Portable Power Station Parameters 15: Over Current Protection

Over Current Protection

This blog is about Over Current Protection of portable power stations.

Overcurrent Protection (OCP) is a feature that prevents too much current from going into the processor. 

To have a properly operating circuit, current flow should be confined to a safe level. This safe level of current is determined by the current handling capability of the load, conductors, switches, and other system components. Under normal operating conditions, the current in a circuit should be equal to or less than the normal current level. However, at times an electrical circuit may have a higher-than-normal current flow (overcurrent).

An overcurrent is a condition that exists in an electrical circuit when the normal load current is exceeded. An overcurrent condition can be caused by a short circuit or overload situation.
