Various factors affect the performance of electrical contacts,
including tribological, mechanical, electrical, and materials
aspects. Although these behaviors have been studied for many years,
they are not widely used or understood in practice. Combining
approaches used across the globe, Electrical Contacts:
Fundamentals, Applications, and Technology integrates advances in
research and development in the tribological, material, and
analytical aspects of electrical contacts with new data on
electrical current transfer at the micro- and nanoscales. Taking an
application-oriented approach, the authors illustrate how material
characteristics, tribological behavior, and loading impact the
degradation of contacts, formation of intermetallics, and overall
reliability and performance. Coverage is divided broadly into three
sections, with the first focused on mechanics, tribology,
materials, current and heat transfer, and basic reliability issues
of electrical contacts. The next section explores applications,
such as power connections, electronic connections, and sliding
contacts, while the final section presents the diagnostic and
monitoring techniques used to investigate and measure phenomena
occurring at electrical contact interfaces. Numerous references to
current literature reflect the fact that this book is the most
comprehensive survey in the field. Explore an impressive collection
of data, theory, and practical applications in Electrical Contacts:
Fundamentals, Applications, and Technology, a critical tool for
anyone investigating or designing electrical equipment with
improved performance and reliability in mind.
