What is electrical circuit protection?

Electrical circuit protection is the purposeful use of a fail-safe device that automatically causes a disruption in an electrical circuit when it recognizes an excess and unsafe load of power in a circuit. Common circuit protection devices and components include circuit breakers, fuses, surge protection and protective relays.
