Cable Design for Protective & Metering Circuits in Substation Control Applications

Free Webinar: Available On Demand

Cable selection plays an important role in both the reliability, and longevity of a modern substation. This webinar presents various technologies for substation cabling for control, metering, and protection circuits. Presenter Peter Cox will also compare the benefits and weaknesses of each alternative, and the role of control cable in substation life.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn the advantages and disadvantages of various cable designs to implement in engineering substation layouts
  • Understand the performance of helical vs longitudinal copper shielding and the role of a ground wire
  • Learn how to identify cabling that will properly handle fault currents, and last for the life of the substation without failure, while providing effective protection to connected equipment
  • Have an overview of the basic electrical schematic flow, how the automation assists with data collection and sharing, and how components interact together to create a smart system

Peter Cox brings 31 years of experience in the industrial automation and process control fields to his role as director of industrial projects for Belden's industrial cable business. His experience with variable frequency drive (VFD) systems goes back to 1988, when he participated in the test of the first VFD cables developed with a major drive manufacturer. With a background in engineering, sales and project management, and a degree in mechanical engineering, Peter's VFD cabling recommendations are both practical and sound.

For more than 100 years, customers who have required unsurpassed performance and durability for signal transmission have counted on the Belden brand. In the 20th century, that trust was built on high-performance wire and cable products.

Today, Belden designs, manufactures and sells a comprehensive portfolio of cable, connectivity and networking products for the transmission of signals for data, sound and video applications.
