    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (653 KB)

    A NEW BASIS for rating power circuit breakers was proposed at the January 1954 AIEE Winter General Meeting by the Working Group on Methods of Rating Power Circuit Breakers. This group proposed that the making, latching, and interrupting current ratings of circuit breakers be combined into one rating, rated short-circuit current, having specified characteristics which a breaker shall be able to clo...
