COMPANY
PROFILE

Silvassa Plant

Mysore Plant

Thane Plant

RPG Cables, a division of KEC International Limited has established itself as


one of the leading manufacturers of Power, Control & Telecommunication
cables in India. One of the oldest cable manufacturing company (1958), we
have been serving the industries with quality cables for over 5 decades. The
state-of-the art manufacturing plants are located at Thane for HT cables
upto 33 kV and EHV cables upto 132 kV and Silvassa for LT cables upto 1.1
kV (power and control). The manufacturing facility at Mysore manufactures
LT Power and Control Cables, apart from Telecom Cables (Fiber Optic & Jelly
Filled), Instrumentation, Fire Survival and Signaling Cables. RPG Cables also
offers expertise in Turnkey contracts involving cable laying, jointing, testing
and commissioning. To keep pace with the changing needs of the customers
and requirement of cables for voltage grades above 132 kV, the company is
coming up with a new manufacturing unit near Halol, Gujarat with capability
to manufacture cables up to 400 kV. The brand name Asian is synonymous
with stringent norms in quality, environment and safety management. The
plants have been ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 certied.
RPG cables has been making major export thrust in keeping with its global
aspirations. We match international quality standards and cables can be
designed to comply with required international standards. The division
has also been given recognition by the Govt. of Maharashtra for achieving
excellence in Exports.

Insulation

Stranded compacted circular conductors are composed of


Electrolytic grade high conductivity Aluminium wires or Copper,
Circular, stranded with high compactness.

The insulation is of natural, chemically cross linked polyethylene


with high di-electric strength is extruded over semiconducting
conductor screening. Thickness of insulation is as per the
relevant tables.

Conductor Screening / Shielding


Conductors for cables rated above 3.3 kV are screened with an
extruded layer of semiconducting compound . This eliminates
the chance of electrical discharge at the interface between
conductor and insulation.

Insulation screening
Cables rated above 3.3 kV will have a screening consisting
of non metallic part, in combination with a metallic part over
the insulation. The non-metallic part of the screening consists

of either a semiconducting tape applied helically or a layer of


extruded semi-conducting compound or both. The conductor
screening, XLPE insulation and the non-metallic part of
insulation screening are all extruded in one operation by
TRIPLE EXTRUSION which eliminates the formation of micro
voids during the extrusion and curing resulting in longer life
of cables.
Over this layer a bare annealed copper tape / copper wire
is applied.

Laying up
Insulated conductors of three cores are laid up together,
interstices lled up with non hygroscopic llers to make the
cable circular.
The phase identication of three core cable is done either
by coloured / numbered strips applied on the cores or by the
numerals printed on the cores.

Inner Sheath
The cable cores are provided with a common covering of
wrapped plastic tapes or by an extruded PVC sheath or
pressure extruded PVC sheath, as per the requirement of the
customer.

Armouring
GI Round wire / Flat strip / Double steel tape armouring is
applied over the inner sheath in case of three core cables. The
direction of lay of armouring is opposite to that of cores.
For single core cables non magnetic Aluminium armouring is
applied over non metallic part of insulation screening or over
the inner sheath.

Outer sheath
The cables are provided with an extruded PVC / PE TYPE
ST7 / LSZH outer sheath over the armour. For Single core
unarmoured cables the outer sheath is extruded over the non
magnetic metallic part of insulation screening. Outer sheath
is generally of Black colour, but any colour as per customer
requirement can be provided.

1) Continuous current carrying capacity is an important


factor for the selection of the optimum size of conductor
in a cable. The current ratings given in Tables 2 to 25 are
on the following standard installation conditions:
1.

1.5 K.m/W

3. Ground Temprature

30C

4. Ambient Air Temprature

40C

6.

A = nominal area of conductor ( mm )


t = duration of short circuit (sec)

Depth of Laying - to the highest point of cables


laid direct or to top surface of ducts, is taken to be
as follows:
a) 3.3, 6.6 and 11 kV cables

900 mm

b) 22 and 33 kV cables

1050 mm

Method of Installation :
a) Single core cables:

Three core cables


in trefoil touching

b) Three core cables

Installed single

The conductor size in a cable for an installation is also


governed by its ability to carry short circuit current of
the system.
Short circuit rating are based on the assumption that the
duration of short circuit is so small and apparently there
is no transmission of heat, produced during short circuit,
through the insulation and the whole of it is absorbed by
the conductor.
The short circuit current ratings (r.m.s. values) of XLPE
insulated cables with aluminium / copper conductors for
one second duration are given in table 1. These ratings
have been calculated on the following assumptions.
Parametres

Aluminium

1. Conductor temprature

2. Maximum permissible

3. Specic gravity of

With the above assumptions, the maximum short circuit


current is calculated with the following formula.

4) Rating Factors
In actual practice, conditions of installation may be
different from the standard installation conditions given
above. Hence to determine the continuous current rating
for the actual conditions, the tabulated current ratings
should be multiplied by the appropriate ratings factors or
factors given in Tables 26 to 40-c.
