The distribution of power to the various circuits are protected from over-current by the use of circuit breakers or fuses.Normally, a main switch, and in recent boards, one or more residual-current devices (RCDs) or residual current breakers with overcurrent protection (RCBOs) are also incorporated.
Circuit breakers and fuses ensures there are no over-currents during the distribution of power to different circuits.In the event of a short circuit or an overload on a branch circuit, the circuit breaker will cut the power before any potential property damage or personal injury can occur.
Electrical panels are ensuring the safe power distribution to the load. Electrical panels are manufactured by rolled steel and well-shaped either rectangle or square. Electrical panel are classified different types as per application./The Engineering Mindset
