•A power cable, in simple terms, can be defined as an assembly of two or more electrical conductors, usually held together with an overall sheath. This assembly is used for transmission of electrical power from one point to another. Cables typically consist of 3 major components: conductors, insulation, and a protective jacket.
•Power cables generally use stranded copper or aluminium conductors, although small power cables may use solid conductors as well.
•Submarine power cables are cables meant for the transmission of power below the surface of the water. These are primarily used for connecting offshore platforms to on-shore refineries.
