A wire or combination or wires not insulated from one another, suitable for carrying a single electric current is called conductor. The term conductor is not to include a combination of conductors insulated from one another, which would be suitable for carrying several different electric currents. Aluminium is a metal characterized by high resistance to corrosion, good electrical and thermal conductivity, and a density which is about one-third or less that of steel, copper, or nickel. Aluminium can be used as a power conductor, or for wire and cable shielding. Aluminium provides a lower weight to current-carrying ratio compared to copper. Aluminium has a lower tensile strength than copper, but approaches that of copper for the equivalent ampacity. When terminated with appropriate plating, hardware and processes as stipulated by the governing standards, Aluminium bussing, wiring and terminations prove to be as reliable as copper. Finally, the choice of Aluminium conductors can provide a significant cost savings. Aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors are the preferred and dominant conductors in several areas of power distribution. The major areas dominated by aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors are non-insulated overhead power transmission, insulated overhead power transmission and non overhead power distribution. Aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors offer good conductivity, light weight, excellent resistance to corrosion, good bending properties, greater tensile strength than copper and excellent compatibility with most common insulation used by the wire and cable industry. During 2010-2015, the Indian equipment manufacturing will grow at 5.5 times the growth rate of global electronic equipment production. Therefore, it is a good project for entrepreneurs to invest.
