pof_future_cables_20_10_04kv {CNAIM} R Documentation

## Future Probability of Failure for 20/10/0.4kV cables

### Description

This function calculates the future annual probability of failure per kilometer for a 20/10/0.4kV cable. 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_future_cables_20_10_04kv(
hv_lv_cable_type = "10-20kV cable, PEX",
sub_division = "Aluminium sheath - Aluminium conductor",
utilisation_pct = "Default",
operating_voltage_pct = "Default",
sheath_test = "Default",
partial_discharge = "Default",
fault_hist = "Default",
reliability_factor = "Default",
age,
simulation_end_year = 100
)

### Arguments

 hv_lv_cable_type String. A sting that refers to the specific asset category. Options: hv_lv_cable_type = c("10-20kV cable, PEX","10-20kV cable, APB", "0.4kV cable"). The default setting is hv_lv_cable_type = "10-20kV cable, PEX". 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). 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. simulation_end_year Numeric. The last year of simulating probability of failure. Default is 100.

### Value

Numeric array. Future probability of failure per annum for 33-66kV cables.
