First of all, be careful. I don't know if hotwire is the right word to use. There is actually an interface you can purchase that will allow you to connect a generator to your home and run it off of that. If you are talking about stealing electricity, you are seriously out of luck here.
If you want to power your house during a power failure. Buy a transfer switch that will take your house completely off of the grid. If you back feed a panel and the voltage gets into the grid. You can KILL a lineman. You will be held liable for any damage you cause. Lawyers will be on your steps for years. The safe way without a switch. Is to use cords and only run what you need.
The white is neutral. The house does have a neutral wire even though it may be black. One of those black wires is the neutral and the other is the hot wire. You will have to determine which is hot and which is neutral. You can easily do this with a voltage tester. The wire that lights the tester is the hot. When you wire the light simply wire the hot to hot, and the white and green to the other wire.
It can, but you will not have a ground wire. I have my generator hooked this way for my house for emergency power, but my neutral wire is also bonded to ground by a ground rod.
That depends if it is automotive or household wiring. On a car a black wire is almost always ground. On house wiring black is the supply (hot) wire.That depends if it is automotive or household wiring. On a car a black wire is almost always ground. On house wiring black is the supply (hot) wire.
No, there are different occasions when the red of a three wire cable gets used as a hot wire. There also times when the white wire gets used as a hot but has to be re identified as a hot with marking tape. When wiring baseboard heaters the cable used is red and black with no white wire in the set.
In a DC circuit, such as a car, the RED wire is usually the positive (hot) and the black wire is the negative (ground) In an AC circuit, such as your house, in the US both black and red are "hot" wires, with white being neutral.
Magnets and wire.
You cannot convert a 3 phase generator to single phase. If the generator is a 4 wire generator you can connect a single phase load between the neutral wire and any one phase wire. Just make sure the voltage of the generator and the load are the same. If you have what is known as a 12 lead generator. You can change the voltage and phase to what you need. But if it is a four wire 3 phase unit it cannot be changed. As the other poster stated.
An electrical generator works by moving a coil of wire relative to a magnetic field.
If you live in Europe, then the brown wire is the line ('hot') conductor; a blue wire is the neutral conductor, and a yellow/green striped wire is the protective (earth) conductor.
yellow is the live or hot
Very literally, hot wire is a wire that is hot. Pertaining to vehicles, to hot wire a vehicle is to start the engine or motor of the vehicles without the use of the ignition.
An Electric Generator.A device with magnets and coils of wire that produce electricity is a generator. In an automobile it is called an alternator.
It is most likely a wire that was left there after the pre wiring of the house, for a connection to a garbarator if the homeowner installed one.
a hot wire is a living wire or positively charged wire and a neutral is the ground or negative
The narrower prong is the hot wire!
Coils of wire and a magnet. When magnetic lines of force move across a wire, it causes electrons in the wire to move. Those moving electrons are electrical current. In a generator, either the magnet or the coils of wire spin.
Power outages can be difficult for families. They can also lead to potential problems with the house itself. A house power generator may be a solution. Pick a generator large enough to keep necessary electric appliances and equipment running during power outages. Losing heat, hot water and food storage are three major concerns during a power outage. Don't let cold food spoil or the house freeze. A generator can get get you through a blackout.
the hot wire goes to the starter and the ground wire bolts to the engine block.
If wired correctly the red wire will be hot, but any wire can be hot regardless of colour if done incorrectly.
a hot wire has more resistance then a cold wire.
When you are trying to determine which wire is the hot wire then you must assume all of them are. Use a voltmeter to determine which line is hot and which is neutral. Never assume a wire is hot or not because of its identification unless you are very familiar with the circuit.
You can hot wire a boat. It just matters what type it is.
Live wire is called a hot wire, as this is the wire that gives the current. Earth wire is a ground wire. So one is hot, and one is ground.
