This article proposes a method of constructing a PSCAD model suitable for switching studies in a system containing long HVAC cables. The transmission network connection to the 215 MW offshore wind farm Horns Rev 2 is used as a
case study. The connection to Horns Rev 2 consists of two land cable sections with a total length of 57.7 km and a 42 km long submarine cable. The submarine cable is a three phase type of cable, and three single conductor cables are used for the land cable. Methods of recalculating the physical cable parameters, given in the data sheet, to parameters suitable for the cable model
used in PSCAD are given. Results obtained using the model are compared to full scale measurement of the energization of the system, and good agreement is found. The influence of different simulation parameters are examined; amongst them the modeling of the screen, the relative permittivity, and the use of different
cable models.
