The difference between DC fuses and AC fuses

The difference between DC fuses and AC fuses

Answer:

DC fuses and AC fuses are part of the current limiting fuse, the shape is very similar, but the breaking current process is very different:

Alternating current is a sinusoidal waveform alternating conduction, the weekly wave has a zero, then the minimum value of electricity is very easy to extinguish the arc
May 9, 2017
any waveform of DC does not exist in the zero, in the open DC short-circuit fault current

thanks to the rapid melting of the fuse and the diffusion of quartz sand adsorption and cooling forced to extinguish the arc, so it is much more difficult than breaking the AC

DC fast fuses can replace AC fast fuses, and vice versa
