In a recent column, you wrote about the risks of replacing 20-amp fuses with 30-amp fuses in old fuse boxes.
For example, if two fuses with an [I.sup.2]t = 3.5[A.sup.2]s are used in parallel, the effective [I.sup.2]t will be 3.5[A.sup.2]s x [2.sup.2] = 14[A.sup.2]s.
The common solution for providing protection at higher current levels is to use two fuses with equal current ratings in parallel.
* The DC resistance of a fuse generally has a 15 percent tolerance; therefore, in the worst case, the DC resistances of two randomly chosen fuses with the same current rating and from the same manufacturer could differ up to 35 percent (1.15 Rdc/0.85 Rdc = 1.35, i.e.
