The application of residual-current principle, as carried out by zero-sequence current protective devices, is one of the most efficient ways to reduce the hazard of electric shock in case of a failure of the equipment's basic insulation to ground. Highly sensitive and regularly tested residual-current-operated circuit breakers without integral overcurrent protection (RCCBs) devices are rightfully recognized worldwide by standards and codes as an effective means to protect persons against direct… CONTINUE READING
