Preface to Third Edition by G. F. Moore: The first and second editions of the Electric Cables Handbook were well received and there were many requests for a revised edition. The third edition provides a substantial, comprehensive and up-to-date review, reflecting the changes which have occurred in the cable industry during the last seven years. The Handbook therefore continues to be a major reference book for professional engineers and electrical contractors involved in cables.

The Handbook covers all types of energy cables, from wiring and flexible cables for general use to distribution, transmission and submarine cables. It includes information on materials, design principles, installation and standards, and the many appendices contain extensive tables of data on commonly used cable types.

Once again it has been difficult to decide which older types of cable should be excluded and which new types should be included. While the Handbook has been comprehensively revised, the main aim has been to describe adequately those new energy cables which reflect the present dynamic state of the industry. The description of cables in fires has been completely rewritten; the significant developments in high performance materials, both polymeric and paper laminate, are described in detail; the application of new materials to high voltage systems is thoroughly covered; for the first time there is an extensive description of the recent developments in high temperature superconductivity, with the emphasis on potential applications in power engineering.

The Handbook has also been significantly extended to give a broad view of communication cables for the power engineer. Recognising the increasing impact of telecommunications in the power industry, a new and substantive section describes the application of optical fibres in power transmission systems. There is also an additional section on communication cables; this includes a revision of the original chapter on electronic cables.

Reflecting the extensive revision of the text, extra material has also been added to the appendices, references and bibliography. Much of the original text has been retained in the interest of providing the necessary background to the continuing technical developments in the industry.

As in previous editions, this Handbook draws on the extensive expertise and experience of the staff of BICC Cables Ltd and the editor would like to thank the many contributors for their text, their collaboration, and many helpful suggestions. 

A particular tribute is due to the editorial committee of Dr D. G. Dalgoutte, Dr A. W. Field, and Dr K. Julian who organised the work as well as providing their own detailed technical knowledge, and to D. McAllister for his work on the first two editions and the late E. W. G. Bungay who co-edited the second edition. Finally, thanks are also due to the directors and management of BICC Cables Ltd for the provision of time and facilities for preparing the manuscript and illustrations.

SCOPE OF THE THIRD EDITION: The first edition of the book covered all types of insulated cable for the supply of electrical energy for voltages from about 100 V to 525 kV. The second edition covered a similar range of cables but also reflected the significant changes in materials, the application of polymeric cables at higher voltages and the increasing technology content of high voltage (HV) transmission systems. Owing to the subsequent extensive growth of cables for electronic equipment, and their similarity to some existing energy cables, the second edition included a chapter on such applications at lower voltages. The third edition describes the further elimination of the traditional distinctions between materials, the wider use of fire retardant cables and other environmental issues, the significant advances in dielectric materials at high voltages, and the major technology developments in supertension systems. High temperature superconductivity is discussed with the emphasis on practical applications. 

We have resisted calls for a comprehensive coverage of communication cables. Nevertheless the scope of the edition has been widened substantially to include some communication cables, in particular the use of optical fibres within energy cables.

The division into chapters has followed the principles established in the earlier editions and the specialist contributors have reflected the current patterns for manufacturing and marketing cables. For the benefit of the reader, and for ease of reference, each chapter is almost self-contained; there is therefore some repetition but it is hoped that this is not excessive. 

of the book and the cable industry There are no sharp distinctions between cable types and applications and in practice there is considerable overlap; this presents problems in chapter sequence. Operating voltage provides a rough guide but does not represent a clear division between cable types; nevertheless progress through the book broadly follows increasing voltage.

The cable making industry, together with its relationships with users and standardising authorities, was built mainly around specific factories for established groupings of cable types. Historically these groupings arose because of the materials used in the cables and the types of manufacturing plant adopted; size and weight of the cables can be allied with the same pattern.
The division of the book is set out below.
Part 1 Many aspects of cable design are common to all types; new developments and trends in usage continue to eliminate the traditional distinctions between materials. Part 1 deals extensively with materials and design features which are reasonably applicable to most cables. 

Part 2 Historically a group of cables generally known as ‘wiring and general’ grew around cables mainly with rubber insulation; these contrasted with power distribution cables with impregnated paper insulation. Whereas paper cables were usually bought directly by the end-user, the wiring cables were commonly marketed through distributors and wholesalers. Although the main product types still remain, the insulants used in the two fields are often similar, i.e. thermoplastics and thermosets (rubbers and crosslinked thermoplastics). These cables are often further subdivided by technology or factory, e.g. cables having thermoset insulation and sheaths, cables produced in large quantity for specific applications (such as PVC insulated cables for fixed wiring), and flexible cables. 

Part 3 This part describes cables required for public supply and heavy industrial distribution. However, the latter are designed for a wide range of power requirements and do overlap part 2. For example the British Standard for PVC armoured cables for industrial use is common to cables covered by parts 2 and 3 of the book. It is common for cables with conductor sizes of 25 mm 2 and above to be classed as power distribution cables.

Part 4 This covers cables for public supply transmission systems, but below 132 kV there is some overlap with part 3. Historically, transmission cables have been of the pressureassisted paper insulated type and major developments in paper laminated dielectrics are included. With the further development of polymeric materials, polyethylene (PE), crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE), and EPR are now well established as insulants for voltages of 132kV and above; they are described in some detail and extend the use covered earlier in the book. 

Part 5 This covers the very specialist, and growing area, of submarine cables; it deals with system design, manufacture and installation. 

Part 6 This is a new addition to the handbook and reflects the worldwide interest in high temperature superconductivity (HTS). The background to development at 4K is Introduction 3 covered followed by a description of materials, conductor fabrication, superconducting cables and their economics; the emphasis is on practical applications in power engineering. 

Part 7 This is a new addition and describes the application of optical fibres in power transmission systems. It begins with the principles of optical fibre transmission and then describes the various methods of incorporating fibres into long span power lines. 

Part 8 This part brings up to date the chapter on data communication cables from the previous handbook and includes a chapter on metallic telephone cables. Appendices As this edition continues to serve as both a reference book and a handbook the substantial list of appendices has been retained. Much of the tabular data presented provides information on the range of cables (and their properties) available in the most widely used fields. Those engineers dealing with cables on a regular basis will have manufacturers’ catalogues available which give other more detailed information.
