I am referring MOV characteristics attached as shown below:
As per it's characteristics,
"The conceptual sketch above shows the current I through an MOV is as a function of the voltage V across the MOV. Below the threshold voltage Vth, we see leakage current. Above Vth, the MOV switches to high conductance mode and the current increases significantly with only a small increase in voltage. (The incremental resistance in high conductance mode is the slope of the VI curve, or ΔV/ΔI"
As per above quote "Below the threshold voltage Vth, we see leakage current" Here, we can see in characteristics that leakage current shown and it's very close to zero.
But if we see voltage at this point, its also less till its reaches zero. At point its zero and voltage across MOV is zero. Since MOV is connected across load, at this point load is shorted and can harm our load.
Am I correct in my opinion ? How it maintains const. voltage to load when MOV is shorted for short instance?
