Circuit breakers are automatic electrical switches designed to interrupt current flow in the event of an overload or short circuit.

Electrical circuits can experience several conditions which pose danger to associated equipment or the circuit itself, namely current overload and short circuits. An overload occurs when a larger than anticipated electric current flows through a circuit, generating excess heat and the possibility of a fire.
