I use a circuit breaker of the Simpowersystems library to connect the ac source to the rest of the circuit and as a result the circuit breaker switching causes a current peak.As I cannot use other protection elements of the Electronics library,what can I do with the available Simpowersystems elements to limit the current peak?thank you in advance

Very important question! I face the same problem and i cannot find any way to limit the inrush current when using SimPowerSystem. And as i can see there is no response to this issue from Mathworks guys for almost a year!
