Description : Explain the suitability of aluminium as an electrical conductor with respect to its mechanical and electrical properties.
Answer : Following are requirements of conductor:- i) High conductivity : Material should have high conductivity, So that * cross section of conductor (size) reduces, * Copper losses reduces, * So Efficiency ... . Boiling point is 1820°C 9. Specific gravity is 2.7 10. High resistance to corrosion.
Answer : When a conductor carries more current on the surface as compared to core, it is due to skin effect.
