Underground Power Cable – Predictive Maintenance Through AI, ML, DL

In this one-hour webinar you will learn how IMCORP uses AI, ML & DL algorithms to risk categorize partial discharge sites from its over 240,000 cable assessments to enable remaining useful life and in turn predictive and proactive maintenance programs for Utility asset managers.

Underground Power Cable Defects and Failures- What We Learn From Root Cause Analysis

In this one-hour webinar you will learn the importance of Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and the process used by IMCORP to perform an RCA. Our subject matter experts will walk you through the many types of defects that can be discovered, and lessons learned.

Underground Power Cable Meets the Real World-Maximizing Full Lifecycle Reliability

Request Webinar Access

In this one-hour webinar you will learn from industry experts how the handling of underground cables and cable accessories can have an impact on the life cycle of the cable. Discuss the pros and cons of the many different field-testing methodologies and the impact that the different methodologies can have on your cable systems. We will also share IMCORP case studies from assessments of both new and aged cable systems.

 

Extruded Underground Power Cable: Primer on Cable Construction & Quality Control Standards

Request Webinar Access

In this one-hour webinar you will learn about effective design, construction, quality control and industry standards of underground electric distribution systems. Industry experts will discuss failure modes, including partial discharge (PD), how it impacts the cable system and effective ways to measure PD in the field.

Power Cable Systems/Renewables Best Practices Webinar

Request Webinar Access

IMCORP is hosting a renewable power system reliability panel webinar, “Power Cable Systems/Renewables Best Practices“. IMCORP has assembled a panel of experts to delve into steps that could be taken in order to reduce the millions of dollars lost annually due to unplanned power cable system outages. Our experts will discuss preventive best practices in addition to product and system qualifications. This is a live webinar that includes a Q&A session at the end and all questions are welcome.

IMCORP Presents: Balance of Plant Best Practices

Renewable market has spent an inordinate amount of time focusing on turbines and solar arrays. Certainly, these are critical components of the infrastructure. Our panel will be turning up the lights on the balance of plant. Panelists will be presenting their best practices ranging from the initial design, through construction and maintenance. As you can see by the panelists’ titles, they represent many of the disciplines from day one to the end of plant life. Their willingness to share these practices with industry peers is all about giving back to the renewable community. 

Predictive Maintenance of Electric Utility Assets Using Artificial Intelligence

Request Webinar Access

Electric Utility assets, such as underground cables, are considered critical equipment within any power system and are typically one of the most expensive components of the system to repair. When they fail, the customer impact is immense and has the potential to cause severe collateral damage or worse, public safety concerns. Replacing underground cables can be very expensive and time-consuming and can take months or even years when associated with significant design, civil, and construction work. According to IEEE, 90% of all underground cable systems fail due to a breakdown of the component’s insulation.

In this webinar, we will explain how AI methodologies are used to help with predicting outages, providing maintenance prioritization, and eventually providing remaining useful life considerations.

Cable System Reliability and Longevity

Request Webinar Access


Cables are one of the largest power system assets and although performance challenges have been widely discussed, the reasons for long life or premature failure are often misunderstood. Drawing on a database and knowledge learned after testing hundreds of thousands of cable systems and performing thousands of dissections, your instructor will provide an introductory overview of lessons learned in the subject areas of design, construction, operation, and maintenance of underground electric distribution and transmission systems.
