Abstract

To obtain confirmation that many installed electrical cables do not need to be replaced in the context of nuclear plant extension programs can be of very large economic significance. A structured approach to assessing cable condition and determining the potential remaining life of electrical cables is proposed. The approach is based on testing retrieved cable insulation/jacket from operating or decommissioned plants.”
