English term or phrase: service interruption
Be careful when specifying amperage and delay parameters for the branch circuit breaker that provides power to the PDU. Selection of circuit breakers in an electrical power system should be specified so that when an abnormal condition exists, the breaker closest to the abnormality in the distribution path trips before the larger upstream circuit breaker. This isolates and ***limits service interruption*** only to the branch experiencing the problem.
最后一句的意思好像是:这样只隔离出现问题的分路并限制其断电,但是感觉上又有些不对,出现问题了应该是断开,怎么还限制,不知道是不是意思理解错误了,谢谢。

停电范围(详见下文)


Explanation:
service interruption:本意是“停电”、“供电中断”之意。limit service interruption可以作一下转译——“缩小了停电范围”。这样最后一句意思就清楚了“隔离了出现故障的分支(支线),从而缩小了(减少了)停电范围”。
供参考!
