Abstract : The purpose of this development program is to design a family of fail-safe fuses (2-30A, 28VDC, 115/230V-400 Hz) for applications in aircraft electrical systems solid state power controllers (SSPCs). The SSPC functions as a circuit interrupter and a load controller, and when operating properly should protect the aircraft wiring between itself and the load. However, if the SSPC fails to open during a short or overload condition, excessive current can flow, resulting in serious damage to aircraft wiring. The purpose of the SSPC fuse is to prevent wire damage in this double fault condition. (Author)
