High voltage protection of transformers: fuse or circuit breaker?

We already had very interesting exchanges around this question, in articles provided by 3 authors from different countries and with different opinions, who brought the pros & cons of both solutions.

    2. no evolution, still a majority of fuses

As a facility manager or end-user, what is the solution that answers best your existing or future needs

1. fuse

    2. circuit Breaker


NEW electrical engineering FORUM!

We have just added a forum dedicated to our electrical engineering community, next to the blog!

For now there are 2 sections in the forum:
* General discussion, for all topics related to electrical engineering and energy efficiency
* Blog and Forum issues, for suggestions, problems...

We took benefit to also modify our graphic identity, to highlight the focus of our engineering community towards this important evolution trend: Energy Efficiency!
