Bus Bar Monitoring for Overheating

Bus bars are uninsulated strips of a highly conductive metal such as copper or aluminum. As they have lower electrical resistance than insulated power cables, they can carry large electrical currents and are thus suitable for use in power distributions systems in power plants, substations, factories, and data centers. Bus bars are also used in power distribution boards. Bus bars offer great flexibility as they are made of highly malleable metals that can be easily shaped to suit any number of facility layouts.

Abnormal overheating of bus bars

Bus bars are bolted, clamped, or welded to each other and to other apparatuses. If a bolt or clamp comes lose or a welded joint fails, abnormal heating may occur at that location due to an increase in the electrical resistance. The overheating further increases the electrical resistance and can lead to a burnout or even a fire.
