A direct current solid state circuit breaker requires only two terminals to be connected into the direct current circuit, and the current value at which the breaker interrupts the circuit can be varied. The circuit breaker generates a voltage that is proportional to the circuit current. This voltage is used to control a solid state switch that is used to interrupt the circuit. Turn-off time is enhanced by feedback of the voltage in a regenerative manner.
