    Description

    MOBILE CABLE TEST AND FAULT LOCATION SYSTEM

    Mobile systems SWG-12 and SWG-32 are designed for the following applications:

    • testing insulation of power cables with DC voltage up to 32 kV;
    • conditioning faults by burning faulty cable insulation with DC current up to 100 mA at up to 32 kV voltage;
    • pre-locating cable faults with an aid of the reflectometer RIF-9 using a low-voltage pulse reflection method (TDR) and high-voltage methods: voltage wave oscillation (DECAY), impulse current envelope (ICE), and arc reflection (ARC / ARC multi‑shot);
    • pinpointing cable faults with an acoustic method with up to 2000 J surge wave generator and a suitable signal receiver.

    CABLE FAULT LOCATION MADE COMPACT

    Under a single compact system SWG embodies all the main components of a fully-featured cable test van: a digital pulse reflectometer, a high-voltage step-up test transformer, a powerful surge wave generator and a burn unit.

    Rich functionality along with small dimensions and durable design allows using SWG for most cable fault location tasks where a cable test van would traditionally have been utilised. In addition, the system can be used for withstand testing solid insulation with DC voltage up to 32 kV (for SWG-12 – 12 kV).

    SWG-series systems can therefore be considered as an uncompromising solution for high-quality cable maintenance – these compact and mobile units provide the full range of functionality and feature safety functions commonly available only on fully-featured van-mounted cable test and fault location systems.

    HIGH SURGE ENERGY

    For pinpointing cable faults with the acoustic method, SWG comes equipped with a surge wave generator with the surge energy up to 2000 J (for SWG-12 – 1100 J).

    High surge energy contributes to a successful fault pinpointing by providing a powerful signal in the conditions of high background noise, deep cable burial, or distant fault location.

    DETACHABLE REFLECTOMETER

    SWG systems are supplied with the digital pulse reflectometer RIF-9 which is used for pre-locating faults with the following methods:

    Low-voltage method (stand-alone mode)

    • TDR (time-domain reflectometry): low-resistance faults and breaks.

    High-voltage methods (RIF-9 + high voltage source)

    • ARC/ARC multi-shot (single impulse / multiple impulse arc reflection method): high-resistance and unstable faults.
    • ICE (impulse current envelope method): high-resistance faults that cannot be converted to low-resistance ones by burning faulty insulation.
    • DECAY (voltage wave oscillation method): faults with high breakdown voltage.

    Detachable design makes it possible to pre-locate cable faults with the TDR method using the reflectometer separately from the SWG system.

    BUILT-IN BURN UNIT

    All SWG systems include a built-in burn unit with continuous output voltage adjustment.

    Burn unit is used for fault conditioning by permanently destroying cable insulation in the point of a fault, making it possible to subsequently use fault pre-location methods.

    SURGE WAVE GENERATOR WITH A VOLTAGE LEVELS SWITCH

    For an accurate cable fault pinpointing, SWG systems are equipped with a powerful surge wave generator.

    The range of the generator output voltage adjustment is set using a tri-position voltage levels switch: 0 … 8 / 16 / 32 kV (for SWG-12 – 0 … 3 / 6 / 12 kV), which ensures a maximum surge energy in the entire operating range.

    MOBILITY

    The system is built in the form of a trolley with a detachable reflectometer affixed on the top.

    All the power supply, earthing and high-voltage cables are conveniently stowed on the holders on the rear panel.

    Ergonomic arrangement of controls, informative display of the reflectometer, and large trolley wheels provide operating convenience in the field conditions.

    SAFETY

    Operator safety is assured by both modern and traditional protective means provided by the SWG system.
