Aluminum has been preferred for many years as heat, insulation, shielding and conduction material in many fields. In the electricity sector, aluminum is mostly used as conduction material. Many aluminum alloys are used together with pure aluminum. These alloys consist of compounds that have good conductivity and are resistant to harsh environmental conditions.
Use of aluminum comes to the forefront due to its being lighter (about one third of its density), being easier to process and economically cheaper than copper used in many fields. For example, it is used in many areas such as internal wiring, foils in transformer windings. It can be seen that aluminum has replaced copper since the 1990’s.
Electrical Elements Using Aluminum are as follows;
- Coolant Systems
- Aerial Lines
- Heating Elements
- Aluminum Windings
