Power factor


  1. Usually, electrical machines in your homes work well and safely. However, faults may occasionally arise. Sometimes, the fault may cause it to consume more power; machine or wire carrying electricity to it, may heat up and could catch fire. A circuit breaker prevents accidents, responding to sudden sudden extra flow of electricity by cutting off the supply. The circuit breaker can be reset later when faulty machine has been removed or made safe.
