## How do you determine the breaker size on a motor?

You must size the overloads no more than 115% to 125% of the motor nameplate current rating, depending on the conditions [430.32(A)(1)]. You must size the short-circuit ground-fault protection device from 150% to 300% of the motor FLC [Table 430.52].

The average cost to install a new circuit breaker is \$187. The cost is as low as \$130 for 15 amp to 30 amp breakers and as high as \$280 for breakers up to 200 amps or when the circuit breaker is an older one with limited availability.

## How many amps can a 20 amp breaker handle?

The standard for most household circuits are rated either 15 amps or 20 amps. An important note to remember is that circuit breakers can only handle about 80% of their overall amperage. That means a 15-amp circuit breaker can handle around 12-amps and a 20-amp circuit breaker can handle about 16 amps.

## What size breaker do I need for a 3-phase motor?

For AC, 3 phase supply (400 /440 Volts) the rating of Breaker will be 6 Amps, 3 Pole or 4 Pole.

## What size breaker do I need for a 10 amp motor?

If you are connecting your 10 amp load to a standard electrical circuit in North America, a 15 or 20 amp circuit would be appropriate. If it’s a motorized load, I recommend a 20 amp circuit because inrush current at startup can “nuisance” trip a 15 amp breaker.
