Circuit Breakers are supposed to break the cirrcuit under certain overload conditions. For the kind of loads we have with undercarriage drive and weapons, the CB's would typically have two kinds of overload detection:

1. Thermal (bi-metal): this will respond based on the amount and duration of overload. Reaction is slow.
2. Electromagnetic: this will respond for high overload like when there is a short-circuit. Reaction is instantaneous, but only if the load current is a multiple of the rated load.

I'm under the impression that the EM element of the CB's is modelled with exaggerated sensitivity.

Just wait until engine overheating comes to this module.

Well I've just discovered today that the Generator CB will pop in single player too. It reliably popped any time I turned on the two gun switches, then popped once again mid firing sequence.

Maby we are missing something here, maby some CB should be off, maby turning all CBs will make generator CB pop up eventualy,

Yes, I have reported that in a separate thread. The Generator CB systematically pops up when you activate the Weapon Master switch. Plus, it pops up when you fire a very long burst.

You mean the pilot was not supposed to switch his weapons ON? Come on, Graf Spee!

No, it's the developer(s) who missed something - or maybe overdid something.
The FW-190 was known to be a very robust and resilient plane. With the behaviours we are seeing here, it would not have been fit for the rough conditions it was to operate in.

Yes, i agree its developer who overdid something like engine in fw190 till recent patch and engine in p-51
i know where is this engine problems come from,Russia got extremly garbage aviation fuel, most of leand leased planes had lots off issues with this fuel.
Where in England spit was running fine in russia engine get blow to pices in seconds.
Since ED leech data from russian trials, no wonder that engines running high boosts are blowing apart, where german planes worked fine with that fuel.
Mystery solved why db605 run full power for ages and v-1650-7 run full power for 5 minutes and get blow to pieces

Guys,
I noticed that the problem is when the Engine is not hot enough. When the engine is bellow that mark close to 50C, the CBs pull. After the engine is warmed up, above 50C or so, no problem with the generator nor the battery and you may turn on the weapons.
My two cents!
All the best,
Sydy
