Critical Power: Circuit protection
Although a building’s entire electrical distribution system is important, its overcurrent protection is the most critical to safety. Overcurrent includes short circuits and overloads. During a short circuit, electrical current bypasses the load, taking the path of least resistance. An overload is an overcurrent condition within normal current paths. If an overload is allowed to persist,
