Difference between Fuse and Circuit breaker

Electrical Fuse
Circuit breaker

• The fuse is a device working on the electrical and thermal properties of the conducting material, while a circuit breaker is a device working on the electromechanical principles.
• Once used a fuse has to be replaced but the circuit breaker can be reused after correction of the fault in the system.
• Fuses offer protection against only power overloads, while circuit breaker offers protection against power overloads and short circuits (voltage imbalances)
