A specialized tool called a DC Solid State Circuit Breaker (DC SSCB) is used in Direct Current (DC) electrical systems to isolate and interrupt defects, or short circuits. DC SSCBs use semiconductors and electronic controllers to interrupt current more quickly and precisely than standard mechanical circuit breakers. In contrast to mechanical breakers, which require milliseconds to interrupt a fault, DC SSCBs can do this in microseconds. Rapid reaction reduces equipment damage and safeguards vital components. When conducting current, they provide extremely low resistance, which means that during typical operation, very little energy is lost. In contrast to mechanical breakers that produce sparks when they are interrupted, DC SSCBs are silent and do not provide a risk of arc flash risks. Compared to mechanical components, semiconductors have a longer operational life, which makes them a more dependable and long-lasting choice for circuit protection. Circuit breaker conditions can be remotely monitored and controlled through the integration of advanced DC SSCBs with control systems. They are appropriate for a variety of applications as they can be made to handle a broad range of DC voltages and currents. Overall, DC solid-state circuit breakers are a better option for safeguarding DC electrical systems than conventional mechanical breakers. They are an excellent resource for many applications due to their quick operation, great efficiency, and long lifespan, especially in the data center, electric car, and renewable energy sectors.

Market Dynamics:


The growth of the data centers drives the growth of the DC solid-state circuit breaker market. Dependable power protection in data centers is essential due to the constantly growing need for data processing and storage. DC SSCBs are perfect for protecting delicate data center equipment due to their quicker response times and silent operation. Unlike mechanical breakers, which require milliseconds to interrupt faults, DC SSCBs use electronic controllers and semiconductors. In the event of a malfunction, this quick reaction reduces harm to delicate data center equipment. DC SSCBs function silently, in contrast to mechanical breakers that produce sparks when they operate. This is important as noise can damage sensitive equipment and make the working environment less pleasant in data centers. Arc flash risks, which can seriously harm data centers and raise safety issues, are avoided when there is no arcing during fault interruption.


The lack of technical expertise may hinder the growth of the DC solid-state circuit breaker market. Technicians with specific training and familiarity with semiconductor technology are often needed for the installation and maintenance of DC SSCBs. For certain users, who might not have the internal knowledge, this could be difficult. DC SSCBs' switching and control operations are powered by semiconductor technology. The functions and unique qualities of these parts must be well understood by technicians. DC SSCB installation must be done correctly to guarantee both their best functionality and safety. This could entail setting up communication protocols, choosing compatible control connections, and working out the proper sizes. Compared to mechanical breakers, diagnosing and troubleshooting DC SSCBs involves a better understanding of the underlying circuitry. Technicians must be knowledgeable about the possible failure modes unique to control systems and semiconductors.


The increasing development of cost-effective solutions creates a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the market. The cost of DC SSCBs has decreased due to technological developments and economies of scale, increasing their competitiveness against conventional circuit breakers and broadening their market appeal. Modern semiconductors can withstand larger voltages and currents with less power loss, which could lower the DC SSCBs' total component cost. DC SSCBs' size and complexity can go down as semiconductor components get smaller, which lowers manufacturing costs and material consumption. When several functions are combined onto a single chip, fewer components are needed, which simplifies production and reduces expenses.


When compared to more traditional mechanical breakers, DC SSCBs are a relatively recent technology. For their adoption to be more widespread, it is essential to educate prospective users about their benefits and to raise awareness of their advantages. For many years, mechanical circuit breakers have been the norm in the business. Due to their recent technological development, DC SSCBs might not have become well-known to many potential customers, nor are they completely aware of their advantages over conventional breakers.

Recent Developments:

  • In June 2019, Fuji Electric Co. Ltd. acquired Consul Neowatt Power Solutions, a Chennai-based leading power backup manufacturer for Rs.720 crore). This is the first-ever acquisition of the $ 8-million Fuji Electric in India, which has a $ 1-million UPS & inverter industry.

  • In June 2019, Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. (“FE”), headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, led by President Michihiro Kitazawa, is pleased to announce that, to expand its power electronics systems business in India, it has agreed with Peepul Capital Fund III LLC and the individual shareholders to acquire the entire shares of Consul Neowatt Power Solutions Private Limited (CNPS), a major power electronics manufacturer in the country. 

  • In August 2023, Sécheron launched a new product of DC circuit breaker. The NEW metallic casing for DC circuit breakers UR10 and UR15, rated at 1,800 or 900 volts DC. In addition to providing protection, the new product is intended to reduce installation and maintenance expenses and time, and it may even incorporate extra features within the DC circuit breaker. When compared to conventional polyester enclosures, the NEW metallic enclosure's unparalleled adaptability is one of its main advantages. The metallic enclosure enhances integration to a higher level, whereas the polyester enclosures can only hold DC circuit breakers.
