- n. an electrical conductor that makes a common connection between several circuits.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A system of conductors, in an electric generating-station, on which the power of all the generators is collected for distribution into the system, or (in an electric receiving-station) on which the power from the generating-station is received for distribution to the apparatus consuming it.

Sorry, no etymologies found.
The cause of this delay is due to several factors such as implementation of a new enhanced protection system for the busbar and magnet splices, installation of new pressure relief valves to reduce the collateral damage in case of a repeat incident, application of more stringent safety constraints, and scheduling constraints associated with helium transfer and storage.
Anywho, if the busbar that got "doughed" was outside any standard energy supply systems, it isn't a matter of high probability due to system size but perhaps bad engineering.
Current-limiting ceils are mainly installed in the busbar branches of medium-voltage plants.
Distribution system with switching devices which make it possible to electrically connect and disconnect the outgoing main lines with/from the busbar.
Longitudinal busbar coupling - I, II, III busbar sections
The intensive magnetic fields generated as a consequence of such current can physically destroy busbar installations, current transformer heads
Every control and lead, every busbar and immaterial beam of force was traced and checked.
Everything's burned out or shorted or fused together; I saw one busbar eight inches across melted clean in two.
It dependes on the voltage of the winding connected to the busbar.
The 10/32 threaded vertical mounting rails easily adjust in ¼ inch increments for accurate alignment, while numbered U positions and copper busbar attachment points further simplify set-up.
