Paper Abstract

Because of their immunity from electromagnetic interference, optical fibres are being used increasingly in composite cables which perform the dual roles of power transmission and data communication. Applications in railway telecommunications, coal mining, underwater cables and overhead power lines are described, also the design methods utilised to ensure fibre protection and high optical performance within these complex cable structures.
