In many large systems that derive power from a central power supply, there is a need to maintain system Integrity in the event one module fails and attempts to draw excessive current. A typical solu- tion is to use a dedicated fuse in series with each module that physically isolates it from the power sup- ply when its rating is exceeded. There are, however, instances where such an approach is impractical because of the high incidence of transient surges that exist.
