Which is better a fast or a slow fuse link?

Some users prefer fast links to eliminate any possibility of damage to person or property. However, since a large percentage of faults are temporary, this contributes to nuisance outages. Many utilities have switched to more sophisticated system protection schemes that utilized both slow and fast fuse links with a view to minimize the number of outages experienced by customers while not exceeding the thermal capabilities of the systems hardware.
