Introduction
The rigid bus in out-door substation is primarily supported on Bus Post Insulators. These bus post insulators are hence subjected to sustain all types of stresses on bus conductor owing to electrically and mechanically originated forces. The principal forces on the bus post insulator are as follows a. Short circuit current force on the bus conductor. b. Wind force on the bus conductor. c. Wind force on the insulator stack. d. Weight of the bus conductor span supported by the bus post insulator. Since the forces on the bus-conductors are transmitted to the bus post insulators, the strength of the insulator must be considered. With various bus configurations, insulators may be required to withstand cantilever, compressive, tensile and torsional forces. However, only the cantilever force, which is a function of the effective conductor span length supported by the bus post insulator, have been regarded significant and considered for design.
