Ground And Neutral


Ground And Neutral - as the neutral point of an electrical supply system is often connected to earth ground ground and neutral are closely related under certain conditions a conductor used to connect to a system neutral is also used for grounding earthing of equipment and structures the neutral and ground are generally connected together at your service panel not at your devices at the device neutral is the path for return current all the current that es from the hot leg returns through the neutral wire p div div class b algotextcarousel id ce carousel 705460255 25 div id slideexp1 525f6ac class b slideexp data wire i slideexp init b select i f selected o f active o data control id slideexp1 525f6a data appns serp data k 5595 1 data stk div class b overlay div id slideexp1 525f6achevrons prevbtn class btn disabled prev rounded bld data dir div class bg span span div div class vcac div style height 32px margin.

ac anyway the ground wire should only carry current in the case of a fault condition in the usa residential ground wires are often just bare uncovered copper when plugging in a grounded appliance or other device the ground wire gets attached to the chassis say for ex le that the insulation on your hot wire gets damaged and the conductor es into contact with the metal body of your washing machine the current shorts through the chassis and then through the ground wire this high current causes your circuit breaker or fuse to trip if you didn t have the ground wire then the mains voltage would electrify the entire chassis then the next person touching it be es the return path div div class b textcarouselfooter div class b bestanswer best answer div div class b separator 183 div div class b upvote img class rms img src data image svg xml base64 phn2zyb4bwxucz0iahr0cdovl3d3dy53my5vcmcvmjawmc9zdmciihzpzxdcb3g9ijagmcaxniaxnii.
