HIGH VOLTAGE INSULATED ELECTRICAL CABLE WITH LAYER CF IRRADIATED SEMICONDUCTIVE ETHYLENE COPOLYMER Filed Jan. 2, 1964 ff? ventons: Robert A. Ward, A//e)? /1 Tow/7e,

y 7776/)" Aorney.

United States Patent This invention relates to electrical conductors and to insulation therefor. More particularly, it relates to such insulated conductors which are particularly useful for high voltage electrical applications.

Insulated conductors used for high voltage installations are particularly subject to corona discharge which occurs at the surfaces of insulation or when gas in voids or cavities within the insulation of such conductors is ionized. Such corona leads to deterioration of the insulation and its eventual failure.

Among the sernicondu-ctive grading insulating media previously used for such high voltage conductors were relatively thick elastomeric tapes wound about the conductor. While the electrically conductive grading material in such installations despite its bulk serves its purpose where the tape is actually in good contact with the conductor, the thickness of the tape, to fulfill strength requirements, inherently produces voids at points of overlapping, fostering the production of corona and defeating the purpose of the grading mate-rial. The same deficiency exists in such thick tapes also when the semiconductive tape is used over the main ground insulation or next to any outer shield or ground which may be present. Among the other types of tapes which have been used for such semiconducting purposes are the various fabric tapes which are impregnated with semiconductive materials such as graphite, carbon black, conductive resins and the like. As in the .case of elastomeric tapes, the -fabric tapes inherently produce voids when lapped over the conductor, or when applied as a sheet in the form of a tube. The fabric tapes in general do not have as good adhesion and hence as good contact with the insulation. The fabric Ibased tapes are also deficient in that if the ground insulation overcoat is applied by extrusion, the heat and pressure of the extrusion often rupture the cloth-or cause migration of the semiconductive particles within the cloth. The prior art semiconductive tapes and insulations are also subject to the defect that while they can be filled with carbon black or other conductive materials to a degree, the amount of such conductive filler which can be tolerated is generally limited so that the tailoring of resistivities to particular installations is often dilficult if not impossible.

From the above, it will be quite apparent that there is a need [for insulated electrical conductors which are capable of afiording a wide range of resistivities, at the same time providing an insulation structure which is corona resistant, stable and unitary in character but which at the same time can be easily removed for splicing purposes.

A primary object, therefore, of the present invention is to provide cables having a composite insulation which is particularly resistant to corona formation and is possessed of the other above advantages.

Briefly, the invention relates to insulated electrical conductors or cables which are insulated with a first taped or sheet layer of semiconducting material comprising copolymers of polyethylene and mono-unsaturated materials as herein more specifically set forth along with a ground insulation of extruded polyethylene. In some applications, where indicated, the polyethylene ground in sulation may be surrounded by a suitable second tape or insulation.

3,259,688 Patented July 5, 1966 "ice sheet layer of semiconductive film and, where indicated, the polyethylene ground insulation may have thereover another layer of polyethylene copoly-mer material as described above which is electrically graded in desired manner and over which a metallic shield is wrapped or which is connected suitably to a ground. In some instances, the shield can be directly over the polyethylene ground 'Even when the copolymer outer layer has been finally heat shrunk in place, it can nevertheless still be unwound or stripped for easy splicing.

Those features of the invention which are believed to be novel are set forth with particularity in the claims appended hereto. The invention will, however, be better understood and further advantages and objects thereof appreciated from a consideration of the following description and the drawing in which FIGS. 1 through 3 show various typical configurations, not to scale, of the present insulate-d cables.

The copolymers of polyethylene which are particularly useful in connection \with the invention are those set forth in copending application S.N. 310,463, file-d September 20, 1963. Among such materials are the copolymers of polyethylene with mono-unsaturated materials such as vinyl group-containing materials, including the vinyl esters such as vinyl acetate, the various acrylate materials such as the alkyl acrylates, including methyl, ethyl and hexyl acrylates, among others, and mono-unsaturated olefins such as propylene, butenes, pentenes, etc, which are used in such proportions with the ethylene as to produce partially crystalline thermoplastics as opposed to elastomers. It is necessary that these copolymerized materials be mono-unsaturated materials since any higher degree of unsaturation promotes undesirable cross-linking during preparation of the material which detracts from the flexibility and elasticity and other physical characteristics of the final product. The ethylene and mono-unsaturated material is copolyrnerized in manners well known to those skilled in the art and such products are commercially available as Union Carbide- DP DB6 l69, DPDA-6'l68, DQDA-3270, DQDA-726 8, DQDA-3269 and Du Pont ELVAX150 and ELVAX-250, among others.

The above materials are particularly characterized by the fact that they can accept relatively large quantities of conductive fillers as well as non-conductive fillers. For example, it has been found that such irradiated copolymers as those described above will accept up to and over or more by weight of filler having a particle size of from about 10 to 20 mp based on the weight of the copolymer without undesirable loss of flexibility or other characteristics which are necessary for a suitable insulating tape. For fillers of larger particle size of from 500 to 700 m up to about 400% by weight of filler can be accepted by the material without loss of flexibility. Mixtures of such grading materials can also be used. The filled copolymers which are used as the semiconducting or electrically grading layer are fully irradiated or irradiated to the point where they are form stable at temperatures of 200 C. and upward which are experienced when the polyethylene ground insulation is extruded over them. They can, of course, be fully oriented or stretched in which case the shrinkage of the tape when the overlayer is extruded on will cause shrinking of the inner layer and heat sealing which eliminates any potentially corona-forming voids. Alternatively, as above, the copolymer grading layer can be irradiated just to the point of form stability under extrusion temperature conditions and have added thereto a chemical cross-linking agent such as the various peroxides disclosed in British Patent 910,204 and US. Patent 2,916,481, among others, which will complete the cure of the material under the extrusion temperatures polyolefins derived from monoolefins such as polyethyl ene, polybutylene, butyl rubber, ethylene-propylene rubber and blends and copolymers and terpolymers of such materials which are well known to those skilled in the art, and where polyethylene is mentioned herein it will be understood that any and all of such materials are included. Such polyethylene materials are sold under the name of Alathon by E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, Inc., by the Bakelite Company under the designations DE- 2400, DYNH, etc., and by the Phillips Petroleum Company under the designations Marlex, 20, 50, etc. Butyl rubber is a copolymer of polyisobutylene and isoprene is sold by Enjay Chemical Company as is EPR ethylenepropylene copolymer. The polyolefin ground insulation may be used as such, or it may be cross-linked by irradiation or chemical curing agents which are activated by the heat of extrusion. Filled polyolefin materials can also be used, and among such fillers are the silica fillers of various sizes and types such as aerogels, fumed silica, metal silicate, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide carbonates such as carbamate, magnesium carbonate, carbon black and various carbides. Semiconducting fillers are here used in smaller amounts which will not impart conductivity to any extent.

The graded or semiconductive materials of the present invention are preferably provided in the form of tapes or sheets which are typically from about 2 mils to about 25 mils thick and which are filled with varying amounts of carbon black or other semiconducting or conductive material to provide resistivities for any particular application. A typical 10 mil thick material has a tensile strength of about 15 lbs. per inch of width, a yield point of 8 to 10 lbs. per inch of width and an ultimate elongation up to about 300%. Resistivities measured at room temperature may typically range from about 5 ohm-cm. to 500 ohm-cm. or more. For example, when a material, specifically Bakelite polyethylene-ethyl acrylate copolymer DPDB6169, was filled with 25 parts of carbon black per 100 parts of copolymer, the resistivity was found to be 85 ohm-cm. When 40 parts of carbon black were used, the resistivity was lowered to 28 ohm-cm. At 60 parts of carbon black the resistivity was 4.5 ohm-cm. and at 75 parts the resistivity was 1.5 ohm-cm. These amounts of filler and even larger amounts up to four times the weight of the base material itself are accepted without embrittle- .ment or prohibitive stilfening and are thus distinguished from the normal polyethylene polymers.

While the grading tape described above can be oriented or stretched and irradiated so that under the heat of extrusion of the ground insulation it will be hrunk about the conductor, it is sometimes preferred to cross-link such tapes by high energy electron irradiation to the point where they are thermoset or form stable and will not rupture under the conditions of heat and pressure experienced during extrusion but at the same time the irradiation dosage should be low enough so that sealing of the tape to itself and to the overlying polyethylene extruded material is not inhibited. Generally speaking, for the copolymers of the present invention radiation levels of 4 to 20 megaroentgens can be used with the preferable radiation level being between 6 and megaroentgens at potentials of from 5x10 to 2 10 electron volts. It was found, for example, that when from 3.5 to 25 megaroentgens were used to irradiate a 5 mil thick tapeof the above description, the tensile strength at 150 C. ranged from about 26 to 530 p.s.i. with heat sealing to itself and to overlying polyethylene occurring at a temperature of 150 C. and a pressure of 10 p.s.i.

Any-of the usual well known methods of extrusion can be used. Typically, the temperatures of such extrusion range from about 180 C. to about 260 C. and the pressure from about 100 p.s.i. to 1000 p.s.i.

It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that one of the primary advantages of the present invention lies in the fact that the relatively thin taped layers which are used herein provide a definite size advantage over the much thicker extruded semiconductive layers of the prior art.

Referring to the drawing, there are shown several e bodiments of the present invention, it being realized, of course, that others will occur to those skilled in the art. Shown in FIG. 1 is .an insulated cable 1 having a central conductor 2 with a coating of the present sem-iconductive tape insulation 3 and ground insulation 4 of polyethylene type material. Shown in FIG. 2 is an insulated cable structure 5 with central conductor 6 with semiconductive insulation 7 thereover. A ground insulation '8 of polyethylene or polyolefin type material as described overlies sem iconductive layer 7. A further semiconductive layer '9 is placed about the extruded ground insulation layer 8. A still further modification of the invention is shown in FIG. 3, wherein insulated cable structure 10 having a central conductor 11 has a taped. layer of semicond-uotive material 12 and an overlying extruded layer .of polyethylene ground insulation 13. Grounding shield 14 is provided as an outer sheath.

The following examples will illustrate the invention, it being understood that they are not to be taken as limiting in any way.

EXAMPLE 1 A number 2-7 stranded conductor had extruded thereon a layer 220 mils thick of uncross-linked polyethylene with no semiconductive layer. The corona star-ting voltage .of this cable varied from about 1,000 to 4,000 volts.

EXAMPLE 2 The cable of Example 1 was tubular wrapped with a layers 5 mils thick of copolymer DPDB-6l69 which was filled with 67 parts of XC-72 Cabot carbon black having a particle size of from about 10 to 20 mg, the carbon black being present in the amount of 67 parts by weight per parts of copolymer. Over-lying this semiconductive layer, there was extruded 220 mil-s of uncross-linked polyethylene. When tested as in Example 1, the corona starting voltage was found to be 35,000 volts.

EXAMPLE 3 A conductor similar to that of Example 1 was overlain with a carbon black filled fabric semiconductive wrap which was in turn overlain by 220 mils of crosslinked polyethylene. The corona starting voltage for this cable was found to be about 12,000 volts.

EXAMPLE 4 Example 1 was repeated except that cross-linked polyethylene was used as the insulation. The corona starting voltage was once again firom 1,000 to 4,000 vol-ts.

EXAMPLE 5 The conductor of Example 1 was tubular wrapped with a semiconductive layer as in Example 2 and overlain by extrusion with about 220 mils of cross-linked polyethylone which was in turn overlain with 5 mils of the present semiconductive tape of Example 2. The corona starting voltage of this cable was found .to range from about 22,000 to 28,000 volts.

There are provided by the present invention insulated cable structures having composite insulation, the elements of which are characterized by similar coefficient of expansion and which are firmly bound one to the other, thus substantially increasing the corona starting voltage. The insulated cables are also characterized by compact size as compared to prior art wholly extruded composite insulations and the semiconductive elements can be loaded with large amounts of .semicondluctive materials to provide a wide range of insulated cables which are useful for varying installations. The tape materials of the present invention are also particularly useful in that they may he stripped or sealed to facilitate splicing where indicated.
