And the mains plug fuse doesn't blow? This does not sound like an
overcurrent fault to me. Is the 100A breaker an RCD type of thing?
(actually, it sounds like a 100A-rated RCD used as a main switch in the
consumer unit to me, those are _not_ 100A breakser and will not trip on
over-current, just on earth leakage).

Actually, I'd expect the PSU to go into overcurrent shutdown mode or
something. In gneral, the input circuit breaker only trips if there's a
failure i nthePSU iteslf. Any problem with the load will shut the supply
down with no other effects
