... to edit letters for style and content. Introduction This paper evaluates the life of a 35-kV power cable for connecting a single-anchor leg mooring (SALM) buoy with a deepwater, offshore platform. This system is unique in that the cable flexes constantly during compression as the mooring buoy moves...
