The Fires which originate from defects in electrical equipment are called as Electrical fires. The electrical fires originate from four main categories of reasons which are 'overloading of electrical equipments; defects or deterioration of electrical insulation; deterioration & failure of pressurized contacts between various components in electrical installation; mechanical failure (fracture) of current carrying components. Out of above major causes, deterioration & failure of pressurized contact involves the importance of electrical contact resistance.
