English

Subject field(s)
  • Aircraft Systems
OBS

The typical aircraft circuit breaker can be described as a manually operated switch which has an automatic tripping device. This tripping device breaks the circuit when the current reaches any predetermined value. The switch-type circuit breaker serves as both a fuse and a switch, and a single circuit breaker may be used to control several circuits. For example, it may receive current from a bus and pass it on to several parallel circuits.
