Electrical Fuse Types

Fuse is a piece of wire of a material with a very low melting point. When a high current flows through the circuit due to Overloading or a Short circuit, the wires get heated and melts. As a result, the circuit is broken and current stops flowing. In electronics and electrical engineering, a fuse is a type of low resistance resistor that acts as a sacrificial device to provide overcurrent protection, of either the load or source circuit.
