Figure 1(a) illustrates the basic operation principle of light and overcurrent based protection. Optical fiber based point type and loop type sensors are commonly used in this application. The sensitivity level of the sensor is not a critical issue because the light intensity caused by an arc-flash is very high compared to ambient light intensity.
