Circuit Breaker The Guardian of Electrical Systems

The current, however, is more than the breaker's rated capacity when there is an overload or short circuit in the circuit. The high current at this location causes the bimetallic strip to heat up quickly, bend, and engage the tripping mechanism. The electromagnet detects the irregular current concurrently and produces a magnetic field that helps trip the vacuum circuit breaker open.
