Very high temperature HVDC busbar (180 - 240°) with reliable and cost effective technology

Project description

Advanced busbar technology for high-temperature applications

Power distribution systems in more electric aircraft are expected to deal with high voltages and temperatures. With EU funding of the VILB project, France-based company Auxel and the LSE Research Laboratory based in the United Kingdom will jointly design and demonstrate a technology that can effectively address these challenges. The new technology, called varnished and impregnated laminated busbar (VILB), is a real breakthrough as it is based on an entirely new strategy for insulating laminated busbars. This process is expected to make the laminated busbars resistant to higher temperatures (240 °C) and partial discharges.
