Current Probability of Failure for 33-66kV cables

Description

This function calculates the current annual probability of failure per kilometer for a 33-66kV cables. The function is a cubic curve that is based on the first three terms of the Taylor series for an exponential function. For more information about the probability of failure function see section 6 on page 30 in CNAIM (2017).

Usage

pof_cables_66_33kv(
  cable_type = "66kV UG Cable (Gas)",
  sub_division = "Aluminium sheath - Aluminium conductor",
  utilisation_pct = "Default",
  operating_voltage_pct = "Default",
  sheath_test = "Default",
  partial_discharge = "Default",
  fault_hist = "Default",
  leakage = "Default",
  reliability_factor = "Default",
  age
)

Arguments

cable_type

String. A sting that refers to the specific asset category. See See page 15, table 1 in CNAIM (2017). Options: cable_type = c("33kV UG Cable (Gas)", "66kV UG Cable (Gas)", "33kV UG Cable (Non Pressurised)", "66kV UG Cable (Non Pressurised)", "33kV UG Cable (Oil)", "66kV UG Cable (Oil)") . The default setting is cable_type = "66kV UG Cable (Gas)".

sub_division

String. Refers to material the sheath and conductor is made of. Options: sub_division = c("Aluminium sheath - Aluminium conductor", "Aluminium sheath - Copper conductor", "Lead sheath - Aluminium conductor", "Lead sheath - Copper conductor")

utilisation_pct

Numeric. The max percentage of utilisation under normal operating conditions.

operating_voltage_pct

Numeric. The ratio in percent of operating/design voltage.

sheath_test

String. Only applied for non pressurised cables. Indicating the state of the sheath. Options: sheath_test = c("Pass", "Failed Minor", "Failed Major", "Default"). See page 141, table 168 in CNAIM (2017).

partial_discharge

String. Only applied for non pressurised cables. Indicating the level of partial discharge. Options: partial_discharge = c("Low", "Medium", "High", "Default"). See page 141, table 169 in CNAIM (2017).

fault_hist

Numeric. Only applied for non pressurised cables. The calculated fault rate for the cable in the period per kilometer. A setting of "No historic faults recorded" indicates no fault. See page 141, table 170 in CNAIM (2017).

leakage

String. Only applied for oil and gas pressurised cables. Options: leakage = c("No (or very low) historic leakage recorded", "Low/ moderate", "High", "Very High", "Default"). See page 142, table 171 (oil) and 172 (gas) in CNAIM (2017).

reliability_factor

Numeric. reliability_factor shall have a value between 0.6 and 1.5. A setting of "Default" sets the reliability_factor to 1. See section 6.14 on page 69 in CNAIM (2017).

age

Numeric. The current age in years of the cable.

Value

Numeric. Current probability of failure per annum per kilometre for 20/10/0.4kV cables.
