Abstract

Some electronic systems require direct voltage power conductors of considerable thickness. In an improved bus, these conductors are laminated, the laminations are individually insulated, and the positive and negative laminations are interleaved to form a bus with a rectangular cross section. The bus has close capacitive coupling between the positive and negative laminations, and this capacitance helps to filter the alternating component of the voltage on the bus.
