About Busbar Current Calculator (Formula)
The Busbar Current Calculator is a tool used to determine the current-carrying capacity of a busbar, which is a metal strip or bar used for conducting electricity.
The calculator uses the following formula to calculate the busbar current:
Busbar Current = Width * Thickness * Material Carry Capacity Factor
The inputs required for the calculation are:
- Width: The width of the busbar in millimeters (mm).
- Thickness: The thickness of the busbar in millimeters (mm).
- Material Carry Capacity Factor: The material-specific factor indicating the current-carrying capacity per square millimeter (amps/mm^2) for the given material.
To use the calculator, you need to provide the values for width, thickness, and the material carry capacity factor. Once you click the “Calculate” button, the formula is applied, and the busbar current is calculated and displayed.
The busbar current is an important parameter to consider when designing electrical systems to ensure that the busbar can handle the current load without exceeding its capacity. The calculator simplifies the process by providing a quick and accurate calculation of the busbar current based on the given inputs.
