As stated on Circuit Globe, an electrical bus bar serves as a conductor or a group of conductors, collecting electric power from incoming feeders and distributing it to outgoing feeders. It acts as an essential electrical junction where incoming and outgoing electrical currents meet, simplifying power collection at one location.

Busbar Features and Types

The bus bar system incorporates isolators and circuit breakers to disconnect the faulty section during faults. Busbars come in various shapes such as rectangular, cross-sectional, and round, with copper and aluminum being the primary manufacturing materials.

Key Busbar Types and Arrangements

Common bus-bar sizes include 40×4mm, 40×5mm, 50×6mm, 60×8mm, 80×8mm, and 100×10mm. Different factors like reliability, flexibility, and cost influence the selection of the bus bar arrangement.
