I have a situation where we need to splice a length of shielded 8kV rated cable to non-shielded 5 kV cable for a failure repair on a 4160 volt system. Does anyone know if the 8kv cable can be treated similarly to the unshielded cable within the splice or will excessive voltage stresses be present without properly terminating the shielded cable conductors? The cable and splice kit manufacturers do not have information available to address this situation.
