 BUSBAR DIMENSION CALCULATION FOR 1000 A Reference documents: Copper Development Association SWITCH BOARD REFERENCE : MAIN PCC - Busbar Rating - 1000 A Busbar dimensions: Width = 50 mm Thickness = 12 mm X 1 RUN 1. Approximate DC Current Rating for Single Flat Bars (Apply Formula 4, Page 11 ) As per Copper Development Association Hand Book, approximate current rating of busbar shall be carried out by following methods. I=7.73x A 0.5 x p 0.39 Formula 4 Page 11 I = current carrying capacity, A A = Busbar cross section area, mm2. p = Busbar perimeter of conductor in mm. Hence, I dc = 7.73x600^.5x124^0.39 = 1,241 A For Single Rectangular Section Bar 2. Approximate AC current rating for Single flat bar 50 X 12 mm (Page 11, 13 & 37 ) I ac = I dc /(Rf/Ro) 0.5 R o1000 m = ∂ 20 * L/A A = cross section area, cm 2 L = 1000 m ∂ 20 = resistivity of copper at 20 °C, 1.724 µΩ cm (Page 11) R o1000 m = (1.724*100*1000)/(5.0*1.2) = 28733.3 µΩ Hence, (f/R o ) 0.5 = (50*1000000/28733.33) 0.5 Where f - Frequenzy 50 Hz = 42 Rf/Ro = 1.12 (from page 13, Fig. 7) [Skin effect Ratio] (Rf/Ro) 0.5 = (1.12) 0.5 = 1.0583 Hence, I ac = 1240.76/1.058301 I ac = 1172 A For Single Rectangular Section Bar 3. Approximate AC current rating for 1 No flat bars of 50 x 12 mm = 1172 A CONCLUSION: FINAL CURRENT CARRYING CAPACITY OF THE ABOVE BUSBAR IS SUFFICIENT TO CARRY THE REQUIRED BUSBAR RATING OF 1000 A.
