Elimination of Current Crowding Problem in Flat Conductors Bent at Arbitrary Angles

Abstract
This work is devoted to a theoretical investigation of the current crowding problem in flat conductors bent at arbitrary angles. Using conformal mapping techniques, we succeed in obtaining an analytical expression for current density distributions in such conductors. It is shown that the current density increases in a small vicinity of the corner and approaches to infinity at its top. In order to eliminate the infinity, the vertex is replaced by an arc of a circle with a small radius. The method has been developed for an arbitrary angle; several specific examples are considered.
