General Construction
Conductors

The conductors of power cables are normally made from electrical purity aluminium and those of control cable

Normally, aluminium conductors up to size 10 sq.mm are solid, circular in cross section, and sizes above 10 sq
Insulation

The conductors are insulated with PVC base compound. Cables with heat resistant insulation are also availabl

Core Identification
Cores are identified by colour scheme of PVC insulation. The following colour scheme is adopted.
1 core - Red, Black, Yellow, Blue or Natural (non-pigmented)
2 core - Red and Black
3 core - Red, Yellow and Blue
4 core - Red, Yellow, Blue and Black (also 3 Core) (Reduced neutral core is black)
5 core - Red, Yellow, Blue, Black and Grey
For cables having more than 5 cores : Two adjacent cores (counting and directional) in each layer are colored
Inner Sheath

For all cables having two or more cores, a common covering (inner sheath) is applied over the laid up cores ei

For multi core cables, armouring is applied over the inner sheath. In case of cables where fictitious diameter ov

Outer sheath is extruded over the armouring. In case of multi core unarmoured cables, over the inner sheath, w
Type Designation
Type designation of cables is based on the following alphabetical nomenclature.

A - Aluminium conductors - when first letter of type designation does not contain 'A' in the beginning, then cabl
Y - When at first or second place in type designation, it stands for PVC insulation.
CE - Individual core screening
W - Round steel wire armouring
F - Flat steel wire (strip) armouring
Gb - Steel tape counter helix
Y - When last in type designation, it stands for PVC outer sheath.
WW - Steel double round wire armour
FF - Steel double strip armour.

Conductor Types
re - Circular, solid conductor
rm - Circular, stranded conductor (non-compacted)
rm/v - Circular, stranded compacted conductor
sm - Sector shaped, stranded conductor.
Number of cores, conductor cross section, voltage grade are written in the usual manner. For example,

AYFY 3 x 400 sm 650/1100 V :- Aluminium conductor, PVC insulated, flat steel wire (Strip) armoured, PVC ove

YY 37 x 1.5 re 650/1100 V :- Copper conductor, PVC insulated and PVC sheathed (unarmoured) 37 core cable
Current Ratings [based on IS 3961 (Part 2)]

The current ratings of cables given in the above tables are based on the normal conditions of installation descr
Maximum conductor temperature

70 C (for normal PVC)

Ambient air temperature

40 C

Ground temperature

30 C

Depth of laying (for cables laid direct in ground)


Thermal resistivity of soil

75 cm (1.1 kV), 90 cm (3.3 to 11 kV)

The above Current Rating is based on following Operating Conditions :


Maximum continous operating conductor temperature = 90C
Standard ground temperature = 30C
Ambient air temperature = 40C
Thermal Resistivity of soil = 150C cm/watt
Depth of laying (for cables laid direct in ground) = 90 cms for cables upto 11kV (E) or (UE) grade and 105 cms
Method of Installation:
Three core cables install independently.
Single Core Cables: Three cables in a trefoil touching each other
