Wattage valve for power lines

Recommended Posts

Just like how liquid and gas pipes have a valve that limits the amount of liquid and gas that flows through the pipes, there should be an equivalent device that limits the wattage that flows through a wire, to prevent power spikes.

Honestly you can build something that has the same effect.

Determine the least important (or spikiest) consumer. Put a shut-off on the wire leading into it, put a watt sensor on the circuit side, shut off the consumer when the watt reaches beyond what you like.
