This paper intends to compare the many different solutions available to design a busbar interconnection. Starting from a single copper plate and going to multilayer busbars, the influence of the external shape of the sheet, of the number and the nature of holes and apertures are considered. Simulations and measurements are used to determine the stray inductance of the different busbars. Design rules are deduced from the many case studies, based on industrial examples
