Current limiting

Current limiting is the practice in electrical or electronic circuits of imposing an upper limit on the current that may be delivered to a load with the purpose of protecting the circuit generating or transmitting the current from harmful effects due to a short-circuit or similar problem in the load.

A DC grid requires:

  • Active current limiting, through switching
    • Passive current limiting through cirquit breakers or fuses (choose depending on safetey and TCO)
