FPN: A fuse comprises all the parts that form a unit capable of performing the prescribed functions. It may or may not be the complete device necessary to connect it into an electrical circuit. Controlled Vented Power Fuse. A fuse with provision for controlling discharge circuit interruption such that no solid material may be exhausted into the surrounding atmosphere.
At the secondary of a single-phase, center-tapped transformer, the line-to-neutral fault current is approximately one and one-half times that of the line-to-line fault current. The short-circuit current rating of utilization equipment located and connected near the service equipment should be known. For example, HVAC equipment is tested at 3500 amperes through a 40-ampere load rating and at 5000 amperes for loads rated more than 40 amperes. 13 Article 110 — Requirements for Electrical Installations wiring terminals, insulators, and other surfaces, shall not be damaged or contaminated by foreign materials such as paint, plaster, cleaners, abrasives, or corrosive residues.
An overcurrent condition can be the result of an overload, a ground fault, or a short circuit and must be eliminated before the conductor insulation damage point is reached. Overcurrent protective devices (such as fuses and circuit breakers) should be selected to ensure that the short-circuit current rating of the system components is not exceeded should a short circuit or high-level ground fault occur. System components include wire, bus structures, switching, protection and disconnect devices, and distribution equipment, all of which have limited short-circuit ratings and would be damaged or destroyed if those short-circuit ratings were exceeded.
