## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello Guys!

I was designing copper bus-bars which can withstand 1 kA current. Actually I am going to discharge a several DC capacitors into those bars. So, I was confused in the dimensioning the cross section. Is 25mm * 3mm cross section enough? I have made my calculation using 1.6 A/mm

Thanks in advance.

^{2}current density for copper. Help is badly needed.Thanks in advance.
