Scope: Wright and Newbery’s classic guide to the world of electric fuses has now been substantially revised and remains the comprehensive reference work on the subject.  This third edition includes aspects which have arisen since the second edition including the following: the further analysis of pre-arcing and arcing behaviour, retrofitting of expulsion fuses with automatic sectionalising links, developments in chip fuses and automotive fuses, application information on benefits of fuses, IGBT protection; arc flash and power quality, an update on national and international standards and inclusion of glossary of terms.

The book as a whole gives a comprehensive treatment of fuses, and is not intended solely for those engaged in fuse development, design and production, but also for those responsible for planning and protection of electrical circuits and networks.

About the authors: Arthur Wright spent the first 18 years of his career in industry, holding posts with the Admiralty, Brush Electrical Engineering Co. Ltd. and A. Reyrolle & Co. Ltd. He later joined the staff of the Nottingham Trent University as Professor of Electrical Engineering. He passed away in 1996.

Gordon Newbery worked for the Brush Electrical Engineering Company on fuse research, fuse design and development, later progressing to Technical Director of Brush Fuse-gear Limited, Hawker Fuse-gear Limited and Bussmann Division of Cooper Industries in the UK. He has actively participated in the national and international standardisation and technical promotion of fuses.
