Hey Joe! Excellent idea! I'm going to reorder a power resistor with smaller resistance, so that a shorted mosfet would draw an obscene amount of amps (well maybe only like 10 or something), and a fuse that would go off around 5, and the pwm would be such that the max shunt current would be 2 amps. That's a nice easy fix! I might need to add a small inductor to smooth it out, but maybe not.
