  • Patent number: 9693476
    Abstract: A power conversion apparatus has a configuration in which plate-like bus-bars are laminated via an insulating material to define a pair of bus-bars. A laminated bus-bar, in which the pair of bus-bars is disposed vertically so that a width direction thereof is in a vertical direction, includes a pair of voltage measuring terminals that is correspondingly branched from a part of the pair of bus-bars to extend toward a circuit board. The pair of voltage measuring terminals is arranged symmetrically with respect to the pair of bus-bars to extend upward toward the circuit board, while extending in an intersecting direction intersecting with the pair of bus-bars, to be electrically connected to the circuit board.
