43. 43. Simple Circuit Breaker • When the live wire carries the usual operating current the electromagnet is not strong enough to separate the contacts.
44. 44. Simple Circuit Breaker • If something goes wrong with the appliance and a large current flows the electromagnet will exert a strong magnetic force to separate the contacts and break the circuit. The spring then keeps the contacts apart.
45. 45. Simple Circuit Breaker • After the fault is repaired, the contacts can then be pushed back together by lifting a switch on the outside of the circuit breaker.
