Bus Bar Calculator is a free-access web-solution to precisely compute the key electrical specifications of laminated bus bars in the context of power converter design. Bus Bar Calculator provides all the values to help designers make bus bar in a wide variety of converters.
Bus Bar Calculator can handle various converter topologies: DC/AC, AC/DC, DC/DC with 2-level and multilevel.
The operating point must also be filled to allow the software to correctly calculate the voltage and current in each branch.
Depending on the application, the converter doesn’t suffer from the same environmental constraints and design requirement changes. The conductive materials, comprising the bus bar and converter environments, must be entered to consider all the constraints together, from the very beginning of converter design phase, and thus optimizing the complete system.
Bus Bar Calculator is based on GT-PowerForge™, a multi-physics solver developed by Gamma Technologies, handling electrical, thermal, and magnetic physics to cover the complexity of a power converter design. Bus Bar Calculator® is based on a frequential Modified Nodal Analysis (MNA) resolution that provides accurate simulation results within seconds.
