The Fall 1999 ICC Educational Program covered the basic principles common to all cable accessory design. This includes electrical stress control both geometric and Hi-K stress grading. Various types of current connections, compression, spring and threaded were reviewed. The principles of interference fit both slip-on and shrinkable were also examined. Two product specific areas, loadbreak connectors and terminators were also covered. For loadbreak connectors, switching and fault-close design criteria were reviewed. Terminator properties such as track resistance, hydrophobicity and flashover distance were discussed.
