Cable Engineering

AEIC, Cable Engingeering

Areas of Focus

The Cable Engineering Committee works to ensure that the transition to a modern electric grid is safe and cost-effective for all stakeholders. We do this by providing technical specifications and guides relating to the quality, physical design, testing requirements, operating conditions, and new developments of underground cables. These documents cover medium and high voltage underground cables and cable accessories that are used for electric utility power delivery systems.

The Committee meets three times a year, both in-person and virtually. Additionally, the Committee interfaces with major manufacturers of electrical cable to ensure the highest quality and economical use of underground cables and accessories.

Committee members generally are engineers and specialists, but can also include managers and supervisors.
