IGBT protection and arc flash and power quality. It also provides an update on national and international standards.
The book begins by describing the very first electric fuses and their applications, their later development, the introduction of standard specification and the spread of the use of fuses; and ends focusing on the updated national and international standards regarding fuses and the quality assurance and inspection methods used during manufacture to maintain the necessary high standards.
