How to find the fault point after the ACSR cable is short-circuited?

Generally speaking, when the ACSR conductor has a short-circuit fault, the air switch cannot be closed, which will not only cause a small-scale power failure, but if it is not handled properly, it may sometimes expand the scope of the fault and even cause an electric shock accident. Therefore, if the short-circuit fault is not eliminated, illegal power transmission is absolutely not allowed.

When dealing with a short-circuit fault of a cable, try not to break the cable destructively. In that case, it will damage the cable insulation, reduce the insulation strength of the cable, and cause electric shock. So, how to find the short-circuit point quickly and effectively when the cable has a short-circuit fault?



The main methods are as follows:

1. The place where the cable has a connector is the frequent occurrence point of cable short-circuit faults. When searching, the main search object is the cable connector.


2. If ASTM 477 MCM ACSR Cable is erected for a long distance, and there is a short circuit in the middle or at the end of the cable, the tripping time of the air switch may be delayed. This is because the short-circuit point is far from the air switch and there are A certain resistance value reduces the short-circuit current. If this is the case, the section of cable from the short-circuit point to the circuit breaker will definitely heat up and be higher than the temperature of the human body, and the rubber sheath will become soft or even bulge. At this time, touch the hot cable with your hand until it suddenly becomes cold. The place where you feel the cable hot is the short-circuit point.

3. If it is a two-core lighting cable, the light bulb from the short-circuit point to the power circuit breaker will emit light, but due to insufficient voltage, the light will be dim, and the light bulb after the short-circuit point will not light up at all.
