Abstract

Flexible bus bars designed for high current capacity require the joining of braided copper cable to heavy copper blocks with a low contact resistance between the copper cable and the copper block. This is not possible with helically wound strands that form the cable and results in a non-uniform and inconsistent brazed joint.
