 The concept in this circuit is that R<​sub>​2</​sub>​ acts as current sense resistor. When the load current times R<​sub>​2</​sub>,​ the sense voltage, reaches about 0.6 (for silicon transistors ) Q<​sub>​2</​sub>​ begins to conduct and increases current in R<​sub>​1</​sub>​ which limits ​ the base drive to Q<​sub>​1</​sub>​reducing ​ its output current. The maximum current from the circuit is reached when I<​sub>​L</​sub>​*R<​sub>​2</​sub>​ = 0.6. This circuit can be used to protect amplifiers (including push pull amplifiers.),​ power supplies and other circuits; or it can be used as a constant current circuit. This is not a precision circuit; however it is a simple and effective circuit. ​ The concept in this circuit is that R<​sub>​2</​sub>​ acts as current sense resistor.
