Continuously supplying electrical power of high quality level to users in the heart of populated urban areas is one of the challenges for insulated power cables. This equipment of high technology will be in the focus of the discussions at the
9th international conference on insulated power cables Jicable'15, which will be held in
Versailles close to Paris, France, from 21 to 25 June 2015.
What is Jicable'15 ?
Jicable'15 is the leading worldwide forum held about every four years since 1984 which convene the worldwide community concerned with the research, the industrial development, the installation, the exploitation and the diagnosis of the AC & DC insulated power cables and their accessories. More than 360 communications from 1000 authors affiliated to more than 250 different organizations will be presented and an exhibition will bring together the principal actors in this field at the same site. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Jicable’15 promises to be a great conference event.
Why Jicable'15 ?
Insulated power cables are increasingly used in electrical power transmission and distribution networks. This is due to the significant progress achieved in the development of new technologies with higher performances and motivated by increasing environmental pressure. Cables are recognised as the most reliable means for the transmission and distribution of electrical energy.
Jicable'15 will allow in-depth analysis of the State-of-the-Art and future perspectives : new materials, evolution in technologies, manufacturing process, maintenance policies and condition assessment, upgrading, refurbishment, lessons learnt from service, dielectric phenomena, thermal and thermo-mechanical behaviour…new innovative technical solutions for high power transmission: new superconductive materials as well as a closer look at major long distance submarine cable projects connecting High Voltage networks in many countries.
Who takes part in Jicable'15 ?
Researchers, engineers, decision makers, raw materials suppliers, cable manufacturers, consultants, installers and users will exchange their views and expectations through a wide-ranging debate which follows the eight preceding conferences. More than 700 participants from fifty countries are expected at Jicable'15.
