over current protection

like i have 24V 10A (240W) i want to distribute in 10 ports 24V 1A

if at a time only one port are active then no variation in current or voltage means output is same 24V1A. kindly send me over current protection circuit.

I would suggest putting foldback protection on each output port. Foldback is explained here: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/2931/what-is-foldback-short-circuit-protection-in-a-power-supply and design of a suitable one here: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/299389/how-can-i-calculate-knee-current-for-this-foldback-current-limiter
