Short Description of the Presentation
The circuit breakers are essential to the control of
electricity and protection of the electrical equipment.
Over the last more than a century these devices have
evolved significantly and are now available with in-built
intelligence. The networking capability of these
devices provides data at appropriate time and location
for decision making thus improving the management of
the electrical energy.
