James A Carollo: Current limiting voltage regulator. Rockwell International Corporation, Richard K Robinson, Howard R Greenberg, H Fredrick Hamann, August 24, 1982: US04346342 (24 worldwide citation)

A voltage regulator for a DC power supply senses the current in the return line of the power supply and compares the sensed current to a threshold that is generated within the regulator section of the power supply. When the sensed current exceeds the threshold, a detector circuit will sense the thre ...
