    What happens to the voltage/current on the neutral wire?

    If we had 4 appliances to power, one in every room of a house, Once the current passes through them all, the remaining voltage & current is said to "pass back to the source via the neutral wire" Is this an accurate mental model? From what I see, most Neutral wires are somewhere down the line...

    Wago topjob current ratings

    Hello Can anyone confirm for me what the following spec for a Wago TopJob 2202-1201 din rail connector means? The connector can accept max 4mm solid core cable, so does this mean (see bottom row) the connector can cope with 32A? The row above says rated current is only 24A though? I’m easily...

    Why is this happening? Electric current but no light.

    Im not sure why the light does not come on. Tried 3 different bulbs. Voltage is passing through the black and red wire. The bulb too. Tried 3 bulbs.

    Current rating for tumble dryer?

    I have just bought a tumble dryer that has come supplied with A 13A fuse. The manual says it has come with a special plug, that must be plugged into a 16A rated socket. Surely if I plugged it into a 16A socket and it tried to draw more than 13A it would blow? Can I plug this into a normal 13A...

    Neutral current in a single phase installation confusion

    In a 3 phase system the neutral carries current that is unbalanced. Okay. So in a single phase domestic household the neutral carries the same current as the live otherwise the RCD will trip. So does that mean if we have a perfectly balanced 3 phase system then if I go to one of the phases and...

    Fluke multimeter current

    When I use Fluke multimeter clamp-type [true RMS meter] to measure AC current in a 3.5C XLPE cable, does it give the value of leakage current or RMS value of current per phase through the cable?

    Current leaking from sealed electrical in water?

    I’m designing a light fixture for underwater lights and everything was going great until I checked for any current leakage. All I have is a multimeter but my meter is reading 90 vac when lights are powered. The bulbs are being supplied with around 120 to 135v and the reading I get from the water...

    Current leaking through some On/Off switches?

    Hey! I bought a few simple on/off switches that you plug into a socket, and they have a single output which is either on or off depending on a toggle on the switch. It's AC current. However, as I put a LED onto one of them, I noticed it was dimly lit even after the switch was set to off...

    Residual Circuit Current Breaker triggering. Why?

    Hi! I'm new here, so, please, be gentle... Decided to add some extra features to my old and simple barn's electric system to make it safer and measure the consumption. It's a three phase 230/400 volt line. The neutral, as far as I know, is grounded at the step-down transformer. I don't have a...

    Solar How do I limit or feed inrush current for higher constant current use?

    How do I limit or feed inrush current for higher constant current use? If I could find solution, then the chosen battery cell type can have much lower Discharge/Charge rate. My product research found that lower Discharge/Charge rate cells are much lower price. So you can purchase more storage...
