About this training


1.1 General
This document specifies performance requirements for type tests for transition joints for use between extruded insulated power cables as specified in HD 620 and impregnated paper insulated power cables as specified in HD 621 or another relevant standard.
Once type test for an accessory is successfully completed, it is not necessary to repeat the test, unless changes are made in the materials, design or manufacturing process, which might affect the performance characteristics.
Possible extra thermo-mechanical forces due to high current loads from renewable sources of power generation are not covered by these tests (under consideration).
Accessories for special applications such as submarine cables, ships cables or hazardous situations (explosive environments, fire resistant cables or seismic conditions) are not included.
Test methods are included in EN IEC 61442:- and Annex E.
NOTE 1 This document does not invalidate existing approvals of products achieved on the basis of national standards and specifications and/ or the demonstration of satisfactory service performance. However, products approved according to such national standards or specifications cannot directly claim approval to this document.
NOTE 2 It might be possible, subject to agreement between supplier and purchaser, and/ or the relevant conformity assessment body, to demonstrate that conformity to the earlier standard can be used to claim conformity to this document, provided an assessment is made of any additional type testing that might need to be carried out. Any such additional testing that is part of a sequence of testing cannot be done separately.
1.2 Type of accessories
The accessories covered by this document are straight and branch transition joints of all designs, suitable for use underground or in air.
1.3 Rated voltage
The rated voltages U0/ U (Um) of the accessories covered by this document are 3,6/ 6(7,2) - 3,8/ 6,6(7,2) - 6/ 10(12) - 6,35/ 11(12) - 8,7/ 15(17,5) - 12/ 20(24) - 12,7/ 22(24) - 18/ 30(36) - 19/ 33(36) - 20,8/ 36(42) kV.
