Why Does Bus Topology Require Terminators?

A network topology refers to the geometric representation of how different nodes and devices are physically or logically interconnected to each other in a computer network. Physical topology is the configuration of computers, cables, and other peripherals while logical topology refers to the method used to pass information from one workstation to another.

Cable Bus Vs Bus Duct

Cable bus and bus duct share certain similarities in system weight, power consumption, medium voltage drop, and enclosure size. However, they also have their differences that make electrical engineers favor one system over the other. What is Cable Bus? A cable bus is an electrical system that is made up of a ventilated metal casing … Read more

Why Is Aluminum Used In A Busbar Instead Of Copper?

The evolution of the busbar system over the past few years has seen its increased usage and preference over hard-wired power distribution systems. Aluminum and copper are the two most common conductors used in electrical equipment. Of the two, copper is one of the oldest known metals used as a conductor of choice for most … Read more

What is an Infinite Busbar?

infinite busbar

An infinite busbar has a fixed voltage and frequency even after a variation in the load. A good example of an infinite busbar is alternators that operate parallel to each other. The parallel operations of the machine create a low synchronous impedance in the bus. An infinite bus is so powerful that it imposes its … Read more

What is Relay and Busbar?

Busbars and relays are crucial elements of an electric power system. Protection engineers need to safeguard a busbar against possible faults that may occur on them. A relay plays a significant role in bus bar protection by sending signals as soon as faults occur in the power system. It is used in high-impedance-based applications within … Read more

What Is Busbar Protection?

busbar

A busbar is a metallic strip that distributes local high electrical power. It is housed inside switchgear, panel board, and busway enclosures. The main purpose of a busbar is to collect electric power from feeders and transfer it to outgoing feeders. It collects electrical power in one station or location. On the other hand, busbar … Read more

How Much Voltage Drop Can a Busbar Withstand?

Busbars are used in electrical power distribution systems and their main function is to ensure that the current does not exceed the normal operating range of equipment. The quality of a busbar depends on its cross-section area, material type, design and if it is air-cooled or water-cooled. Voltage drop refers to the difference between what … Read more

Why Isn’t Cable Car Used as Means of Transportation?

cable car

Cable cars were developed to help make transport easier and reduce road congestion. However, their use as a means of transport has diminished with time. In fact, they are now used as historical features for tourists to view and enjoy. Actually, operational cable car systems are minimal. The best-known existing cable car system is in … Read more
