ADSS (All dielectric self supporting) cables are generally installed on high voltage transmission lines and mostly used under different environmental effects, such as temperature, wind, UV radiation, etc. In this study, wind affect on ADSS cables was investigated by using dry band arcing (IEEE 1222 Electrical surface degradation) test method. A wind source was implemented to the test setup to evaluate the performance of PE (Poly-ethylene) cable jacket on ADSS cable under different wind speeds. Test results indicate that life time of the ADSS cable decreases while the wind speed is increasing.
