Sample overcurrent detection circuit from Texas Instruments. Link here (PDF)

This is a unidirectional current sensing solution generally referred to as overcurrent protection (OCP) that can provide an overcurrent alert signal to shut off a system for a threshold current and re-engage the system once the output drops below a desired voltage lower than the overcurrent output threshold voltage.
