A 'collapsing circuit' - in its idea - is a circuit designed to detect a failure in a circuit and act on it. The most basic implementation would be to monitor voltage/amperage levels on the target circuit and react when those levels change (a wire is cut, an element wears out etc.).

Collapsing circuits are used in electronic security devices like alarms (alarm is set off if tampering in the device is detected), and bombs (the load is detonated when, for example, the counter is disconnected).

Typical (generic) usage for such circuits is mainly intrusion detection and failover systems - a collapsing circuit could be used to warn the user of a failure, or to enable a backup system.

One would do good to distinguish between physical (ie. electronical) and logical (signal-based, software) 'collapsing circuits'.

What is a transient current?

Transients -- they can be currents or voltages -- occur momentarily and fleetingly in response to a stimulus or change in the equilibrium of a circuit. Transients frequently occur when power is applied to or removed from a circuit, because of expanding or collapsing magnetic fields in inductors or the charging or discharging of capacitors.


How arc take place in circuit breaker?

When an electrical circuit is opened an arc is created. This is because of the collapsing magnetic field cutting the conductor and inducing a current in the same direction the current was flowing before the circuit was opened. The breaker is designed with arc shoots to extinguish the arc before it becomes hot and dangerous See related links below
