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.

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”。
