Anyone have any idea how solid state isolators and diodes (and lithium batteries!) react to conditions that burn out circuit boards?
I'm an electronics engineer. There is nothing like enough information in those articles to comment on how one part of the system might respond to a fault in another. Common sense at the design stage would require each system to isolate itself from others in the event of an internal fault (eg breakers/fuses used so that a short circuit doesn't have consequences outside that part of the system). I've not seen any reports that the aircraft that had power panel fauts was the same aircraft that had battery faults.
