This paper introduces a newly developed electronic fuse circuit namely “voltage based electronic fuse circuit” for the purpose of providing safety to electrical equipments from the short-circuit currents. The design and the working of this circuit is wholly based on Ohm’s law. Also in this paper, working and operation of the fuse circuit is examined in detail with the help of simulated results. Further these results are supported by the technical experimental results. The simulated results and experimental results are validated by user defined measurements and Voltage based Electronic Fuse circuit simulation is done by using NI multisim software 11.0.1 and the respective output characteristics are plotted. This model can be used as a safety device in the place of circuit breakers and electrical fuses and to reduce cost, size and also to increase reliability, control of electric energy and speed action of closing and opening of circuit automatically when fault is occurred.
