How do DC motors work in stall I have been told (from my engineering project seminars at uni) that if your motor has a stall current of 5.6A, you should use a 5.8A fuse to cut it off after it begins to stall (but not cut out EVERY time, as it might just get bumped or some other temporary interruption occurs, so we don't blow a fuse every time). Does the motor begin to stall and goes beyond the stall current after a brief period of time, blowing the fuse to cut it off (this doesn't seem right to me so I'm asking)?
The other thing I'm curious about it controlling the max current my motor can draw. So I have an H-Bridge IC with a maximum rated current (to power the motor) of 5A. The motor has a stall current of 5.6A so can I use a series resistor to reduce the maximum current to 4.8A with a 5A fuse (using similar reasoning as in the previous paragraph)?
