The control circuitry must monitor (sense) the output voltage, and adjust the current source (as required by the load) to hold the output voltage at the desired value. The design limit of the current source defines the maximum load current the regulator can source and still maintain regulation.
To prevent this occurrence, the current limit circuit will override the voltage control loop, and cut down the drive to the pass transistor so that the maximum safe current level is not exceeded .
