Overview and Source of overvolatge Nature of danger Lightening overvolatgeSwitching overvolatge
When the voltage in a circuit or part of it is raised above its upper designlimit, this is known as
over voltage
.The conditions may be hazardous. Depending on its duration, the over voltage event can be permanent or transient, the latter case also beingknown as a voltage spike.Electronic and electrical devices are designed to operate at a certainmaximum supply voltage, and Considerable damage can be caused byvoltage that is higher than that for which the devices are rated.For example an electric light bulb has a wire in it that at the given ratedvoltage will carry a current just large enough for the wire to get very hot(giving off light and heat), but not hot enough for it to melt.The amount of current in a circuit depends on the voltage supplied: if thevoltage is too high, then the wire may melt and the light bulb has "burnedout".Similarly other electrical devices may stop working, or even maybe burstinto flames if an over voltage is supplied to the circuit of which thesedevices are part.
