Different types of cable insulators

Insulators: Insulator is one kind of material that prevents the flow of electric current and can be used to support of electrical conductor. The main function of an insulator is to separate the line conductors from the pole and the tower. Normally the conductor of overhead transmission and distribution line are secured by means of insulator. It used to prevent Read More …

What are electrical cables and its types?

What is electrical cable? The conductor which is normally insulated by insulating material is known as cable. Generally cable is used for transmission and distribution of electric power by under the ground system. Underground cables are used to transmission and distribution of electric power, where it becomes impracticable to make use of overhead construction. Such location is may be congested Read More …
