Figure 18 shows one half-cycle of short-circuit current if there were no protection. 7071 × maximum value) is called the prospective short-circuit current. The cut-off point is where the short-circuit current is interrupted and an arc is formed; the time t1 taken to reach this point is called the pre-arcing time. After the current has been cut off, it falls to zero as the arc is being extinguished. The time t2 is the total time taken to disconnect the fault. During the time t1 , the protective device is allowing energy to pass through to the load side of the circuit.
