In the electric power distribution field of these days, cable joints are required to be low in cost, easier to install, take less time to install, and applicable to more space-limited places. Against this background, the authors have developed cold-shrinkable straight-through joints for use specifically with 22-kV XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) cables. The developed joints and accessories proved, through the initial and long-term evaluation, to have satisfactory performance, offering outstanding ease of installation.
