    How does .getFuseBlowTime() work?


      I noticed that their is a method called getFuseBlowTime().  However, after playing around with it for awhile I only seem to get a blow time of 0.0




      How does this method work and why does the method seem to only return 0.0 for me?


      I am using %= instead of :=

          The fuse blowing time is calculated based on the type of fuse you are using. By default, the fuse type is ATO. (Quickstart/ComponentModels/CircuitProtectors/Fuse)


          The fuse blowing or not is based on the follwing calculation:


                            percentBlow %= blowCurrent * 100.0 / fuseRating;


          If a fuse does not blow, then the blow time is zero.


          Please note the fuse model with VeSys 2.0 / Capital v2011.1 were changed, if you have an earlier version of VeSys 2.0 / Capital then the blow time was not reported.


          The new models are located in /quickstart, however more than likely your existing design is still referencing the fuse model in /CHS.  You can change that by accessing the model attacher (RMB --> Analysis --> Attach) and picking the newer model. (/Quickstart/ComponentModels/CircuitProtectors/Fuse)

          I hope this helps
