busbar

[′bəs‚bär]
(electricity)
A heavy, rigid metallic conductor, usually uninsulated, used to carry a large current or to make a common connection between several circuits. Also known as bus.

busbar

A heavy, rigid electrical conductor (usually uninsulated copper or aluminum) which serves as an interconnection between power-handling devices (such as switches and circuit breakers) or as a common connection between several circuits.

busbar

busbar
Busbar with distribution points.
The main conductor in an electrical system linking all generators and/or batteries and distributing power to all operative branches. It is essentially a metallic bar used to carry a large current and to make common connections between several circuits. See also battery bus.

And even when some cells are in deep shadow, it doesn't affect the sensitivity of the rest of the active module, as it does in traditional BUS BAR technology.
The assets specialize in fabricating flexible power cable assemblies and custom bus bars used in a wide range of current and heat transfer applications, including power transfer devices for computers, industrial electrical power distribution, transportation, aerospace and telecommunications.
b] are the enclosure and three phase bus bar power losses at rated loads in watts/m (Btu/h/ft).
This state-of-the-art solution can be used to apply small pieces of adhesive tape for attaching bus bars -- helping save up to 100,000 euros a year in adhesive materials alone, compared to other system.
The method most favored by Eldre begins with a self-clinching fastener mounted on the bus bar.
The capacity of bus bar has been increased at three grid stations including 132kv Gulshan Ravi, 132kv Sheikupura and 132kv Nankana.
The additional Bus Bar in conventional silicon solar cells (with respect to 3BB/ 4BB) facilitates a uniform distribution of stress, making 5BB cells more durable.
Tables 3 and 4 show the horizontal & vertical bus bar, enclosure, and total heat loss resistances for low voltage (600V) and medium voltage (5-15Kv) switchgear considering copper bus bars, galvanized sheet steel enclosures, 60 Hz frequency, 40[degrees]C (104[degrees]F) ambient temperature, and 65[degrees]C (149[degrees]F) bus bar temperature rise.
This construction simplifies the total installation and results in several benefits: savings in cabling; reduced line currents and simpler braking arrangements; energy distribution over the common DC bus bar, which can be used for motor-to-motor braking without the need for a braking chopper or a regenerative supply unit; reduced component counts; increased reliability; and space savings; and there is no need for a separate motor control center (MCC).
A further expansion took place in 1966 when the Eminence, Kentucky plant was opened to produce electrical copper bus bar.
In every bus bar application where clinch hardware could prove advantageous, Eldre specifies and installs standard PEM self-clinching nuts and studs in a variety of lengths and thread sizes as part of the package, whether to achieve mechanical mating of components or terminations.
To use four bus bars, however, each bus bar needs to be narrowed so that the cell can collect enough sunlight, which makes it difficult to connect each cell in the interconnecting wire soldering process with automated equipment.
