13.11 Fuses
Fuses are destroyed when they blow. A fusible conductor strip inside an insulating and
explosion-proof case interrupts the current flowwhen a defined I²t value (design load) is
exceeded. Fuses for semiconductors should be the last protectivemeasure to interrupt
the circuit. Because a fuse has a higher I²t value than an IGBT, protection of the IGBTs
is not possible. This kind of protection against a short circuit on the load side has to be
