Measurement of contact resistance for copper and aluminium conductors

Measurement of contact resistance for copper and aluminium conductors
Measurement of contact resistance for copper and aluminium conductors
During manufacturing of multi-strand cables the conductors are subjected to twisting and pressing which result in a creation of contact regions between individual wires. The resistivity of such contact regions differs from the resistivity of copper or aluminium. In this paper the resistivity is established by comparing measurements of resistivity with simulations using a finite element method. The non-homogeneity of the contact imprint has been accounted for and the presented results show the dependence of the contact resistance on several parameters, including compression force, imprint depth, intersecting angle and stranding pitch.

Abstract

During manufacturing of multi-strand cables the conductors are subjected to twisting and pressing which result in a creation of contact regions between individual wires. The resistivity of such contact regions differs from the resistivity of copper or aluminium. In this paper the resistivity is established by comparing measurements of resistivity with simulations using a finite element method. The non-homogeneity of the contact imprint has been accounted for and the presented results show the dependence of the contact resistance on several parameters, including compression force, imprint depth, intersecting angle and stranding pitch.
