Why terminations for 10 kV are divided into two types: designed for cables with paper insulation and cables for XLPE insulation, but terminations for 1 kV are not divided into these two types?


Terminations for 10 kV are divided into these two types because these two cables have a different system of shielding, grading of the electrical field, earthling and restoring of insulation. Cables for 1 kV do not have that many and dramatic differences, that is why they both can be insulated with termination for 1 kV. Termination for 1 kV can also be used for a cable with PVC insulation.
