Different countries have different legal limits to how much their electricity supply voltages may vary. In the UK, for example, the nominal supply voltage for residential supplies is 230 V, but this is allowed to vary between -6% and +10%. So, as you can see, and 'actual' voltage of 250 V is within the allowable upper limit (253 V) for the nominal voltage of 230 V. So, to answer your question, you need to check what the allowable variation is at your location (your electricity supplier can confirm this) -I would guess that 250 V would be well within the allowance for 240 V.

What is meant by nominal current or nominal voltage?

The word nominal means the lowest possible safe amount. So, nominal  current or nominal voltage is the lowest amount necessary to  perform an electrical function like keepin

What is nominal voltage?

It is the rated voltage of an electric equipment. It is the voltage at which the device is designed to operate. Another Answer Nominal means 'named'. So a nominal voltage is

Can you use a 240 Volt bulb in a 250 Volt lamp?

Yes if the bulb is an incandescent type of bulb.    Further InformationThe voltage printed on a lamp is its nominal, or named, value. For example, the nominal voltage of

I have my 120 volt appliance and in Philippines we have 240 volt. Can a 110 - 250 volt adapter be used?

An adapter can be used. Make sure that the adapter that you use is of a capacity that it can produce the amperage that your appliance needs. An adapter too small will burn its

Why on a certain 460 volts one leg to ground shows no voltage but when you have a reading on each phase 230 volts?

My first thought is this is probably a corner grounded delta system, but I'm confused by your voltages. If this was a 460v (L-L voltage) ungrounded or corner grounded system,

Is your battery bad if the voltage reads 10.5 volts dc?

First it would depend upon the type and voltage rating of the battery. If it is a lead acid battery, I would recommend charging it to its recommended voltage and load testing

Can you plug a 120-240 volt appliance into a 125-250 volt outlet?

To get the actual household voltage range figures for your locality it is best to ask a local licensed electrician or your local electricity supply company.   As long as yo

Is there a converter from 110 volt to 240 volt?

Yes, it comes in the form of a transformer. Small transformers are available to power small appliances which draw only small currents. These are mostly consumer devices such

Your volt meter reads 16 volts at the battery at idle The alternator and voltage regulator have been replaced Do you have a problem?

Alternator Output Voltage Range  Generally, alternator output voltage is consider OK if it is in the range between 12 1/2 volts to a maximum of 16 volts.  Therefore, althoug

A circuit has a voltage of 240 volts and an inductive reactance of 30 ohms what is the current flow?

A circuit with a voltage of 240 volts and an inductive reactance of 30 ohms would have a current of 8 amperes.   Reactance works just like resistance. The difference is

Why does the voltage on every other breaker in your box read 104 volts while the other breakers read 124 volts?

You may not have a good connection one your "neutral" wire, somewhere between the breaker panel and the transformer. Note that the neutral wire is the center of the 240 V fe

Can you plug a 120 240 volt appliance into a 125 250 volt outlet?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. Yes, the voltage ratings on electrical equipment are the responsibility of the manufacturer. The manufac
