A Study on the Function Improvement of the Serge Protection Device for Radar Control Unit Jo, Hee-Jin;
The purpose of this study is to propose a useful method of solving the problem of thermal stability in surge protection devices (SPDs). First of all, the existence of the problem in the developed SPDs was confirmed by experiment. After analyzing the problem, a useful method of solving it is proposed and implemented. An experiment is performed to verify the performance of the implemented device. The results of this study are as follows; it is revealed that the problem of the thermal stability results from the varistor, one of the components in the SPD. A varistor with a built-in thermal fuse is applied to the SPD for the purpose of solving the problem. The experimental results confirmed that the thermal stability was improved by replacing the varistor. As a result of this study, the reliability of radar control units is enhanced and the probability of malfunction is reduced.
