Testing experiences on extruded cable systems up to 525kVdc in the first third party worldwide laboratory
The booming of renewable power stations (solar and wind mill mainly), the increase use of Interconnectors and submarine cables, the construction of urban substations in big cities with intense population and the need to avoid the use the overhead lines (right of way and so on), are the main factors leading to the increasing amount […]

The Resiliency Continuum
Storm damage can wreak havoc on the electrical distribution system and instantaneously create a major impact on those who continuously depend on unfettered access to electrical energy. “Keeping the lights on” is a bedrock principle of utility operations, but is increasingly being challenged by more frequent and turbulent natural disasters. The quest for greater utility […]

Valutazione del Ciclo di Vita (LCA) di sistemi della Rete Elettrica di Trasmissione: prime indicazioni in termini di Global Warming
L’articolo ha lo scopo di illustrare in forma sintetica il lavoro sin qui svolto da Terna in collaborazione con CESI per la valutazione del ciclo di vita (LCA) di componenti o sistemi della Rete Elettrica di Trasmissione. In particolare vengono sviluppate prime indicazioni sull’impatto Global Warming (GW).​​

Issues related to spark discharges
In the general public environment, ambient power-frequency electric fields are relatively small, except when near high-voltage (HV) transmission lines. Electric fields from aerial HV transmission lines are greatest directly under the conductors and decrease with. In occupational environments, elevated electric fields also exist in HV substations/switchyards, and in particular under busbars/equipment. Other sources of power-frequency […]
