Tips on storing wires and cables
Tips on storing wires and cables
There are many types of wire and cable products, and their application range is very wide. If they are not stored properly, it will affect the life and safety of the cables, and even cause unnecessary disasters. Therefore, how to store them is an issue that needs attention. 1. When storing wires and cables, avoid water sources, and do not contact acids, alkalis and mineral oils. The outer skin of the wires is mostly plastic. Contact with corrosive liquids will cause the outer skin of the wires to swell, accelerate the damage of the outer skin and cause leakage, which is very dangerous. 2. Wires and cables cannot be exposed to the sun or in an ultra-high temperature environment for a long time, otherwise it will cause cracks or peeling on the outer sheath of the cable. 3. In the environment where wires and cables are stored, it is strictly forbidden to have gases that are harmful to cables, such as corrosive gases and flammable and explosive gases. 4. Wires and cables should be stored regularly, according to specifications and production time. The storage period is limited to the product's factory date, and generally should not exceed one and a half years. 5. Long-term storage of wires and cables will be affected by extrusion pressure, which may cause deformation of the sheath and cable. The cables should be rolled regularly. After rolling, the cables should be checked to see if they are intact to avoid damage that affects subsequent safe use. (Cable reels are not allowed to be laid flat) 6. The transportation of wires and cables is also the key to the storage and protection of wires. It is strictly forbidden to throw cable reels from high places during transportation, which may cause cracks in insulation and sheath, and damage the conductivity and mechanical properties of the cables.

Why do we need to analyze the impurity elements of aluminum alloys for wires and cables?
Why do we need to analyze the impurity elements of aluminum alloys for wires and cables?
In the wire and cable manufacturing industry, aluminum rods, aluminum alloy wires, aluminum alloy strips, profiles, etc. for electrical use are also important materials. One of the important testing items for conductive aluminum alloys is chemical composition analysis. In addition to determining the grade of aluminum alloys, another important purpose of composition analysis is to determine the content of impurity elements.   The reason why we need to analyze the impurity elements of conductive aluminum alloys is that the manufacturing process of aluminum alloys is to add a certain proportion of alloying elements to pure aluminum. These added alloying elements are usually trace elements, especially the percentage of trace elements added to conductive aluminum alloys. The mass fraction is generally not more than 1.0%. The trace alloying elements we commonly add are Cu, Mg, Fe, B, Zr and other elements, but Zr, Cr, V, Mn, Li and Ti have a serious impact on the resistivity of aluminum alloy conductor materials. Therefore, we must strictly control the content of Zr, Cr, V, Mn, Li 7 and Ti in aluminum alloy conductor materials. Reduce the harmful effects of impurity elements on the conductivity of aluminum alloys.

How can we use Twin&Earth Cable?
How can we use Twin&Earth Cable?
Twin and earth (often written "T&E" and sometimes "T and E") cable is a type of 300/500V flat sheathed electricity cable, containing two insulated current-carrying conductors and and a Circuit Protective Conductor (CPC = PE = Earth). In Australia and New Zealand this type of cable is referred to as 'Flat TPS' (Thermo-plastic sheathed), as well as "Twin and Earth" or "Twin with Earth". It is commonly used for fixed wiring in domestic and commercial premises. It is not intended to be used where it is subject to regular movement or sunlight, because the sheathing is affected by ultraviolet radiation.. It is suitable for laying in conduit or trunking where mechanical protection is required. Twin and Earth cable is a general fixed wiring and lighting cable, containing three conductors.   Minimum bending radius: Diameter up to 10mm - 3 x overall diameter Diameter 10mm to 25mm - 4 x overall diameter (Based upon the larger dimensions)   The disadvantages of twin and earth cable? It is not suitable for overhead catenary use. Twin and Earth cable is normally made with PVC sheathing and insulation, which has an almost indefinite life in the right conditions. However UV light will cause it to fail, so Twin and Earth is not suitable for use outdoors.It can also be made with low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) outer sheathing   Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., Ltd is professional manufacturer of various building wire, electrical cable, twin earth cable.

Why use TR-XLPE insulated cable?
Why use TR-XLPE insulated cable?
Medium voltage power cables mostly use cross-linked polyethylene insulation. Ordinary cross-linked polyethylene insulation cables are damaged by mechanical stress or external forces during installation and operation, or the cables are operated for a long time in a humid and watery environment, which can cause external moisture to penetrate into the interior of the cables. The chance of forming water trees under the action of the electric field is greatly increased, and water trees are transformed into permanent electrical trees under the action of the electric field, Causing insulation breakdown in a relatively short period of time. Once the outer protective layer of the cable is damaged, water ingress into the cable can cause corrosion of the steel strip and copper strip, decrease the insulation performance, and greatly shorten the service life of the cable. Therefore, the industry recommends using water resistant cross-linked polyethylene cables.

Different types of armored cable
Different types of armored cable
Armored cables are made of conductors of different materials installed in metal casings with insulating materials, and are processed into a flexible and solid assembly. The mechanical protective layer of armored cables can increase the mechanical strength of the cable and improve its corrosion resistance. It is a cable designed for areas prone to mechanical damage and erosion. It can be laid in any way, and is more suitable for direct burial in rocky areas. Armored cables are also divided into steel tape armored cables and steel wire armored cables.   1. Purpose: Steel tape armor is only used for the laying of directly buried cables or ordinary pipes, ordinary ground, tunnels, etc. The thin steel wire armor can withstand general longitudinal tension, so it is suitable for short-distance overhead laying or vertical and vertical laying. Abroad, there are more steel wire armored cables!   2. Price: The corresponding steel wire armor is more expensive. Because steel wire armor is difficult to produce and the cost is high.   3. Current-carrying capacity: There is not much difference, but they must use countermagnetic steel strips or steel wires.   4. Depending on the use environment, choose different forms of armored cables: steel tape armor can withstand mechanical pressure, and steel wire armor can withstand mechanical tension.   Zhenglan Cable can do both types of armored cable. Welcome your inquiry.

Answer: (1) Easy to install because it allows a small minimum bending radius and is lightweight; (2) Not affected by line differences; (3) Good thermal performance, allowing high operating temperature and large transmission capacity; (4) The cable accessories are simple and all are dry structures; (5) Operation and maintenance are simple and there is no oil leakage problem; (6) The price is lower; (7) High reliability and low failure rate; (8) Few manufacturing steps, simple process, and significant economic benefits.   8. What are the requirements for clamps for fixing AC single-core cables? Why? Answer: The clamp should have no iron parts to form a closed magnetic circuit. This is because when the cable core passes current, magnetic lines of force are generated around it. The magnetic lines of force are proportional to the current passing through the core. If magnetically conductive materials such as iron parts are used, according to It can be seen from electromagnetic induction that eddy currents will be generated in the iron parts to cause the cable to heat up and even burn the cable. Therefore, iron parts cannot be used as fixed fixtures for single-core AC cables.   9. What are the biggest features and advantages of heat shrinkable cable head accessories? Answer: The biggest feature of heat shrink accessories is that they use stress tubes instead of traditional stress cones. It not only simplifies the construction process, but also reduces the size of the joint terminals. It is easy to install, saves time and labor, has superior performance, and saves metal. Heat-shrinkable cable accessories are both potted and dry-packed, combining the advantages of both types of accessories.   10. What inspections should be carried out before laying cables? Answer: (1) The brackets should be complete and the paint should be complete. (2) The cable model, voltage, and specifications comply with the design. (3) The cable insulation is good. When there is doubt about the sealing of oil-paper cables, moisture judgment should be made; directly buried cables and small bottom cables should pass the DC withstand voltage test; oil samples of oil-filled cables should pass the test. (4) The oil pressure of oil-filled cables should not be lower than 1.47MPa.

IEA: Global solar power overtakes coal power within four years
IEA: Global solar power overtakes coal power within four years
The International Energy Agency recently stated that by 2027, solar power generation is expected to surpass coal-fired power generation and become the main way of generating electricity. So, why is solar power likely to become the main force of new energy in the future? More than a decade ago, solar energy was insignificant in the global energy race, accounting for the smallest share of all major sources of electricity, less than 1%. But things have changed now, with the International Energy Agency (IEA) saying that within three years, solar will generate more electricity than natural gas. Within four years, by 2027, it could overtake coal as the dominant form of electricity generation. Solar electricity installation costs have dropped dramatically in recent years An important reason is that the installation cost of solar power has dropped significantly. Data show that for utility-scale solar energy, the average cost of construction and operation has continued to decline since 2009, and will only be about $36 per megawatt-hour by 2021, a drop of about 90% compared to 2009. The cost of coal has changed little, at about $108 per megawatt-hour in 2021. Bahar, an analyst for the International Energy Agency's renewable energy market, said that solar power is expected to account for almost 60% of new power installations in the next five years. Governments are increasingly paying attention to the development of renewable energy In addition, in recent years, governments of various countries have paid more and more attention to energy security, and have also introduced corresponding policies to support it. According to the EU plan, by 2025, its installed capacity of solar photovoltaic power generation will more than double that of 2020, reaching 320 GW, and by 2030 it will reach 600 GW. The U.S. Inflation Reduction Act is expected to allow solar developers to enjoy certain tax credits within 10 years to carry out long-term and large-scale construction.   Home solar power market has broad prospects Another point that cannot be ignored is that the construction scale of solar energy can be large or small. In addition to huge arrays, it can also be a single battery panel on the roof. Therefore, household solar power generation is also an important market. The CEO of a solar energy company in the United States mentioned in an interview with CNBC that the surge in demand for electric vehicles today may also drive the demand for household solar power generation in the future because it is convenient, cheap and reliable.

High performance cable should provide the best in durability, flexibility and shielding!
High performance cable should provide the best in durability, flexibility and shielding!
Cable manufacturers are constantly challenged with wider temperature ranges, more shielding functions and higher mechanical durability, as well as characteristics such as bending resistance and chemical resistance required for extremely harsh environments and increasingly complex applications. However, cable failures and system downtime still occur from time to time, why?   Cable Faults Many problems caused by cable faults, especially those operating in extreme and harsh environments, can be avoided if the cables are selected correctly from the outset. People might say that choosing a cable is easy, but is that really the case? Indeed, matching the correct temperature range and relying on a PVC jacket for protection is simple. However, there are far more issues to consider.   Engineers have many details to consider before finalizing a perfectly matched cable. Flex and flex cables require specific flex shields. When the shield is torn and continuity is lost, the choice of standard foil shielding can lead to system failure. The distinction between flexibility and bendability should be kept in mind. It is important that the cables be able to be bent and fitted, the flexible cables are easier to install and also simplifies fault detection in cabinets and cable trays.   When the cable is used to connect to the cabinet, the round cable provides a better seal than the typical spiral cable. Therefore, it is necessary to correctly select the degree of bending after considering the line. In some manufacturing applications, cables will be constantly being bent. Ability to withstand millions of bends is more complicated than flexibility. So, how to choose a curved cable? The first thing to consider is the type of bending, is it uniaxial, twisted, or multi-axial? Each type requires different characteristics of the cable.

What is the relationship between backbone cables, branch cables and distribution cables
What is the relationship between backbone cables, branch cables and distribution cables
1. Contact: The backbone cable refers to the cable directly connected to the power supply; the branch cable refers to the cable that comes out of the distribution box and connects to the user or each workshop; the distribution cable refers to the cable that is electrically connected to the distribution box. Their function is to act as a bridge chain connecting the telecommunications room to each user client.   2. Difference: The number of backbone cables and distribution cables cannot be similar. The backbone cable should be one or two, the branch cable needs more than two, and the distribution cable should be more. Branch cables are divided into vertical branches and Horizontal branch. For vertical branches, they are mainly applicable to high-rise buildings. Generally, they are measured on site and divided according to the drawing, that is, the cross sectional area of cables is selected according to the load of each floor, the cable model is selected according to the fire resistance rating of the project, and the cable length is selected according to the distance between the low-voltage distribution cabinet and the highest floor of the branch; For Horizontal branch cable, the line selection basis is the same as that for vertical branch, but the length of Horizontal branch cable can be larger than the trunk line, but its sectional area should be smaller than the trunk line section. It should be noted that the vertical main line should be higher than the three section levels of the branch line.

Characteristics of rubber sheathed cables: 1. incomparable softness of other wires and cables; 2. Good electrical insulation performance and chemical stability; 3. Good physical and mechanical properties and wear resistance; 4. Requirements for oil resistance, flame retardancy, cold resistance, and heat resistance. Choosing a cable that suits you has become a key issue. 1: Have a detailed understanding of the performance indicators of cables in various aspects, such as the wear resistance, compression resistance, and service life of rubber sheathed cables. Conduct a detailed inquiry and understanding, and then determine whether it meets your own usage conditions 2: The influence of the surrounding environment on the usage of cables. During the use of cables, in addition to being limited by their own usage conditions, there are also some external factors that play a decisive role. For example, if there is interference from magnetic fields, the cables need to be shielded; If it is a welding robot, due to the long working time and high temperature, it poses a great challenge to the outer sheath of the cable. Therefore, the selection should be based on the actual situation. 3: Clarify the use function of cables, whether it is control cables or rubber sheathed cables, no matter how excellent their performance is. What we need to do is to install the cables in positions suitable for their use. Only in this way can we achieve the original performance and service life of the cables.

The advantages for MDPE to be cable sheath
The advantages for MDPE to be cable sheath
MDPE has very high resistance to abrasion and it is extremely hard and has a low dielectric constant with superior oxidation resistance. The hardness of the MDPE cable sheathing protects the cable from sharp objects dropped or loaded onto the cable. This helps MDPE finds particular usage in transmission cables in the toughest of environments, notably those with the high ambient temperatures found in tropical and subtropical countries. But at these high ambient temperatures alternative sheathing materials such as PVC would be soft and prone to damage easily during laying of the cables.   Compared with LDPE (low density polyethylene), MDPE has significantly more strength enabling it to be pulled under heavy load for cabling applications; while compared to HDPE (high density polyethylene), HDPE has improved resistance to cracking.   Besides, various additives can be applied to MDPE compounds to improve fire retardant properties, UV and weathering resistance and the chemical degradation.

How to identify the advantages and disadvantages when purchasing wires?
How to identify the advantages and disadvantages when purchasing wires?
First of all, look at the color. The copper core is yellowish and reddish, indicating that the quality of the copper used is better, while the yellowish white is the reaction of low-quality copper. For aluminum core wires, regular ones must be shiny, shining silver-white light under the light, while those that are dark and look dark are of poor quality.   Secondly, bend the wire by hand to test its toughness. A good wire has good toughness and can be bent very well. Some unqualified wires are bent a few times and their insulation layer is broken, and some can even be peeled off by hand. Insulation. Then, it must be checked whether the length and the thickness of the wire core have been tampered with. According to the relevant standards, the error of the length of the wire cannot exceed 5%, and the diameter of the cross-section cannot exceed 0.02%. Short of two catties, the phenomenon of falsification on the cross-section.   Also intercept a section of insulation to see if its core is in the middle of the insulation. What is not centered is the phenomenon of core eccentricity caused by low craftsmanship. When using it, if the power is low, it will be safe. Once the amount is large, the thinner side is likely to be broken down.   Finally, we can also check whether the identification is complete. There should be the name of the cable factory, wire model, specification, cross-sectional area, length, rated voltage, date of manufacture, and the implemented certification number or certification mark. If these signs are incomplete or absent, consumers should be cautious when purchasing. .

What is the performance difference between steel tape armored cable and steel wire armored cable?
What is the performance difference between steel tape armored cable and steel wire armored cable?
The mechanical protective layer of armored cable can be added to the cable of any structure to increase the mechanical strength of the cable and improve the corrosion resistance. It is designed for the area prone to mechanical damage and corrosion. Armored cables are also divided into steel tape armored cables and steel wire armored cables. The main differences are: 1. Purpose: steel strip armor is only used for laying directly buried cables or ordinary pipes, ordinary ground, tunnels, etc. The thin steel wire armor can withstand the general longitudinal tension, so it is suitable for short distance overhead laying or vertical and vertical laying. In foreign countries, there are many steel wire armored cables! 2. Price: the corresponding steel wire armor is more expensive. Because the production of steel wire armor is difficult and the cost is high. 3. Current-carrying capacity: the difference is not big, but the diamagnetic steel strip or steel wire should be selected. 4. According to the different use environment, different types of armored cables are selected: steel strip armor can withstand mechanical pressure, and steel wire armor can withstand mechanical tension.

Small method to prevent overhead cable failure(1)
Small method to prevent overhead cable failure(1)
The commonly used methods of power cables and cables are mostly divided into underground direct burial or overhead. However, the small methods to prevent problems with overhead cables are as follows: 1. Do a good job of calculating the short-circuit current, correctly select and calibrate electrical equipment, and make the rated voltage of the electrical equipment consistent with the rated voltage of the line. 2. Correctly select the setting value of the relay protection and the rated current of the melt, and use a quick-break protection device to quickly cut off the short-circuit current when a short circuit occurs, reduce the duration of the short-circuit current, and reduce the losses caused by the short-circuit. 3. Install lightning rods in substations, and lightning arresters near transformers and on lines to reduce lightning damage. 4. Reactors are used to increase system impedance and limit short-circuit current.

Features for DC Cable and  AC cable
Features for DC Cable and AC cable
1. Different systems are used: DC cables are used in rectified DC transmission systems, and AC cables are often used in power frequency (domestic 50Hz) power systems. 2. Compared with AC cables, DC cables have less power loss during transmission. 3. High transmission efficiency and low line loss. 4. It is convenient to adjust the current and change the direction of power transmission. 5. Although the price of converter equipment is higher than that of transformers, the cost of using cable lines is much lower than that of AC cables. 6. The safety of DC cables is high: ①. The inherent characteristics of DC transmission make it difficult to generate induced current and leakage current, and will not cause electric field interference to other cables laid in the same way. ②. The single-core laying cable will not affect the transmission performance of the cable due to the hysteresis loss of the steel structure bridge. ③ Compared with DC cables with the same structure, it has higher current cut-off capability and over-interruption protection capability. ④. Apply the DC electric field and the AC electric field of the same voltage to the insulator, and the DC electric field is much safer than the AC electric field. 7. The installation and maintenance of the DC cable is simple and the cost is low. Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., Ltd supply cable according to your actual needs. Welcome your inquiry.

What is the function of inner and outer shielding of cable medium voltage and high voltage cables?
What is the function of inner and outer shielding of cable medium voltage and high voltage cables?
The so-called "shielding" on the cable structure is essentially a measure to improve the electric field distribution. The cable conductor is made up of multiple wires twisted, and it is easy to form an air gap between it and the insulating layer. The surface of the conductor is not smooth, which will cause the electric field to concentrate. Add a layer of shielding layer of semi-conductive material on the surface of the conductor, which has the same potential as the shielded conductor and is in good contact with the insulating layer, so as to avoid partial discharge between the conductor and the insulating layer. This layer of shielding is the inner shielding layer.   Also, there may be gaps at the contact between the insulating surface and the sheath, which is a factor that causes partial discharge. Therefore, a layer of semi-conductive material shielding layer is added on the surface of the insulating layer, which has good contact with the shielded insulating layer and is in contact with the metal sheath. Sheath equipotential, so as to avoid partial discharge between the insulation layer and the sheath, this layer of shielding is the outer shielding layer. For extruded insulated cables without metal sheath, in addition to the semi-conductive shielding layer, a metal shielding layer wrapped with copper tape or copper wire should be added. The function of this metal shielding layer is to pass capacitive current during normal operation; When the system is short-circuited, it acts as a channel for short-circuit current and also plays a role in shielding the electric field. It can be seen that if the outer semiconductor layer and copper shielding in the cable do not exist, the possibility of insulation breakdown between the core and the core of the three-core cable is very high.

Types and properties of common flame-retardant wires and cables
Types and properties of common flame-retardant wires and cables
1. Ordinary flame-retardant wires and cables The insulating and sheathing materials of ordinary flame-retardant wires and cables are generally polymer materials containing halogen (or modified by adding halogen containing flame retardant). Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is commonly used. Ordinary PVC resin has the characteristics of high electrical insulation, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, aging resistance and low price. However, when PVC burns, it will release hydrogen chloride, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, various aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated compounds and other toxic and harmful gases. 2. Low smoke halogen-free flame retardant wire and cable The insulation and sheath materials of low smoke and halogen-free flame-retardant wires and cables are mostly thermoplastic elastomer materials, which do not contain halogens such as fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine. Mercury, chromium, cadmium, lead and other heavy metal elements that pollute the environment are excluded from the production process. Polyamide is often used as the material. The flame-retardant mechanism of this cable is that of interrupt switching. Interrupted exchange flame retardant refers to taking away part of the heat generated during the combustion of flame retardant materials, so that the materials can not maintain the thermal decomposition temperature, and therefore can not continue to produce combustible gas, so the combustion is self extinguished.   Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., Ltd manufacture flame retardant wire, low smoke halogen-free flame retardanet wire, fire resistant wire, flame retardant and fire resistant wire.

Why Single core Armored Cable Should Use Non magnetic Materials?
Why Single core Armored Cable Should Use Non magnetic Materials?
When a single core cable is started or stopped by alternating current or direct current, a corresponding alternating magnetic field will be generated around the cable, and an induced current will be generated in the metal material. This current flows inside the metal material, much like a vortex of water, so it is called eddy current, or eddy current for short. The thermal effect of eddy current can heat the metal materials in a short time. If the heat cannot be emitted in time, it will cause the cable insulation layer to melt or accelerate the aging, and the insulation performance will be weakened, thus causing cable breakdown.   The armored steel strip has good magnetic conductivity, which can be magnetized under a small magnetic field and generate eddy current. Non magnetic materials such as stainless steel tape, copper tape, aluminum tape or non-magnetic metal wire shall be used for armouring of single core cables.   In addition, it is better to lay single core cables in finished form during construction. Single core cables should avoid magnetic materials as far as possible, such as iron pipes, iron clamps, etc., which can form closed loop magnetic materials.   In addition, for a three core cable, the alternating magnetic fields generated by the three core phase relationship cancel each other, so that the sum of the induced current vectors is 0, and no magnetic force lines pass through the armor. Therefore, steel tape armouring can be used.

Why solar cable adopts tinned copper conductor?
Why solar cable adopts tinned copper conductor?
Tinned copper wire has a silver appearance because tin is a silver metal. The process of tinned copper wire is a little more complicated than that of bare copper wire. At room temperature, tin is very stable in the air, because a dense oxide film will be formed on the surface of tin to prevent the continued oxidation of tin. Therefore, the copper surface is tinned, the first does not affect the resistance, and the second can improve the oxidation resistance of copper to a certain extent.   The purpose of tinning, silver plating (or even gold plating) for wire and cable conductors is to prevent copper wires from being oxidized and blackened at high temperature and humidity, and to improve conductor solderability and reliability. The operating environment of photovoltaic power plants is generally harsh, and they are often installed in deserts, barren mountains, water surfaces, roofs and other environments. It is required that the resistivity of photovoltaic cables must be good, not easy to oxidize, and can be used for a long time. Therefore, tinned copper wire is selected as the conductor will best fits the use environment and has the most stable electrical performance.   Zhenglan Cable supply power cable, solar cable, feel free to send us your quote.

A simple method for checking the quality of insulation layer of electric wire
A simple method for checking the quality of insulation layer of electric wire
The main function of the electric wire is not to spread the current to objects outside the target while conducting electricity, which is mainly the function of the insulating layer. Therefore, a good insulation layer is the best guarantee to avoid some risks caused by electricity consumption. The insulation layer is plastic, so we can try to test the plastic method to check the quality of the wire.       So it's easy. Just remember these steps:   1. Pull: If the quality of the insulating layer is poor, it will be easily deformed and cracked when pulling hard. Try to pull as much as possible. It is difficult to judge whether the quality of the insulating layer is good or bad. 2. Folding: Bend a small section of cable at will, if there is no break or white mark at the bend, the quality is good. 3. Ignite: Ignite the wire with fire, and light it with a lighter. If it does not catch fire when it is lit, it is a high-quality wire. It is a good flame retardant wire. If it is lit and emits thick black smoke, it will catch fire on its own after leaving the flame. Don't even think about it. You buy garbage and throw it into the trash can immediately. 4. No odor: It is fake and inferior wire that smells stinky, and the high-quality insulating layer will not have odor that suffocates the nose even if it is ignited.

Importance of power cable sheath
Importance of power cable sheath
Power cables are widely used to transmit and distribute electric energy. They are often used in urban underground power grids, outgoing lines of power stations, internal power supply of industrial and mining enterprises, and underwater transmission lines across rivers and seas. The main lines in the power system are generally power cables used to transmit and distribute high-power electric energy, including 1-500kv and above voltage levels. Therefore, the quality of cable products is very important, and the quality and thickness of cable sheath are equally important. What effect does the thickness of cable sheath have on the cable? 1. Affect the service life of power cables The first is the environment. After the construction of power cables, they are basically buried in the ground, immersed in water, in the open air or in an environment prone to corrosion, plus the corrosion of external media for a long time, the insulation level and mechanical level of the thinnest point of the cable sheath will decline. In case of line grounding fault, the thinnest point of cable sheath may be broken down, increasing the hidden danger of safety accidents. The other is the internal consumption of heat energy generated by cables. The cable will produce a lot of heat energy in the process of transmitting electric energy, which is a consumption of the sheath. If the thickness of the cable sheath is not enough, the copper core of the conductor will directly melt the sheath material after heating, which will cause circuit failures and other related safety problems. 2. Impact on Construction According to the current requirements, more and more environmental requirements require that the outer diameter of high-voltage cable products must be small, and it is necessary to consider leaving gaps in the laying process, so as to dissipate the heat generated by the cable after it is powered on. The thickness of the sheath is too thick, which will increase the difficulty of laying, so the thickness of the cable sheath must strictly comply with the relevant national standards, otherwise it cannot protect the cable conductor.

How to identify inferior cables(5)?
How to identify inferior cables(5)?
Precautions 1、 Observe the appearance of the wire. The insulation (sheath) layer of qualified products is soft, tough and flexible, and the surface layer is tight, smooth and free of roughness. If the plastic wrapping the wire is easy to peel off, there is a problem of insufficient plastic strength. 2、 It depends on the cross-section of the wire. The surface of copper core or aluminum core of qualified products should have metallic luster. Copper with black surface or aluminum with white surface indicates that it has been oxidized. 3、 Pay attention to check the quality certificate when purchasing wires. If the quality of the wire is qualified, the wire quality should also be tested, and there will be no big problem.

How to identify inferior cables(4)?
How to identify inferior cables(4)?
4. Wire and cable with unqualified conductor resistance Conductor resistance is an important indicator for evaluating the compatibility of wire and cable conductor materials and cross-sections. When the conductor resistance exceeds the standard, the loss of the current passing through the line is increased, and the heating of the wire and cable is aggravated. The main reason for the unqualified conductor resistance is that some companies shrink the copper material, which accounts for 80% of the raw material cost, in order to reduce the cost, reduce the cross-sectional area of the conductor or use recycled copper with too high impurities, which causes the conductor resistance of the wire and cable to seriously exceed the standard. , In the process of use, in addition to easily causing fire, it will also accelerate the aging of the insulating layer covering the wire.

The way and role of metal shielding in medinum voltage power cable
The way and role of metal shielding in medinum voltage power cable
The metal shielding methods of medium-voltage XLPE insulated power cables are mainly composed of copper tape overlap wrapping shielding and sparse copper wire shielding. According to the GB/T12706-2008 standard for cables with rated voltage from 6kV to 35kV, the average overlap ratio of copper tape in the copper tape shielding method is not less than 15% of the width of the copper tape (nominal value), and the minimum value is not less than 5%. The thickness of copper tape for single-core cables is ≥ 0. 12mm, the average thickness of multi-core cables is ≥ 0. 10mm, and the minimum thickness of copper tape is not less than 90% of the nominal value. The copper wire shield consists of loosely wound soft copper wires, the surface of which should be fastened by reversely wound copper wires or copper tapes, and the average gap between adjacent copper wires should not be greater than 4mm. The shielding on the cable structure is a measure to improve the distribution of the electric field. The role of the metal shielding mainly has the following aspects: 1. When the cable is normally energized, the metal shielding layer passes the capacitive current, and when the short-circuit fault occurs, the short-circuit current passes. 2. The electromagnetic field caused when the cable is energized is shielded in the insulated core to reduce electromagnetic interference to the outside world, and the metal shielding layer also limits the impact of the external electromagnetic field on the interior. 3. The power station protection system requires the outer metal shield to have better lightning protection properties. 4. Homogenize the electric field to prevent axial discharge. Since the semi-conductive layer has a certain resistance, when the metal shielding layer is poorly grounded, the cable will discharge along the surface due to uneven potential distribution in the cable axis.

3. Wire and cable with aging insulation layer   The unqualified tensile strength and elongation of the insulating sheath before aging directly greatly shortens the working life of the wire and cable, and the insulator is easily broken during construction or in a long-term energized and high-temperature environment, resulting in live conductors. If exposed, there is a risk of short circuit that can cause electric shock. The main reasons for its failure are: first, the use of recycled materials for production to reduce product costs; second, small enterprises that do not have production qualifications cut corners for profit.

Power transmission steps
Power transmission steps
Transmission process The transmission of electric energy, together with power transformation, distribution and consumption, constitutes the overall function of the power system. Through power transmission, the power plants far away (up to thousands of meters) are connected with load centers, so that the development and utilization of electric energy go beyond the regional limits. Transmission lines can be divided into overhead transmission lines and underground transmission lines according to their structural forms. The former consists of line towers, conductors and insulators, which are erected on the ground; The latter is mainly laid underground (or underwater) with cables. Transmission can be divided into DC transmission and AC transmission according to the nature of the transmitted current. This process uses different types or overhead bare conductors such as AAC, AAAC, ACSR, etc. Transformation process In the power system, the power plant converts the natural primary energy into electric energy and sends power to the remote power users. In order to reduce the power loss on the transmission line and the line impedance voltage drop, it is necessary to increase the voltage; In order to meet the security needs of power users, the voltage should be reduced and distributed to each user, which requires a substation that can increase and decrease the voltage and distribute power. Therefore, the substation is an electrical device in the power system that converts voltage, receives and distributes electric energy through it. It is an intermediate link between the power plant and power users. At the same time, the power grid of various voltage levels is connected through the substation. The function of the substation is to transform voltage, transmit and distribute electric energy. The substation is composed of power transformer, power distribution device, secondary system and necessary auxiliary equipment. The transformer is the central equipment of the substation, which uses the principle of electromagnetic induction. This process uses different types of cables such as high voltage, medinum voltage and low voltage power cable, aerial bundled cable, electrical wires.

Introduction to the use of cables and materials commonly used in solar photovoltaic power stations
Introduction to the use of cables and materials commonly used in solar photovoltaic power stations
During the construction of a solar photovoltaic power station, in addition to the main equipment, such as photovoltaic modules, inverters, and step-up transformers, the photovoltaic cable materials connected to the photovoltaic power station have the same effect on the overall profitability, operation safety, and high efficiency of the photovoltaic power station. plays a vital role.. According to the system of solar photovoltaic power station, cables can be divided into DC cables and AC cables. According to the different uses and use environments, they are classified as follows: 1. DC cable (1) Serial cables between components. (2) Parallel cables between the strings and between the strings and the DC distribution box (combiner box). (3) The cable between the DC distribution box and the inverter. The above cables are all DC cables, and there are many outdoor layings. They need to be moisture-proof, sun-proof, cold-resistant, heat-resistant, and UV-resistant. In some special environments, they also need to be protected from chemicals such as acid and alkali. 2. AC cable (1) The connecting cable from the inverter to the step-up transformer. (2) The connecting cable from the step-up transformer to the power distribution device. (3) The connecting cable from the power distribution device to the power grid or the user. This part of the cable is an AC load cable, which is laid in the indoor environment and can be selected according to the general power cable selection requirements. 3. Photovoltaic special cable A large number of DC cables in photovoltaic power plants need to be laid outdoors, and the environmental conditions are harsh. The cable materials should be determined according to the resistance to ultraviolet rays, ozone, severe temperature changes and chemical erosion. The long-term use of ordinary material cables in this environment will cause the cable sheath to be fragile, and even decompose the cable insulation. These conditions will directly damage the cable system, but also increase the risk of short-circuiting the cable. In the medium and long term, the possibility of fire or personal injury is also higher, which greatly affects the service life of the system. 4. Cable conductor material Most of the DC cables used in photovoltaic power plants work outdoors for a long time. Due to the limitation of construction conditions, connectors are mostly used for cable connection. Cable conductor materials can be divided into copper core and aluminum core. 5. Cable insulation sheath material During the installation, operation and maintenance of photovoltaic power plants, cables may be routed in the soil below the ground, in overgrown rocks, on the sharp edges of roof structures, or exposed to the air, and the cables may be impacted by various external forces. If the cable jacket is not strong enough, the cable insulation will be damaged, affecting the service life of the entire cable, or causing problems such as short circuits, fire and personal injury hazards.

The Hazards of Moisture to Power Cable
The Hazards of Moisture to Power Cable
The rapid development of electric power industry has promoted the development of the electrical industry supporting the electric power industry, especially the wire and cable industry. The variety development of wire and cable shows a diversified trend. Wires and cables have developed from simple power transmission to multi-function, that is, some new characteristics have been added according to different uses, such as the water resistance requirements of power cables. With the deepening of the research and understanding of insulation water absorption and water tree, people are more and more aware of the importance of waterproof performance for medium and high voltage power cables. In areas with high groundwater level or perennial rainfall. More and more users require waterproof performance for cables.   After water is immersed in the cable, the main influence is on the conductor and insulation of the cable. As far as the conductor is concerned, the cable is in a thermal stable state during normal operation, and the conductor temperature is generally above 60. If there is water immersion, it will lead to conductor oxidation and increase the energy loss resistance between conductor single wires, which increases the conductor resistance and the energy loss of transmission line, In terms of insulation, although polyethylene is a non-polar hydrophobic material that is very difficult to dissolve in water, polyethylene is a semi crystalline polymer composed of crystalline phase and amorphous phase. The phase structure of polyethylene is compact, but there are defects at the grain boundary; The molecular arrangement in the amorphous phase is loose. There is a large gap between molecules. Water molecules are polar. Under the combined action of diffusion force and electric field force under alternating electric field, water molecules can easily penetrate into the capacity gap of amorphous phase and grain boundary defects of crystalline phase of polyethylene. The above problems also exist in the molecular structure of cross-linked polyethylene. At the same time, there are many cross-linked by-products in cross-linked polyethylene as impurities, so cross-linked polyethylene also has large water absorption under alternating electric field. Cross linked polyethylene and polyethylene insulation will produce water tree after absorbing water, which will cause breakdown and damage to the running cable.   Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., can do radinal water prevention structure by adding water prevention tape into different layer of the MV cable. If you are looking for such performance for MV cable, please come to us.

The function of Control cable's shield
The function of Control cable's shield
Shielded control cable is generally used as the connecting line of electrical instruments, which is suitable for the connecting line of electrical instruments with AC rated voltage of 450 / 750V and below and the transmission line of automatic control system. It has excellent properties such as oil resistance, waterproof, wear resistance, acid and alkali resistance, various corrosive gases, aging resistance and non combustion. Shielded control cable is a cable with a layer of mesh copper wire or metal wire braided around one or more wires. This layer of mesh wire can prevent lightning stroke, and external signals can not interfere with its. The shielding layer can also play a certain role in leakage protection. If the cable is damaged and electric leakage occurs during use, the shielding layer can lead the leaked current to the grounding wire, which plays a certain role in safety protection. At the same time, it can also protect the cable conductor. The function of shielding layer and grounding wire of shielding control cable is: the shielding layer is divided into internal shielding and external shielding. They are all designed to make good contact between the cable conductor and the insulating layer, and between the cable insulating layer and the inner protective layer, so as to eliminate the increase of surface electric field intensity caused by the unsmooth surface of the conductor and the inner protective layer Service characteristics of shielded control cable: (1) Allowable bending radius of cable: the minimum bending radius of non armored cable is 6 times of the outer diameter of the cable. Fluoroplastic insulated and sheathed cables shall be at least 8 times of the outer diameter of the cable. Copper tape shielded or steel tape armored cable shall be at least 12 times of the outer diameter of the cable. (2) Maximum working temperature: the insulation of polyperfluoroethylene propylene (F46) shall not exceed 200 ℃. Soluble polytetrafluoroethylene (PFA) insulation shall not exceed 260 ℃. (3) Minimum ambient temperature: PVC sheath: fixed laying - 40 ℃, non fixed laying - 15 ℃. Fluoroplastic and silicone rubber sheath: fixed laying - 60 ℃, non fixed laying - 20 ℃. The cable installation and laying temperature shall not be lower than 0 ℃ (fluoroplastic, silicone rubber and nitrile sheathed cable shall not be lower than - 25 ℃).

Why doesn't aluminum rust?
Why doesn't aluminum rust?
This question is wrong, and aluminum also rusts, but when aluminum rusts, it does not rust like iron until it is completely rusted. ​​  The oxidation of metal by oxygen in the air is rust. Aluminum reacts chemically with oxygen to form aluminum oxide, which is aluminum rust. Aluminum rust is very thin, its thickness is only ten thousandths of a millimeter, but it is very hard and very wear-resistant. It clings to the surface of the aluminum so that the aluminum inside is not exposed to the outside air, preventing the aluminum from continuing to rust.

What are the advantages of copper core cable over aluminum core cable?
What are the advantages of copper core cable over aluminum core cable?
1. Low resistivity: the resistivity of aluminum core cable is about 1.68 times higher than that of copper core cable.   2. Good ductility: the ductility of copper alloy is 20 ~ 40%, that of electrical copper is more than 30%, and that of aluminum alloy is only 18%.   3. High strength: the allowable stress of copper is 7 ~ 28% higher than that of aluminum at room temperature. Especially the stress at high temperature, the difference between the two is very far.   4. Fatigue resistance: aluminum is easy to break after repeated bending, while copper is not. In terms of elasticity index, copper is also about 1.7 ~ 1.8 times higher than aluminum. (low voltage power cable, medinum voltage power cable)   5. Good stability and corrosion resistance: copper core is resistant to oxidation and corrosion, while aluminum core is vulnerable to oxidation and corrosion.   6. Large current carrying capacity: due to low resistivity, the allowable current carrying capacity (maximum current that can be passed) of copper core cable with the same section is about 30% higher than that of aluminum core cable   7. Low voltage loss: due to the low resistivity of copper core cable, when the same current flows through the same section. The voltage drop of copper core cable is small. The same transmission distance can ensure high voltage quality; Under the condition of allowable voltage drop, the transmission of copper core cable can reach a long distance, that is, the power supply coverage area is large, which is conducive to network planning and reduce the number of power supply points.   8. Low heating temperature: under the same current, the heating capacity of copper core cable with the same section is much smaller than that of aluminum core cable, making the operation safer. (Aluminum conductor steel reinforced, ACSR)   9. Low energy consumption: due to the low resistivity of copper, compared with aluminum cable, the power loss of copper cable is low, which is obvious. This is conducive to improving the utilization rate of power generation and protecting the environment.   10. Oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance: the connector of copper core cable has stable performance and will not cause accidents due to oxidation. The joint of aluminum core cable is unstable, and accidents often occur due to the increase of contact resistance and heating due to oxidation. Therefore, the accident rate is much higher than that of copper core cable.   11. Convenient construction: The copper core has good flexibility and small allowable bending radius, so it is convenient to turn and pass through the pipe; The copper core is anti fatigue and not easy to break after repeated bending, so the wiring is convenient; The copper core has high mechanical strength and can bear large mechanical tension, which not only brings great convenience to the construction and laying, but also creates conditions for mechanized construction.

What is the difference between DC cable&AC cable?
What is the difference between DC cable&AC cable?
1. The systems used are different. DC cables are used in rectified DC transmission systems, and AC cables are often used in power frequency (domestic 50Hz) power systems. 2. Compared with the AC cable, the power loss in the transmission process of the DC cable is smaller. The power loss of the DC cable is mainly the DC resistance loss of the conductor, and the insulation loss is small (the size depends on the current fluctuation after rectification); while the AC resistance of the low-voltage AC cable is slightly larger than the DC resistance, and the high-voltage cable is obvious, mainly because Proximity effect and skin effect, the loss of insulation resistance accounts for a large proportion, mainly the impedance generated by capacitance and inductance. 3. High transmission efficiency and small line loss. 4. It is convenient to adjust the current and change the direction of power transmission. 5. Although the price of converter equipment is higher than that of transformers, the cost of using cable lines is much lower than that of AC cables. The DC cable has positive and negative poles, and the structure is simple; the AC cable is three-phase four-wire or five-wire system, which requires high insulation safety and complex structure, and the cable cost is more than three times that of the DC cable. 6. DC cables are safe to use 1) Due to the inherent characteristics of DC transmission, it is difficult to generate induced current and leakage current, and it will not cause electric field interference to other cables laid in the same way. 2) The single-core laying cable will not affect the transmission performance of the cable due to the hysteresis loss of the steel structure bridge. 3) It has higher current interception capability and over-interruption protection capability than DC cables of the same structure. 4) Direct and alternating electric fields of the same voltage are applied to the insulation, and the direct electric field is much safer than the alternating electric field. 7. The installation and maintenance of the DC cable are simple and the cost is low.

How to reasonably choose the conductors of overhead lines?
How to reasonably choose the conductors of overhead lines?
1. The principle of wire selection The conductor and ground wires of power transmission lines operate in the wilderness, mountainous areas or the edge of lakes and seas for a long time, and need to withstand the effects of external loads such as wind and ice, drastic changes in temperature and attack by chemical gases, etc., and are also subject to national resources and line costs And other factors. Therefore, in the design, especially for large spans, the material and structure of the wires must be carefully selected. Generally, the following principles should be considered when selecting the material and structure of the wire: ⑴ The conductor material should have high conductivity. However, considering national resources, copper wires should not be used in general. ⑵The conductor and ground wire should have high mechanical strength and vibration resistance. ⑶ The conductor and ground wire should have certain chemical resistance and oxidation resistance. ⑷ When choosing the wire material and structure, in addition to meeting the transmission capacity, the cost of the line should be economical and technically reasonable. 2. Selection of wire cross section The cross section of the overhead transmission line conductor is generally selected according to the economic current density, and should be checked according to the heating conditions, voltage loss, mechanical strength and corona in the event of an accident. When necessary, it is determined through technical and economic comparison; but for lines of 110KV and below, corona is often not the decisive factor in selecting the conductor cross section. 1) Choose the wire section according to the economic current density According to the economic current density to select the transmission capacity used for the conductor cross-section, the development plan of the power system should be considered for 5-10 years after the line is put into operation. In the calculation, the maximum load that frequently recurs under the normal operation mode must be adopted. But when the system is not clear, care should be taken not to make the wire cross section too small. 2) Check the cross-section of the wire according to the corona condition With the continuous increase of operating voltage in my country, the probability of corona and discharge of wires, insulators and fittings has increased. For the cross-section of wires of 220KV and above voltage lines, corona conditions often play a major role. The corona generated by the wire will bring about two undesirable consequences: ① It increases the power loss of the power transmission line; ② It interferes with radio communication and carrier communication. Regarding the corona loss, if the corona loss of the transmission line is directly calculated, the advantage is that the concept of quantity is very clear, but the disadvantage is that the calculation is cumbersome. This method is rarely used at present. It tends to be measured by the ratio of the maximum working electric field strength Em (unit: KV/cm) of the wire to the critical electric field strength E0 of the overall corona. The ratio of Em/E0 should not be greater than 80%-85%.

What do elastic coefficient and expansion coefficient mean?
What do elastic coefficient and expansion coefficient mean?
Elastic coefficient is also called elastic modulus. Elastic modulus is not only an important factor affecting cable stiffness, but also an important physical quantity affecting the operating tension of overhead wire and cable. The elastic modulus of overhead conductor is not only related to the material, but also closely related to the structure of conductor, such as the number of strands of conductor and the process parameters of strand.  The exact elastic modulus of conductor should be determined by tensile test, so it is often said that there are initial and final values, while the test report often only gives "measured values".   The coefficient of expansion is sometimes called linear elasticity, which refers to the percentage of the change in the length of the material for every 1 ℃ change in temperature, also known as the coefficient of linear expansion. When the temperature of a solid substance changes by 1 ℃, the ratio of the change of its length to its length at 0 ℃ is called "coefficient of linear expansion". Due to different substances, the linear expansion coefficient is also different, and its value is also related to the actual temperature and the reference temperature selected when determining length 1. However, because the linear expansion coefficient of solid changes little, it can be ignored, and a is regarded as a constant independent of temperature.

The reason for the unqualified wire and cable?
The reason for the unqualified wire and cable?
Analyze the reasons for the unqualified wires and cables for everyone:   Marking is the main way for wires and cables to identify the basic information of products. According to standard regulations, the main content of the mark is: product model, specification, standard number, factory name, place of origin, etc. within a certain mark interval. When the mark is unqualified, it will cause the construction personnel's identification error, and in serious cases, it may cause electrical accidents.

How to choose cable's nominal cross sectional area?
How to choose cable's nominal cross sectional area?
1. Select the cable cross-sectional area according to the long-term allowable current-carrying capacity 1.1 In order to ensure safety and the service life of the cable, the temperature of the cable after power-on should not exceed the specified long-term allowable working temperature. The temperature is 70 degrees for polyvinyl chloride insulated cables and 90 degrees for XLPE insulated cables. According to this principle , It's very simple to look up the table and choose the cable. 1.2 Examples: A certain factory has a transformer capacity of 2500KVa and uses 10KV power supply. If XLPE insulated cables are used to lay in the bridge, what is the cross-sectional area of ​​the cable? Step 1: Calculate the rated current 2500/10.5/1.732=137A Step 2: Check the cable selection manual to know YJV-8.7/10KV-3X25 current carrying capacity is 120A YJV-8.7/10KV-3X35 current carrying capacity is 140A Step 3: Choose YJV-8.7/10KV-3X35 with a cable carrying capacity greater than 137A, which can theoretically meet the requirements. Note: This method does not consider the requirements of dynamic stability and thermal stability. 2. Choose the cable cross-sectional area according to the economic current density Simply understand the economic current density. The cross-sectional area of ​​the cable affects the line investment and power loss. In order to save investment, it is hoped that the cable cross-sectional area should be smaller; in order to reduce the power loss, it is hoped that the cable cross-sectional area should be larger; based on the above considerations, determine a reasonable one The cross-sectional area of ​​the cable is called the economic cross-sectional area, and the corresponding current density is called the economic current density. 3. Select the cable cross-sectional area according to the voltage drop of the power grid When we use the first and second methods to select the cross-sectional area of ​​the cable, if the cable is very long, a certain voltage drop will occur during operation and startup, and the voltage on the device side will be below a certain range, which will cause the device to heat up. 4. Select the cross-sectional area of ​​the cable according to the thermal stability coefficient (that is, select the cross-sectional area of ​​the cable according to the short-circuit current) 4.1 When the 0.4KV cable is protected by an air switch, the general cable can meet the thermal stability requirements, so there is no need to verify it according to this method. 4.2 For cables above 6KV, after selecting the cross-sectional area of ​​the cable using the above method, you must verify whether it meets the thermal stability requirements according to the following formula. If it does not meet the requirements, choose a larger cross-sectional area. Formula: Smin=Id×√Ti/C Among them, Ti is the breaking time of the circuit breaker, which is 0.25S, C is the thermal stability coefficient of the cable, which is 80, and Id is the three-phase short-circuit current value of the system. For example: when the system short-circuit current is 18KA, how to choose the cable cross-sectional area. Smin=18000×√0.25/80=112.5 Conclusion: If the system short-circuit current reaches 18KA, even if the rated current of the equipment is smaller, the cable cross-sectional area should not be less than 120mm2.

Copper price breaks through a record high?
Copper price breaks through a record high?
CopperFundamental analysis   Global excess liquidity has triggered large fluctuations in asset prices, and the superposition of the new crown pneumonia epidemic has led to a mismatch of supply and demand. Non-ferrous commodities such as copper and aluminum staged a rare bull market. From a macro perspective, the U.S. non-agricultural employment data is far below expectations, and the market expects the Fed to continue its dovish policy. Last week, the net fund holdings rebounded rapidly, and the copper trading sentiment in the international market heated up. From a fundamental point of view, TC still maintains a momentum of recovery, and the strike of Chilean copper mine workers has ended; from the demand side, the price difference of refined copper scrap is at a historical low level. When the price drops to a low level, scrap copper holders are reluctant to sell. The market shifted to refined copper consumption. However, with the advent of September and October, consumption has entered a seasonal peak season and new energy demand has long been positive for copper prices. Short-term long-term factors are intertwined, and Shanghai Copper fluctuates within the range.

How to prevent electric shock in rainy days?
How to prevent electric shock in rainy days?
1. There are wires in the street lamp pole. For safety, stay away from them on rainy days. 2. Construction section of the road. The road condition around the construction section is poor and complex, and the safety cannot be guaranteed. Once there are loopholes in the construction, it is easy to cause the "big scene" of "sky thunder and earth fire" 3. Power equipment. Generally, transformers and electric boxes are treated safely and are safe without active touch and climbing. However, the situation of rainstorm weather is complex, and various unexpected situations may occur. For safety consideration, please stay away from them. What should I do after an electric shock? 1. If someone is found to be electrocuted and fall to the ground in the water, do not rush to help with your hands, and make the electrocuted person quickly get out of the power supply. When there is a power switch or socket around, pull down the switch or unplug the power plug immediately; If the power supply cannot be disconnected, use a dry wooden stick to pick up the wire on the person who gets an electric shock. 2. After an electric shock, the human body often appears "fake death". To carry out first aid for the injured by electric shock, make them lie flat on their back on the spot and ensure that the airway is unblocked. Judge whether the injured has breathing by observing whether the injured has breathing movement in the abdomen and chest corridor, or by touching whether the neck artery beats. If no breathing is found, resuscitate immediately and contact the emergency center.

What is the bending radius of cable?
What is the bending radius of cable?
The bending radius of the cable can be explained from two aspects: one is the bending radius of the cable itself, and the other is the bending radius of the cable during construction and laying. The calculation of the minimum bending radius of the cable is introduced below. The standard of the bending radius of the cable is complete. 1. Calculation of cable bending radius If the outer diameter of the cable is 10mm, the allowable bending radius of the cable is 15 * 10 = 150mm. That is, when the cable is bent (at the corner), it is an arc bend. The arc bend can be based on the intersection of the vertical line of the tangent at any two points on the arc, that is, the radius of the arc, which should be greater than or equal to 150mm. 2. Standard for cable bending radius Plastic insulated power cable of 35kV and below and plastic insulated control cable For non armored cable, it shall not be less than 6D of the outer diameter of the cable; Armored or copper tape shielded cable shall not be less than 12D of cable outer diameter; Shielded flexible cable shall not be less than 6D of the outer diameter of the cable. 2. 1 GB50303-2002 code for acceptance of construction quality of building electrical engineering The bending radius at the turning of the cable tray shall not be less than the minimum allowable bending radius of the cable in the tray. The minimum bending radius of PVC insulated power cable is 10d; The minimum bending radius of XLPE insulated power cable is 15d; The minimum bending radius of multi-core control cable is 10d. 3. For bare conductor, usually the bending radius cannot be less than 30D

Features  Of Aerial Bundled  Cable
Features Of Aerial Bundled Cable
Overhead insulated cable has the main characteristics of high power supply reliability, good power supply safety, convenient erection and maintenance and reasonable economy 1. High power supply reliability. The use of overhead cable can greatly reduce all kinds of short-circuit faults (especially the common flashover faults of overhead bare conductor), and the fault rate is 4-6 times lower than that of overhead bare conductor. 2. Good power supply security. When the overhead cable is energized, when the human body or other animals accidentally touch the cable insulation surface, as long as the cable is not broken down, it will not cause harm to people and animals. 3. Convenient erection and maintenance. Overhead cables can be erected on any kind of pole and tower or along the wall. In special cases, they can also pass through the trees and be directly fixed on the tree pole with hardware. There is no need for special patrol inspection, and there will be no short-circuit tripping accident due to branch flashover, littering by residents, or false collision of crane boom, which greatly reduces the maintenance and overhaul of the line. 4. Reasonable economy. Although the overhead cable is more expensive than the overhead bare conductor, it is cheaper than the ordinary underground installation cable. Therefore, although the one-time investment of overhead cable is slightly higher, combined with other factors, its operation cost will be significantly lower than that of overhead bare conductor. Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., Ltd can produce different types of aerial insulated cable as per different standards inculding IEC, NFC-33109, AS NZS3560, etc.. Welcome your inquiry.

What is a waterproof cable?
What is a waterproof cable?
Cables that can be normally used in water are collectively referred to as water blocking (waterproof) power cables. When the cable is laid underwater, it is often immersed in water or wet places, the cable is required to have the function of water prevention (resistance), that is, it is required to have the function of full water resistance, so as to prevent water from immersing into the cable and causing damage to the cable and ensure the long-term stable operation of the cable under water. The difference between waterproof cable and ordinary cable is that ordinary cable cannot be used in water. Waterproof cables mainly fall into the following three categories: An oil paper insulated cable is the most typical water-resistant cable. Its insulation and conductor are filled with cable oil, and there is a metal sheath (lead sheath or aluminum sheath) outside the insulation. It is the cable with the best water resistance. In the past, oil paper insulated cables were mostly used for submarine (or underwater) cables, but oil paper insulated cables are limited by the drop, which has the trouble of oil leakage and inconvenient maintenance. Now they are used less and less. Second, the ethylene propylene rubber insulated cable widely used in medium and low voltage underwater transmission lines is due to its superior insulation performance without the worry of "water tree". Waterproof rubber sheathed cable (JHS type) can operate safely in shallow water for a long time. Three crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) insulated power cable has become the most widely used insulating material because of its excellent electrical, mechanical and physical properties, simple production process, light structure, large transmission capacity, convenient installation, laying and maintenance, and not limited by drop. However, it is particularly sensitive to moisture. If the insulation is soaked with water during manufacturing and operation, It is prone to "water tree" breakdown, which greatly shortens the service life of the cable. Therefore, XLPE insulated cables, especially medium and high voltage cables under AC voltage, must have "water blocking structure" when used in water environment or humid environment. The so-called "water blocking structure" includes radial water blocking structure and longitudinal water blocking structure.

What kind of cables are used in photovoltaic power station?
What kind of cables are used in photovoltaic power station?
In the process of photovoltaic power station construction, in addition to the main equipment, such as photovoltaic modules, inverters, step-up transformers, the supporting connected photovoltaic cable materials also play a vital role in the overall profitability, operation safety, and efficiency of the photovoltaic power station. The following is a detailed introduction to the use and use environment of the common cables and materials in the photovoltaic power station.   According to the system of photovoltaic power station, cables can be divided into DC cables and AC cables, which are classified as follows according to different uses and environments: 1. DC cable (1) Series cables between components. (2) Parallel cables between strings and between strings and DC distribution box (junction box). (3) Cable between DC distribution box and inverter. The above cables are DC cables, which are laid outdoors. They need to be moisture-proof, sun proof, cold resistant, heat-resistant and UV resistant. In some special environments, they also need to be resistant to acid-base and other chemicals. 2. AC cable (1) Connecting cable from inverter to step-up transformer. (2) Connecting cable from step-up transformer to power distribution device. (3) The connecting cable from the power distribution device to the power grid or users. This part of the cable is AC load cable, laying more indoor environment, can be selected according to the general power cable selection requirements.   Zhenglan Cable Technology Co., Ltd can supply you both AC&DC use cables.

What are the factors affecting insulation resistance of wires and cables?
What are the factors affecting insulation resistance of wires and cables?
1. Ambient temperature: The coefficient of insulation resistance is closely related to temperature. The higher the temperature is, the smaller the insulation resistance is. This is a conclusion drawn from numerous experiments and practices. The coefficient of insulation resistance decreases exponentially with the increase of temperature, while the conductance (power conduction) power increases with the increase of temperature.   2. Humidity effect: Conductance -- a parameter indicating the current transmission capacity of a conductor. The conductivity of water is large, and the water molecule is much smaller than that of polymer (cable sheath material). When the surrounding humidity is high, the water molecule is easy to penetrate into the insulation, resulting in the increase of conductivity and the decrease of cable insulation resistance.   3. Purity of insulating material: Insulation refers to wrapping the charged body with non-conductive material. What if the purity of insulating material is not enough? What about the conductive materials mixed in the insulating materials—— There is no doubt that this will reduce the insulation resistance of the cable, and ultimately affect the quality of the finished cable. This is an important factor affecting the insulation resistance of cables. Cable insulation resistance is one of the main electrical properties of insulating materials, which is an important index to measure wire and cable products. Once it is lower than a certain numerical standard, it will lead to low power transmission efficiency, waste of power, increase the probability of cable breakdown and increase the risk. Therefore, we must pay attention to this key issue when purchasing wires and cables.

Function and difference of metallic shield for medium voltage cable
Function and difference of metallic shield for medium voltage cable
As an important structure of medium voltage power cable, metal shielding layer will pass capacitive current under normal operation of the cable, and act as the path of short-circuit current in case of short circuit; At the same time, the electromagnetic field generated when the cable is electrified is shielded in the insulated core to reduce the electromagnetic interference to the outside world.   The copper strip shielding is composed of a layer of overlapped soft copper strip, and the double-layer copper strip can also be used for gap wrapping. The nominal thickness of copper strip for single core cable shielding is not less than 0.12mm. The copper wire shield is composed of loosely wound soft copper wire, and its surface is tightly tied with reverse wound copper wire or copper tape. The average gap between adjacent copper wires shall be no more than 4mm.   The shielding method of copper wire and copper strip winding can improve the disadvantages of shielding method of copper strip winding from the structure. It has neither oxide layer produced by copper strip overlapping, nor strong bending and hot and cold deformation, and the copper strip winding is not easy to arch and embed into the insulation shielding layer. The cross-section of the metal shield directly affects the ability of the cable to withstand the short-circuit current in case of fault. If the cross-section is too small, the short-circuit current will overheat or burn out and damage the insulation. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the cross section of metal shield according to the fault current capacity.   In 10kV and below cable, when conductor section is more than 500, try to use copper wire shielding! If you insist on using copper tape shielding, you need to thicken the thickness of copper tape! According to the conditions of cable laying, if it needs to carry a large short-circuit current, it is recommended to use copper wire shielding. Therefore, the difference between copper tape shielding and copper wire shielding is the ability to carry short-circuit current. Copper wire is slightly larger (also depends on the effect of copper wire). Copper tape is homogenizing magnetic field and shielding.

What is drainage wire?
What is drainage wire?
Drainage line is a kind of lightning protection facilities, which is mainly used for directly buried cables to prevent induced lightning current. That is to say, when there is lightning damage, the induced lightning may enter the cable (mainly the cable) in the way of induction. This is to lay the drainage line in the cable construction. It can be said that the induced current is guided into the ground, so as to protect the personal and equipment safety. The drainage wire has three functions A. Generally speaking, if the peak value of direct lightning current hitting the drainage line is not higher than 15ka, there is almost no counterattack to the cable. With the help of the lightning current flowing on the drainage line, the induced current on the cable is opposite to the lightning current directly discharged from the lightning point to the cable, so that the total current on the cable is significantly reduced, So as to reduce the overvoltage between the cable core and the metal sheath. B. Even if the soil between the drain line and the cable is broken down and discharged to the cable, the drain line can reduce the degree of lightning damage and the lightning current flowing into the cable. C. It can reduce the energy produced by the thermal and mechanical effects of lightning stroke on the cable.

Water blocking cable design and their benefits
Water blocking cable design and their benefits
With the deepening of research and understanding of insulation water absorption and water tree, people are more and more aware of the importance of waterproof performance for medium and high voltage power cables. In areas where the groundwater level is high or rainy all the year round (such as the area south of the Yangtze River in China). More and more users have put forward waterproof requirements for cables. Most of the power cables are directly buried, so the cables are very likely to suffer from soil pressure and external force damage due to human factors. From the perspective of laying forms, most foreign countries use metal protective sheaths for mechanical protection and waterproofing, or use cables covered with thin metal tapes and other waterproof layers. However, once this kind of cable is damaged, water will invade the inside of the cable from the damage, and then penetrate into the gap inside the cable (between conductor strands, extruded semi-conductive layer, shielding layer or metal sheath, etc.). Extend longitudinally along the cable, making long cables unusable. When the directly buried cable fails, a new cable is usually replaced at the point of the accident to restore the line. Therefore, once water penetrates into the cable, the water seepage distance should be as short as possible. In order to prevent water seepage after immersion, generally The gap part is used to wrap the water-absorbing swelling material, once it is immersed in water, the gap can be easily blocked. Generally, the sheath material used in cables is polyvinyl chloride, and polyvinyl chloride molecules are polar. Polar water molecules can easily penetrate into the cable through the polyvinyl chloride layer. At present, it is necessary to realize the longitudinal water-blocking technology of the cable. There is no problem with the above, as long as a layer of water-blocking material made of water-tight material is added to the jacket. The currently commonly used method is to squeeze a layer of medium-high density PVC inner jacket in the PVC outer jacket or longitudinally wrap a layer of aluminum-plastic composite tape as the longitudinal water-blocking isolation jacket. Polyethylene is easy to absorb water under an alternating electric field, which does not mean that the water tightness of the polyethylene material is not good. The water tightness of polyethylene material is hundreds of times higher than that of polyvinyl chloride. The extruded polyethylene water blocking layer and a layer of moisture-absorbing cushion (such as water blocking tape) can meet the longitudinal resistance of cables laid in general humid environments. Water and moisture-proof requirements. The use of polyethylene material in the water-blocking isolation sleeve is relatively simple in process, and it can be realized without adding any production equipment. Because the polyethylene layer is only used as a water-blocking layer without considering its mechanical strength and other factors, a good effect can be achieved when its thickness is 1.0~1.5mm during process design due to cost and process considerations. Water blocking tape (yarn) can quickly swell in contact with water and reach a certain swelling height and can form a high-strength gel. It is an ideal active water blocking material, using water blocking tape, water blocking rope, and water blocking As a water-blocking material, yarn has simple process and convenient construction and high production efficiency. Therefore, this structure is generally welcomed by users and manufacturers. Because the contact surface between the single-core cable insulation and the sheath is relatively flat, as long as it is between the outer sheath and the core Wrap a layer of water blocking tape to achieve a good longitudinal water blocking effect. If there is a metal shield, you need to wrap the semi-conductive resistance hose on the inner side of the metal shield. Multi-core cables also need to be effectively filled with water-blocking ropes and water-blocking yarns in the gaps between the cable cores, and then wound with water-blocking tapes. For cables with armored layers, it is also necessary to use two layers inside and outside the armoring layer. A layer of water blocking tape is wrapped around each side. Zhenglan Cable Technology can meet your special requirements in cable's water prevention. Welcome your inquiry.

Basic cable knowledge
Basic cable knowledge
I. Basic introduction of wires and cables Wire and Cable: it is usually twisted by several or several groups of wires [at least two in each group], similar to ropes. Each group of wires is insulated from each other and often twisted around a center. The whole outside is covered with a highly insulated covering layer. It is mostly used to transmit, distribute electric energy or transmit electrical signals. Wires and Cables are mainly composed of the following four parts 1. Conductive wire core: made of high conductivity material (copper or aluminum). According to the requirements of laying conditions for cable softness, each core may be stranded by a single wire or multiple wires. 2. Insulation layer: insulation material used as cable should have high insulation resistance. Insulation material commonly used in cables include oil-immersed paper, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, cross-linked polyethylene, rubber, etc. 3. Sealed jacket: protect the insulated wire core from mechanical, moisture, moisture, chemicals, light, etc. For insulation that is prone to moisture, lead or aluminum is generally used to squeeze sealed jacket. 4. Protective Cover: used to protect sealed jacket from mechanical damage. Galvanized steel strip, steel wire, copper strips wire, copper wire, etc. are generally used as armor to wrap around the sheath (called armored cable), and the armored layer can shield the electric field and prevent the interference of external electromagnetic waves at the same time. In order to avoid the corrosion of steel strips and steel wires by the surrounding medium, they are usually coated with asphalt or wrapped with impregnated jute layer or extruded polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride sleeve. II. Wire and Cable Specifications Wire and Cable specifications are the meaning of the representation of the number of cores and cross-sectional dimensions of wires and cables. The complete naming of wires and cables is usually more complicated, so people sometimes use a simple name (usually a category name) combined with model specifications to replace the complete name, for example, "Low Voltage Cable" represents all plastic insulated power cables of 0.6/1kV level. The type spectrum of the cable is relatively perfect. It can be said that as long as the standard model specifications of the wire and cable are written, the specific products can be clearly defined. III. Application classification of wires and cables (1) classified by insulation material, such as oil-immersed paper insulated cables, polyvinyl chloride cables, XLPE cables, etc. (Ii) classified by purpose, divided into power cable, communication cable and control cable, etc. It is applied to power system, information transmission system, mechanical equipment and instrument system respectively. 1. Power system Wire and cable products used in power system mainly include overhead bare wire, busbar (bus), power cable (plastic cable, oil paper power cable (basically replaced by plastic power cable), rubber-sleeve cable, overhead insulated cable), branch cables (replacing some bus bars), electromagnetic wire, electrical equipment wires and cables for power equipment, etc. 2. Information transmission system The wires and cables used in information transmission system mainly include local cable, TV cables, electronic cables, radio frequency cables, optical fiber cables, data cables, electromagnetic wire, power communication or other composite cables. 3. Mechanical equipment, instrumentation system Almost all products except overhead bare wires in this part have applications, but they are mainly power cables, electromagnetic wire cables, data cables, instrument cables, etc. (3) according to product classification, it is divided into five categories 1. Bare wire and bare conductor products The main features of this product are: pure conductor metal, no insulation and sheath layer, such as steel core aluminum stranded wire, copper aluminum busbar, electric locomotive wire, etc.; The processing technology is mainly pressure processing, such as smelting, calendering, drawing, stranding/compact stranding, etc.; Products are mainly used in suburbs, rural areas, user main lines, switch cabinets, etc. 2. Power cable The main features of this kind of products are: Squeezing (winding) insulation layer outside the conductor, such as overhead insulated cable, or several core stranded (corresponding to the phase line, zero line and ground line of the power system), for example, more than two-core overhead insulated cables, or add a sheath layer, such as plastic/rubber cover wire and cable. The main technologies include drawing, stranding, insulation extrusion (wrapping), cable forming, armour, sheath extrusion, etc. Different process combinations of various products have certain differences. The products are mainly used in the transmission of strong electric energy in the transmission, distribution, transmission, transformation and power supply lines, with large current (tens of to thousands of) and high voltage (220V to 500kV and above). 3. Wires and cables for electrical equipment The main features of this kind of products are: there are a wide range of variety and specifications, wide range of application coverage, and the operating voltage is more than 1kV. In the face of special occasions, new products are constantly derived, such as fire-resistant cables, Flame Retardant Cables, low smoke halogen-free/low smoke halogen-free cables, termite-proof, mouse-proof cables, oil-resistant/cold-resistant/temperature-resistant/wear-resistant cables, medical/agricultural/mining cables, thin-walled wires, etc. 4. Communication cable and optical fiber From the simple telephone and telegraph cables in the past to thousands of pairs, coaxial cables, optical cables, data cables, and even combined communication cables. The structure and size of this kind of products are usually small and uniform, and the manufacturing precision is required to be high. 5. Electromagnetic wire (winding wire) It is mainly used for various motors, instruments and meters, etc. 4. What is the difference between wire and cable? In fact, there is no strict boundary between "wire" and "cable. Generally, products with small core number, small product diameter and simple structure are called wires, those without insulation are called bare wires, and others are called cables; Those with large conductor cross-sectional area (greater than 6 mm²) are called large wires, smaller (less than or equal to 6 mm²) is called small cord, and insulated electric conductor is also called covered wire. However, with the expansion of the scope of use, many varieties of "cable with Cable" and "cable with Cable". Therefore, there is no need to strictly distinguish. In daily habits, people call household covered wire and power cable for short. The wire is composed of one or several soft wires, and the outer bread has a light and soft protective layer; The cable is composed of one or several insulated covered wires, the outside is wrapped with a tough outer layer made of metal or rubber. Cables and wires are generally composed of core wire, insulation foreskin and protective sheath.

What is the difference between flame retardant cable and low smoke halogen free flame retardant cable?
What is the difference between flame retardant cable and low smoke halogen free flame retardant cable?
Low smoke halogen-free cable refers to the environment-friendly cable which is made of glue without halogen (F, Cl, Br, I, at), lead, cadmium, chromium, mercury and other environmental substances, and will not emit toxic smoke when burning. Low smoke and halogen-free cable, with superior flame retardant performance, little smoke when burning and no corrosive gas escaping, is widely used in nuclear power stations, subway stations, telephone exchanges and computer control centers, high-rise buildings, hotels, radio and television stations, important military facilities, petroleum platforms, etc., as well as places with concentrated personnel and low air density. Characteristics of low smoke halogen free wire: (1) The tensile strength of general PVC wires is greater than 1.05kgf/mm2, while that of low smoke halogen-free wires is greater than 1.2kgf/mm2; (2) It has good weather resistance (- 30 ℃ ~ 105 ℃); (3) It has good softness (hardness 80-90); (4) It has non mobility (because there is no need to add plasticizer in this product formula, so it will not have mobility); (5) There will be no toxic black smoke (a small amount of white smoke) during combustion; (6) The volume resistivity of PVC wire is 1012 ~ 1015 Ω / cm3, and that of LSZH wire is more than 1016 Ω / cm3; (7) It has good high-voltage resistance characteristics: PVC wires are generally resistant to more than 10kV, while low smoke halogen-free wires are up to more than 15kV; (8) It has good elasticity and viscosity. Flame retardant cable refers to the cable that the sample is burned under the specified test conditions, the flame spread is only within a limited range after removing the test fire source, and the residual flame or residual ignition can be extinguished within a limited time. The basic characteristic is: in case of fire, it may be burnt out and cannot operate, but it can prevent the spread of fire. Generally speaking, in case of wire fire, the combustion can be limited in a local scope, without spreading, and other equipment can be kept to avoid greater losses. The general method of flame retardant wire and cable is to add halides and metal oxides containing halogen in the sheath material. From the perspective of flame retardant, this is an excellent method. However, because these materials contain halides, a large amount of smoke and hydrogen halide gas are released during combustion, so the visibility in case of fire is low, which brings great challenges to the safe evacuation and fire fighting of personnel People are more likely to suffocate to death by toxic gases. Now, low smoke halogen-free cable is being promoted to replace the general flame retardant cable. Generally, the price of flame retardant cable is about 8500 yuan per ton, while the price of low smoke halogen-free cable is more expensive.

LSF vs LSHF (LSZH) - There is a Difference!
LSF vs LSHF (LSZH) - There is a Difference!
The main problem facing specifiers and contractors is the confusion over terminology and standards. Is LSHF (Low Smoke Halogen Free) the same as LSF (Low Smoke and Fume)? These terms are all widely used within the cable industry and we still encounter confusion from contractors surrounding the difference between LSF and LSHF cables.   LSF is a somewhat meaningless term applying to products that are often PVC based, which may emit up to 22% Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) gas when burnt and give off black smoke. Hydrogen Chloride gas can be deadly to people and damage sensitive equipment and black smoke can obscure exit routes in the event of a fire. By way of comparison, standard PVC gives off up to 28% HCl.   LSHF cables are those which emit no more than 0.5% HCl when burned. There is a significant difference between the two products and it is vital that specifiers know which they are choosing.   There has been a shift in recent years to using newly developed compounds that emit less of the harmful gases, particularly halogens, but still perform well in other respects. The difficulty for the cable buyer is that there are no specific standards for LSF cables. Ordinary PVC emits approximately 28% HCl, whilst modified PVC could give off a massive 22% HCl and still be sold as LSF.   If you want to be absolutely certain of what you are installing you should insist on a cable that uses insulation and sheathing materials that do not emit any Halogens and have reduced smoke emission properties. These are termed LSHF (Low Smoke Halogen Free), LS0H, LSZH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) or sometimes OHLS (Zero Halogen Low Smoke). These products must emit no more than 0.5% HCl.   Also, don’t accept standard PVC cables over-sheathed with an LSHF jacket or cables with PVC insulation. When the jacket burns through, the PVC inner sheath or insulation will give off poisonous gases in just the same way as if the LSHF jacket wasn’t there! Another common misunderstanding is that LSF or LSHF cable is also flame retardant. This is not necessarily true. The cables may spread the fire even though minimal fumes are being emitted.

What are the main factors that affect copper prices?
What are the main factors that affect copper prices?
The factors affecting copper prices include supply, demand, bulk commodity spot sales, market pressure, and current inventory levels etc.,   1. Supply and demand According to the principle of economics, when the supply of a commodity exceeds the demand, its price will fall, otherwise it will rise. At the same time, price will affect supply and demand in turn. When commodity prices rise, supply will increase and demand will decrease. On the contrary, demand will rise and supply will decrease. Therefore, price and supply and demand will affect each other. An important index reflecting the relationship between supply and demand is inventory, which is generally measured by stock exchange.   2. economic situation Copper is an important industrial raw material, and its demand is closely related to the economic situation. When the economy grows, the copper demand increases, which leads to the rise of copper price. When the economy is depressed, the copper demand shrinks and the copper price falls. 3. Import and export policy The import and export policy, especially the tariff policy, is an important means to balance the domestic supply and demand by adjusting the import and export cost of a commodity and controlling the import and export volume of a commodity. 4. Change of development trend of copper industry Consumption is the direct factor affecting copper price, and the development of copper industry is an important factor affecting consumption. With the rapid development of science and technology, the application scope of copper is constantly expanding, and copper has begun to play a role in the fields of medicine, biology, superconductivity and environmental protection. All of these will affect copper consumption in varying degrees. 5. Production cost of copper Production cost is the basis of measuring commodity price level. The production cost of copper includes smelting cost and refining cost. The most common economic analysis is to adopt "cash flow break even cost", which decreases with the increase of by-product value. 6. Trading direction of funds Although the fund industry has a long history, it did not develop vigorously until the 1990s. At the same time, the degree of fund participation in commodity futures trading has also increased significantly. From the evolution of copper market in recent ten years, the fund has played an important role in many big market. Of course, there are also similar exchange rates will have a certain impact on copper prices, but the fundamental factor determining the trend of copper prices is the relationship between supply and demand of copper
