On the specificities of Medium Voltage
cable systems for DC applications


The present paper deals with some of the specificities of DC stresses applied to medium voltage cable systems and highlights the need to take into consideration the influence on the insulation system of leakage current, space charges and specific transients during the development and qualifications stages. Further, it discusses the relevance of system approach vs component approach in the qualification of MVDC cables and accessories.
