The attached PLECS Standalone model contains a subsystem implementation to behave as a fuse component. The user can specify the temperature limit for the device, at which point the fuse would blow and open the circuit. The implementation is open to the user (Ctrl+U) and circuit parameters such as the thermal impedance, ambient temperature, and electrical resistance can be modified for a custom design.
