RaySheath Link Box Solution

Underground medium voltage networks connecting wind farms and PV parks with high voltage substations are subject to damage from circulating currents in the screen of the cable and lightning strikes that can negatively impact the reliability of a park’s connection to the transmission grid.

Raycap’s RaySheath is a tailor-made link box developed to protect the sheath of the medium voltage cables. RaySheath can be used either for cross-bonding or single-point bonding schemes and relies on the RaySVL, a Strikesorb-based Sheath Voltage Limiter. RaySVL features unique characteristics since it withstands short-circuit currents and direct lightning strikes offering a very low residual voltage, in contrast with conventional SVLs.

Raycap undertakes the cross-bonding study of the interconnection system of a wind or PV park to the high voltage substation and develops tailor-made RaySVLs appropriate for each specific grid, to withstand the short circuit current, in contrast with conventional approaches.
