Busbars (also referred to as bus bar) are fascinating feats of engineering making complex power distribution simpler, more affordable and flexible. The main purpose of busbars is to conduct a substantial current of electricity and are typically housed inside switchgear, panel boards or busways.
Rather than branching the main supply at one location, busbars allow new circuits to branch off anywhere along the route of the busway. A busbar is used to connect high voltage equipment at electrical switchyards, and low voltage equipment in battery banks but also prominent in the automotive and defence sectors.
How Do Busbars Work?
Electrical busbars are conductors or a group of conductors used for collecting electric power from incoming feeders. From there, they distribute the power to the outgoing feeders. In laymen’s terms, it is a type of electrical junction where all incoming and outgoing electrical currents meet. The bus bar system has an isolator and the circuit breaker which works as follows. In the event of a fault, the circuit breaker trips and the faulty section of the busbar is easily disconnected from the circuit.
Applications Of Busbars
Busbars are produced in a variety of shapes, such as flat strips, solid bars, or rods. They are typically composed of copper, brass or aluminium as solid or hollow tubes. When space is limited or alternative electrical distribution is required, busbars are the go-to for many industries.
Benefits Of Using Busbars
Busbars have several benefits and are crucial in electrical distribution systems. This is especially the case when simplifying the process of electrical power distribution, reducing overall cost while allowing for greater flexibility.
Busbars may be more expensive than a wiring harness but they last longer and don’t require regular replacement. They distribute power more efficiently, thus, reducing energy consumption which is particularly important for many 21st century businesses.
They’re also easily adaptable for renewable energy integration while offering extreme versatility for easy customisation for many purposes. Busbars can withstand external weather conditions well, making them the perfect solution for electrical substations or switchyards. Even with costly installation, busbars are a cost-effective solution, especially when developing a new system.
