Abstract
Electrical bus duct is a common feature in both manufacturing facilities and high rise buildings. In the past, bus duct testing involved labor-intensive manual inspection and maintenance and a significant power outage. Infrared thermography can be useful in situations where bus duct loads are balanced and uniform; however, these conditions are not usually found in the field. Resistive load banks combined with infrared thermography provide a controlled and accurate non-destructive test method for electrical bus ducts. Labor and downtime are both reduced and testing may be varied from light to full load.
