Hello Mike,

As I read the datasheet for the 1.5KE15A, the breakdown voltage is nominally 15 
VDC.  So when the pass transistor shorts, won't the transient diode limit the 
voltage to the load to nominal 15 VDC, bypassing enough current to ground to 
trip the overload on the power supply?

I intend to incorporate a fast-blow fuse, not sure why the question prompted 
the sarcasm.
