This paper deals with the shunt compensation design of long 380kV-50Hz XLPE cables by simulating a double-circuit partially cabled connection with the transmission length of 80km in the Dutch transmission system. The proposed procedure for shunt compensation sizing is fully elaborated in this paper. Four sizing criteria are used to find the minimum required size of compensation. All simulations are performed for different cable lengths. Moreover, different compensation arrangements including line-end and distributed arrangements are compared in terms of minimum required compensation size. Finally, the influence of mixed-line configuration, i.e. the number and the location of cable sections, on the minimum required compensation size is investigated by simulating five mixed-line configurations. All simulations are performed for two load-flow scenarios representing two extreme situations in the future planning of the Dutch transmission grid.
