Electric Power Cables and Their Utility Electricity is the utmost essential element in the world since almost a century now. Electricity has become a part and parcel of everyones life and so are the devices that work with it. The most important part of electric power transmission are the electric power cables which facilitate appropriate distribution of power from the systems to varied appliances that we use. Although most of us know what electric power cables are and how they transmit power when connected to devices it is definitely also important to understand how they work and what they comprise of to perform the best so as to remain safe and also attempt to analyze faults at any given time.

Electric power cables comprise of a bunch of electric wires or optical fibers technically wrapped in a sheath. Power cables are built according to the task they are intended to perform. For instance the environmental conditions where they would be placed voltage of power that would be passed through them and the capacity of current that they can carry based on these aspects a power cables material is chosen and the product is designed and constructed. Sometimes when power cables are to be used in very harsh environmental conditions the power cables are made with durable materials like steel or aluminum respectively. An electric power cable comprises of the following components and they are:  Stranded copper conductor  PVC inner sheath  Semi conductive screen layer  Insulator  Filler and tape  Copper tape screen layer  Stainless steel wire armor Now lets look into the major advantages of using electric power cables:  Power cables maximize the temperature of the conductor and thereby help in easy power transmission.

 Power cables are best known for holding out against the chemical attacks from the surroundings.  Power cables are fire temperature and extreme environment conditions resistant.  Power cables are made in such a way that they can be used rough and tough and to last long.  Power cables can easily be installed in just a narrow piece of land.  Power cables hardly need any repairs or maintenance.  Power cables are best in cutting down any possible transmission losses. Alongside these exceptional features power cables also come in a spectrum of varieties:  Telecommunication cables  PVC cables  Rubber cables  Structural or LAN cables  Electrical power cables  Coaxial cables  Fibre optical cables  Solar cables  XLPE cables  Submersible cables

 Control cables  PVC cables  Industrial cables  Instrumentation shielded cables Electric power cables in India are manufactured and exported by various firms that have certain specifications for maintaining superior quality and they actually follow quality-assurance protocols so as to deliver excellent products to the local industries and to those located in other nations. In the recent years the power cables industry has taken giant strides creating better business prospects for manufacturers and exporters who could leave a good remark in the international power cable market.
