DC Short Circuit Protection with Electronic Fuse

DC Short Circuit Protection with Electronic Fuse

Here the diagram of electronic fuse circuit. This circuit will help to protect the load against short circuit for DC circuit application. Relays should be chosen with a voltage value equals to the input voltage. Do not omit making use of the 100uF capacitor with proper voltage value with respect to the input voltage. The circuit use Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) BRX46 which is designed for control systems and sensing circuit applications. In case you cannot find this component, it is possible to use C106 as a substitute of BRX46.

It is possible to alter the electric current with applying 10K potentiometer. In the event you will utilize the fuse with very high currents, then reduce the 0R6 5W resistor value (ex. 0R47, 0R33, 0R22 or 0R1). Watt value of the resistor also needs to be increased also.

About Power Supply
A power supply is a device that supplies electrical energy to one or more electric loads. The term of "power supply" is most commonly applied to devices that convert one form of electrical energy to another, though it may also refer to devices that convert another form of energy (e.g., mechanical, chemical, solar) to electrical energy.
A power supply may be implemented as a discrete, stand-alone device or as an integral device that is hardwired to its load. In the latter case, for example, low voltage DC power supplies are commonly integrated with their loads in devices such as computers and household electronics. More explanation about power supply can be found at wikipedia.org

This is the tutorial about "How to build an AC to DC power supply ". The video tutorial covers the basics of diodes, bridge rectifiers, and how to build simple unregulated AC to DC power supplies than can handle a few mA up to several Amps.
