  • Electromagnetic simulation of a low voltage industrial circuit breaker
    This article demonstrates the workflow for the electromagnetic simulation of a circuit industrial circuit breaker using the CST EM STUDIO (R) (CST EMS).
  • Arc Movement Inside an AC/DC Circuit Breaker
    Abstract-Within this project, the mode of operation of the circuit breaker and its new innovative method of arc guiding were analyzed and verified. The solution refers to a switching device that is able to deal with both ac switching loads and bidirectional dc switching loads.
  • Circuit Breaker Selective Trip Coordination in 225A and 400A Distribution Panelboards (.pdf)
    With the increase of transformer size in the data center, much higher levels of available fault current are being seen. The use of "zero-crossing" circuit breakers to handle these faults, often in the range of 16,000 to 30,000 amps, is not advisable. All too often, the main circuit breaker trips
  • What Makes a Magnetic Circuit Breaker Trip
  • Silicone Source-Certain HEXSEAL (R) Switch & Circuit Breaker Seals
    Hardly a day goes by when the media isn't reporting on the lack of integrity in politics. In commerce, counterfeit electronic components are finding their way into U.S. military equipment. And in medicine, counterfeit breast implants utilizing industrial-grade silicone instead of the appropriate
  • Optimizing Circuit Breaker Instantaneous Trip Settings for Selectivity and Arc Flash Performance Simultaneously (.pdf)
    This paper discusses analytical techniques and new technology that allow switchgear CBs to use sensitive instantaneous settings and maintain selectivity when using traditional electronic trips in switchgear and current limiting molded case circuit breakers, motor circuit protectors or fuses
  • Selecting Circuit Breakers (.pdf)
    A circuit breaker to most design engineers is thought of as a low cost commodity component that usually doesn't get much attention when designing a new piece of equipment or system. In fact, on many occasions I have heard someone say, "It doesn't matter I just need a circuit breaker." The fact
  • Circuit Breakers
    Circuit breakers are manual switches that open under overload conditions. Circuit breakers discussed here are general-purpose types that meet the minimum Underwriters' Laboratories Inc. (UL) standards. Heavy-duty types used in power distribution systems such as oil-filled types, are not included
  • Sizing Circuit Breakers for Self-Regulating Heat Tracers (.pdf)
    Circuit breaker sizing for S/R tracers is quite easily accomplished by using the specification sheet data or CompuTrace (R) heat tracing design software. However, sometimes an engineer or designer asks "What is the technical basis for sizing data and the resulting design values?" This ThermoTip
  • Switches & Circuit Breakers: To Hermetically Seal or Not (.pdf)
    Not every unsealed or sealed panel switch, potentiometer, or circuit breaker needs environmental exposure protection from adverse conditions on the ground, in the air or on or under the water. But, for those controls that must operate where dust, dirt, moisture, water, lubricants, fungus, snow, ice
