Title: Influence of the cables on the heating of a high power low voltage fuse
Keywords: cables, finite element method, heating, high-power fuse

Abstract: Numerical studies of the influence of the cross-sections of the connecting cables on the heating of a high-power low-voltage fuse have been carried out and presented in this paper. The studies have been conducted using a developed 3D computer model in the software product COMSOL. The coupled electric-thermal problem has been solved. Results, concerning the distribution of the thermal field of the fuse when using connecting cables with different cross-sections, have been obtained. A comparison of the obtained results has been made.
