The amount of electrical power converted to heat by a device.
The power dissipation is the power released in a fuse link carrying a stated value of current under prescribed conditions of use and behaviour, usually including a constant r.m.s. value of current until steady temperature conditions are reached.
Power dissipated from the device while in the tripped state.
Work per unit time consumed by a device, generally the product of current and voltage.
The amount of power that is consumed and converted to heat.
Amount of heat energy generated by a device in one second when current flows through it.
