Cable Bus Systems, the critical conduits for power transmission, necessitate rigorous analysis to ensure optimal performance, safety, and longevity. Given the increasing demands of modern power grids and infrastructure, comprehending the thermal characteristics of these systems is of utmost importance. To address this, we undertake a meticulous Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) thermal analysis on four distinct Cable Bus Systems to ascertain the temperature distribution across all their components.


The operational conditions for these systems are crucial to the assessment. Specifically, the current that courses through these cables is a steady-state three-phase AC current. Furthermore, the system operates at a unity power factor, which, for the uninitiated, signifies that the current and voltage waveforms align perfectly or are in-phase. Such in-phase operation ensures efficient power transmission with minimal energy losses, but it also has implications on the thermal behavior of the cables.


The environmental parameters too play an indispensable role. With an ambient air temperature of 40°C, understanding how this external thermal influence interacts with the intrinsic heating from the cables becomes paramount. The interplay of these factors — the steady current, the unity power factor, and the ambient temperature — defines the thermal dynamics of the Cable Bus Systems.


In essence, through this comprehensive CFD thermal analysis, our goal is to unravel the thermal performance of these systems, paving the way for enhanced reliability, safety, and efficiency in power transmission.
