The busbar trunking systems in the Sivacon 8PS portfolio have been used successfully in wind turbines for several years. The LDM-P busbar trunking system has now been added to the product family. This system is destined for use in solar power plants where extremely high amounts of energy are transmitted in very limited space. The benefits of the technology over cable-based solutions are particularly apparent in this area. These include fast planning and installation, current intensities up to 7,000 amperes (A), and exact adaptation to other necessary products, such as inverters and transformers. Siemens also provides comprehensive support during the planning phase and enables the customer to achieve integrated and thus very efficient power distribution.
