As stated in the electrical code, circuits are to be loaded to 80 percent of the total capacity when operating in a continuous state..

the circuit breaker has low amperes.

Watts = volts x amperes. So if your region uses 110 volts, 20 amperes is equivalent to 2200 watts; if your region uses 220 volts, 20 amperes is equivalent to 4400 watts.

no, because it is depend on its current carrying capacity. eg-if 25amp current flowing in the ckt then 30amp breaker don't protect the ckt but if it is cross the rated capacity then breaker works.

Making capacity of a circuit breaker is the maximum current which the breaker can conduct at the instant of closing. Breaking capacity of the circuit breaker refers to the maximum current that the circuit breaker can interrupt.

the circuit breaker has low amperes.

Not if the GFCI breaker is supplying the circuit you are wanting to put the GFCI receptacle into.

yes it is the main breaker

what is meaning breaking capacity breaker

maybe 10 amperes

find amphere required

the maximum short current that can be safely break by the circuit breaker.

high voltage breaking capacity
