This paper discusses the results of a basic study for the development of High Voltage (HV) XLPE cables. The authors have studied effects of changing basic construction of HV cables in order to improve design and material consumption of HV cables and studying these changes effect on the quality of manufactured HV cables. Studying of XLPE material’s properties, such as minimum insulation breakdown stress, PD level, electric fields change and etc. to set the proper design values for HV cable designing. Electrical field study for this paper has done with ANSYS software.
