7.1    GENERAL

Shielding of an electric power cable is accomplished by surrounding the insulation of a single conductor or assembly of insulated conductors with a grounded, conducting medium. This confines the electric field to the inside of this shield. Two distinct types of shields are used: metallic and a combination of nonmetallic and metallic.

The purposes of the insulation shield are to:
