  • Which Is Better, Stranded or Solid Wire, And Why?

    Which Is Better, Stranded or Solid Wire, And Why?

    Wire harnesses and cable assemblies, among other electrical power distribution equipment use solid and stranded wires. While stranded wire is made up of multiple thinner wires twisted together to form a bundle, solid wires have a solid core. Each has unique advantages, and the best option for a given application depends on the particular needs…

  • Why Does Bus Topology Require Terminators?

    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. Learn More…

  • Cable Bus Vs Bus Duct

    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…

  • Why Is Aluminum Used In A Busbar Instead Of Copper?

    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…

  • What is an Infinite Busbar?

    What is an 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…

  • What is Relay and Busbar?

    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…

  • What Is Busbar Protection?

    What Is Busbar Protection?

    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…
