June 2015 Versailles Congress Centre - JICABLE'15 - 9th International Conference on Power Insulated Cables

Lucien Deschamps

Dear colleagues and friends

Welcome to Jicable'15 the 9th International Conference on Insulated Power Cables.

Jicable'84 - Jicable'15: It has been more than thirty years since the first Jicable conference--thirty years during which more than one thousand papers have documented the remarkable technological and industrial evolution of insulated power cables. 1984 marked the beginning of the development of high voltage cables with synthetic insulation. This technology is now widely used in AC and DC, for transmission and distribution of energy in terrestrial and submarine networks.

The mission of Jicable is clear: to share the latest advances in the development of cable technology in order to address current and future energy challenges. The development of networks is a key element of the energy transition imposed by the search for a sustainable development of the planet. Insulated power cables are essential components of networks and of the smart grids of the future in particular by allowing their integration into the environment. There is also the perspective potential of direct current.

Special cables are experiencing notable advancements: fire behavior, radiation resistance, etc. A session of JIcable'15 is dedicated to new cables for avionics and in particular for electric aircraft.

The Jicable'15 conference continues the tradition of the last thirty years; we note that there has been a 30% increase in the number of papers compared to the last conference.

Here are a few highlights of Jicable'15:

I wish you an enjoyable stay in Versailles and Paris and fruitful exchanges.
