Title: Analysis of the influence of some factors on the electric field and thermal field of a high power low voltage fuse
Keywords: Electric field, finite element method, high power low voltag

Abstract: The present paper numerically analyzes the influence of the contact resistance and the filler type of a high power low voltage fuse on both the electric and thermal field. A 3D computer model of a high power low voltage fuse, developed by the authors and described in a previous paper, has been used for this purpose. Results about the distribution of both the electric and the thermal field have been obtained in case of increased contact resistance and different fuse filler. Comparison of the obtained numerical results has been made.
