Standards & Guides
Novinium is committed to the highest level of transparency and industry standardization.
When the National Electric Energy Testing Research and Applications Center (NEETRAC) expressed interest in a controlled experiment to compare the post-injection performance of all commercially available technologies, Novinium supported the effort in every way and was the only global supplier to participate.
When the IEEE Power and Energy Society’s Insulated Conductors Committee formed a discussion group (DG C30) and requested a draft rehabilitation and rejuvenation guide, Novinium was uniquely qualified to prepare it, and the only global supplier to provide one.
The Novinium Draft Guide for Rehabilitation and Rejuvenation of Extruded Dielectric Cable Rated 2.5kV through 46kV is the first of its kind. We welcome feedback and will update it continuously to improve its value to the circuit owners that use it.
The guide provides:
- A comprehensive view of all the issues to be considered when choosing a rehabilitation technology and delivery vendor(s)
- An extensive definition section to help circuit owners understand the language of rehabilitation
- An overview of safety considerations
- An introduction to post-injection reliability issues
- An introduction to the technology for those inclined to understand the chemistry of rejuvenation
- A complete model specification, suitable for editing into your own RFP, RFQ, or specification
The guide’s annexes include an extensive bibliography, a draft standard for leak-proof injection devices, and relevant Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Rural Utilities Service (RUS) rulings on the capitalization of various rejuvenation technologies.
Novinium’s founder and CEO, Glen Bertini, also contributed to the IEEE Guide for Detection, Mitigation, and Control of Concentric Neutral Corrosion in Medium-Voltage Underground Cables (IEEE 1617).
