Significance of “Half Resistance” column under the “Shunt Admittance” tab for Cable modeling?

The “Half Resistance” column seen in the “Shunt Admittance” tab is not the same as the Resistance values entered in the “Impedance” tab. These Half-Resistance values are due to the leakage current through the insulators (See image below) and it is usually only provided by the manufacturer upon request. Do not enter the Half-Resistance value unless manufacturer provides it.
