numbers at 1-metre intervals, with the lowest number at the inner end of the drum.

Note Reactance and voltage drop are based on three cables laid in flat formation spaced 0.46m apart. The values can also be applied to three-phase circuits with cables in trefoil formation. Continuous current ratings are based on an ambient temperature of 40°C, maximum conductor temperature of 80°C and solar radiation intensity of 1000W/m 2. Fault current ratings are based on initial and final conductor temperatures of 80°C and 210°C respectively.

High Voltage Aerial Bund

Two types of HV ABC are available: Metallic Screened (MS HV ABC) and Non Metallic Screened (NMS HV ABC).

Metallic Screened High Voltage Aerial Bundled Cable conforming to AS/NZS 3599.1 incorporates a metallic screen of copper wires and a galvanised steel messenger. Non-Metallic Screened High Voltage Aerial Bundled Cable conforming to AS/NZS 3599.2 is provided only with a semi-conductive screen and the fault currents are carried by the high conductivity Aluminium Alloy (1120) catenary. NMS HV ABC is smaller, lighter and less expensive than MS HV ABC.

18

In HV ABC the three phase cores are supported from a bare `messenger' or `catenary' to prevent straining the insulation of the high voltage phase cores.

Metallic Screened HV ABC

Conductors Phase conductors are stranded circular compacted aluminium alloy 1350 to H68 condition. The standard catenary is manufactured from galvanised stranded high tensile steel. For corrosive environments catenaries of aluminium clad steel are available. Conductor Screen, Insulation and Insulation Screen Semiconductive conductor screen, XLPE insulation and semiconductive insulation screen are triple extruded. The insulation screen is hand strippable without preheating and complies with strippability and adhesion tests given in AS/NZS 3599.1. Figures and words "1 ONE", "2 TWO" and "3 THREE" are printed on the insulation screen to identify the three phase cores. Alternative identification means are available on request. A water swellable textile tape is applied over the insulation screen to prevent longitudinal ingress of moisture in the event of damage to the outer sheath.

HV ABC in suspension and strain clamps

Metallic Screen The metallic screen comprises a layer of helically applied copper wires. For short circuit protection, two types of screens, a light and a heavy duty, are available. A separator tape to prevent the penetration of sheath material between the screen wires is applied over the metallic screen. On this design of cable it should be noted that the screens of individual cores are not in direct contact with each other and therefore the fault current level is limited. Sheath High density polyethylene (HDPE) is used as the standard outer sheath of each phase core. In addition to the identification on the cores, the sheaths of each phase cable are marked with phase numbers matching those of the cores. Furthermore, identification of the bundled cable comprises embossing of the words "Olex", the year of manufacture, and the voltage on the sheath or the use of printed tapes inserted throughout the length under the sheath of a phase cable.

Operating temperature (a) Normal operation 90°C (b) Emergency operation 105°C (c) Short circuit operation 250°C (5s max) This cable can be used for aerial as well as underground installations. strippability and adhesion tests given in AS/NZS 3599.2. Figures and words "1 ONE", "2 TWO" and "3 THREE" are printed on the insulation screen to identify the three phase cores. In addition the words "Olex", the year of manufacture, and the voltage is printed on one of the phase cables. Another phase cable is printed with sequential numbers at one metre intervals to indicate the length of cable remaining on the drum. Olex has developed a special NMS HV ABC with far greater resistance to damage from abrasion during installation or due to brushing with trees. This special cable has a semiconductive HDPE layer over the hand-strippable insulation screen, providing less risk of damage during installation and service.

Non Metallic Screened HV ABC

Conductors Phase conductors are stranded circular compacted aluminium alloy 1350 to H68 condition. The standard catenary is bare stranded circular compacted all aluminium alloy AAAC/1220 conductor. For special applications, such as high wind locations, aluminium-clad steel-reinforced catenaries are available.
