Scope and object
This part of IEC 60092 is applicable to shipboard and offshore power cables with extruded solid insulation, conductor and core screening, having a voltage rating of 3,6/6 (7,2) kV, 6/10 (12) kV, 8,7/15 (17,5) kV, 12/20 (24) kV, 18/30 (36) kV (see Clause 4) and intended for fixed installations. The voltage rating for shipboard use is limited to 8,7/15(17,5) kV.
The various types of power cables are given in Clause 8. The constructional requirements and test methods are expected to comply with those indicated in IEC 60092-350, unless otherwise specified in this standard.
The object of this standard is:
- to standardize cables whose safety and reliability is ensured when they are installed in accordance with the requirements of IEC 60092-352 for shipboard use
- to lay down standard manufacturing requirements and characteristics of such cables directly or indirectly bearing on safety;
- to specify test methods for checking conformity with those requirements.
NOTE 1 Only radial field cables are covered.
NOTE 2 IEC 61892-4, Mobile and fixed offshore units - Electrical installations - Part 4: Cables is under consideration by TC18.
