<emphasis role="italic"><emphasis role="bold">THEORY OF CIRCUIT INTERRUPTION</emphasis></emphasis> A circuit breaker is a device that switches on and switches off electric circuits during normal as well as abnormal operating conditions. During the making or breaking of the switching contacts, there is a transition stage of arcing between the contacts. The study of this phenomenon is of great importance for understanding the design and operational characteristics of circuit breakers.
