Soil Drying Beside Buried Cable

Wind turbine farms are becoming an acceptable and common form of energy. Part of their construction includes buried cables to deliver the generated power from the wind turbines back to a station and ultimately into the power grid. One potential design consideration is evaluating the heat generated when an electric current passes through the cable.The rate of heat generation may cause the insulation power cables to fail when the cable temperature exceeds the design limit.

The example in this article illustrates the analysis of a typical scenario and was developed based on a research collaboration between the University of Wisconsin and SoilVision Systems Ltd.
