  3. 3. 1. Benefit of the Model• Easily create your own fuse models by setting a few parameters, that’s usually provided by the manufacturer’s datasheet.• Enables circuit designer to safely test and optimize their circuit protection design, and to predict component and circuit stress under extreme conditions (e.g. at the fuse blow).• The model is optimized to reduce the convergence error.

  4. 4. 2. Model FeatureThe model accounts for: 10 • Current Rating • Fuse Factor 1 Fusing Time (Sec.) • Internal Resistance 0.1 • Normal Melting I2tEnable the model to simulate fusing time(blow time) as a function of I2t. 0.01The model can be used for testing the 0.001blow time for the different current pattern. 0.1 1 10 100 Fusing Current (A)A one-shot switch, once fuse is opened itcannot be closed.

  5. 5. 3. Parameter Settings• From the fuse specification, the model is characterized by setting parameters Irate, FF, Rint and I2t. Model Parameters: U1 Irate = the current rating of fuse [A] FF = Fusing Factor, the ratio of the minimum fusing current (the current FUSE that fuse start to heat up) to Irate. (e.g. Irate =400mA and the minimum IRATE = 400m fusing current is 620mA then FF = FF = 1.55 620m/400m = 1.55) RINT = 650m Rint = internal resistance of fuse I2T = 0.024 I2t = Normal Melting value [A2, seconds] Fig.2 Fuse model with default parameters All Rights Reserved Copyright (C) Bee Technologies Corporation 2011 5
