Provides design curves which determine optimum resistor or inductor values for surge protection, provided that an upper bound on surge duration and circuit supply voltages are known. The resistor or inductor values are optimized in the sense that maximum theoretical energy transfers to semiconductor junctions are equated to predetermined burnout thresholds.
