Thermal Management for Laminated Busbars

March 10, 2024 6:33 pm Published by

Understanding thermal management issues and mitigation methods can be a critical factor for success with laminated busbars, especially when they are used in high-power applications.  If best practices are not followed, laminated busbars carrying high electrical currents can generate significant heat, which can pose both safety hazards and risk of equipment failure.

This new Applications Note from Storm Power Components provides an overview of key thermal management challenges, along with a discussion of how proper design, materials selection, cooling techniques and other mitigation factors can result in robust busbars that work within the overall product design to avoid risks of over heating.

Key topics include:

  • Material Selection
  • Cooling Techniques
  • Busbars as Heat Sinks
  • Design Optimization
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Modeling and Simulation
  • Temperature Monitoring
  • Optimizing for Low Inductance and Impedence
