Five Factors to Consider when Selecting an Overcurrent Protective Device for an Electric Vehicle System to Ensure Safe and Reliable Performance
In electric and hybrid vehicle applications, electrical systems are often pushed to their limits. Aggressive current pulses, combined with high temperatures and vibration profiles, push the limits of electrical system reliability. When selecting an over-current protection device (OCPD), care must be taken to account for these complex variables while still providing a system that is safe and reliable. This article will discuss five critical and often overlooked factors in OCPD selection in EV applications in order to ensure safe and reliable system performance.
