How overloading takes place? How can it be prevented?

Overloading can take place when the live wire and the neutral wire come into direct contact. (This

occurs when the insulation of wires is damaged or there is a fault in the appliance.)Due to this a short-circuit occurs resulting in abrupt increase of current in the circuit.

 

Using an electric fuse prevents the electric circuit and the appliance from a possible damage by stopping the flow of unduly high electric current. The Joule heating that takes place in the fuse melts it to break the electric circuit.
