Fuses provide critical protection to electrical systems and the properties those systems serve by opening circuits to shut down the flow of electricity when dangerous overload and short-circuit conditions occur. But sometimes this protective behavior can become a nuisance, as when standard inrush currents trigger a fuse to blow.
