# What is the difference between a full-load current rated current?

1) Full load current : the greatest current that can flow in any electric circuit (Machine circuit , Electronics Circuits , ....etc ) under a specified conditions

2) Rated Current ( Nominal current ) : is the named value for the Circuit as it represent the current that a component , circuit ,device , system consumes, produces, or safely tolerates, when used in a given manner.

Also the rated current may be the maximum current that can be applied continuously under specified conditions without harming a component, circuit, device, system. ( so it can be the full load value )

For example, it may be a rating of the current drawn expressed in RMS amperes after a device is turned on and warmed up. The actual value, or interval of values, may not coincide with this number

In conclusion , the rated or nominal current is general expression for the current as it may represent the rms value , maximum value , Operating value for a machine or a device and so on , But the Full load current is the greatest current that can flow in a circuit Only.

### What is the difference between short circuit current and overload current?

Overload currents and short-circuit currents are categories of overcurrent. The difference is the magnitudes of the currents involved. An overload current is a current that exceeds the rated current of the conductors supplying the load, and is due to an excessively-high load. A short-circuit current is very much larger than an overload current, and is the fault current resulting from a low-resistance short circuit between line and neutral conductors. Read More

### What is the difference between over current and overload condition?

The term, 'overcurrent', describes either an 'overload current' or a 'short-circuit current'. An 'overload current' is a current that is higher than a circuit's 'rated current'. For example, if you have too many loads plugged into the same circuit, then the resulting current is an 'overload current'. A 'short-circuit current' is a large current resulting when a line ('hot') conductor accidentally makes contact with either a neutral conductor or an earth (ground) conductor. Read More

### What is difference between earth fault and ground fault?

They are the same thing. Earth and ground are the same thing. A ground/earth fault is a fault where part of the current returns back through a path other than the opposing hot or, more critically, neutral. A neutral/earth fault is dangerous because the circuit will continue to function normally, but the hot and neutral leg currents are imbalanced, and the chassis can become energized. Also, the earth conductor is not rated to carry operating… Read More

### If voltage is not equal to current then are insulators rated in voltage or current?

Insulators are always rated for voltage. Voltage, or potential difference, is the energy that is available to make the electrons jump from the conductor, through the insulator, to the next available conductor. Current is the electron flow through the wire. A great example of why current is not an issue in insulation issues is that you could have 1000 amps (the measurement of current) going through a wire at 1 volt and have no problem… Read More
