PC37.48 - Guide and Tutorial for the Application of High-Voltage (> 1000 V) Fuses and Accessories

a) To help prospective users and protection engineers understand the basics of high-voltage (> 1000 V a.c.) fuse technology and applications involving high-voltage (HV) fuses; b) to illustrate the particular and unique advantages of fuse protection for most service applications; c) to minimize possible misapplications of fuses which could lead to problems in the field; d) to list and describe the many types of fuses in use today, and the international standards that apply to them, including fuse types not specifically included in IEC, IEEE or other recognized standards. This guide gathers information previously published in IEC, IEEE, and other publications, as well as new material.This guide provides information for understanding the construction, operation and application of high-voltage (> 1000 V) fuses and accessories, intended for use on ac electrical distribution systems. Current-limiting, expulsion, electronic, and other, non-current-limiting, fuses and accessories are all covered, as are North American, European, and other application practices. As a guide, this document contains no requirements and is informative only.
