Asked in Technology
Should be current in earth pin yes or no and why?
No, because electrical systems use earth as a reference of zero potential, however lots of electrical appliances use the earth as a reference point and dump a small amount of current to earth all the time in order to limit power spikes which can damage micro electronics, as long as the earth pin has good contact with the main earth terminal in an electrical installation this is not a problem. some larger appliances like water heaters and electric oven also leak current to earth while they are in use. This is another reason why there should always be a good contact with the main earth terminal.

What is the function of a earth wire?
The earth wire connects the metal frame of the electrical appliances to the ground. The convention is to have green colour for earth wires. The purpose of earthing is that in case of an insulation failure in some appliance, this wire connected to the metal body will provide a path for the current to flow on the ground. In absence of earth wire, this fault current would have flown through the body of the operator, causing electrical shock.

What is earthgrounding wire?
Earth wire (or earth grounding wire) is a safety system which helps prevent electric shocks. It is connected to the electrical cable of an appliance. The earth wire connects the metal frame of the electrical appliances to the ground. The convention is to have green colour for earth wires. The purpose of earthing is that in case of an insulation failure in some appliance, this wire connected to the metal body will provide a path for the current to flow on the ground. In absence of earth wire, this fault current would have flown through the body of the operator, causing electrical shock.

How do you get hit by lightning?
Electricity will always find its way to Earth through the easiest route. As such, you are most likely to be struck by lightning if you provide the easiest route for an electrical current to earth itself. So, if you are holding a large, highly conductive metal pole in the middle of a field during a thunderstorm, where your large conductive metal pole is the closest path to earth for an electrical charge in the air, then the current will pass down the pole, through you, to earth. Voila.

How do work the earth leakage circuit breaker?
An earth leakage circuit breaker is a device use for protecting electrical appliances from excess current. An earth wire connects the appliance from the plug point to a metal plate in the ground. If excess current flows through the appliance the current will flow through the earth wire in the plug and directly towards the metal plate in the ground. This is called the earth leakage current. The excess current is dispersed in the ground. An earth leakage circuit breaker operates by means of a switch controlled by an electromagnet, a device consisting of an iron or steel core that is magnetised by electric current in a coil that surrounds it.

How Earth resistance meter works?
There are 3 terminals of an Earth Tester meter. Connect two terminals of meter to earth as far as cables can. Fix the two rods in to soil with the help of a small Hammer. Then connect two knobs of the meter with these rods.Connect the third terminal to the Earth Pit,to whom earth resistance is to be measured. The meter reading will indicate the resistance of the earth pit.The Best resistance of an earth pit must be under unity(<1). Answer BY: Naeem Ahmad Electrical Engineer.
How does line earth loop tester find Impedance of Supply System?
OK, well Earth Loop Tester have a permanent magnet in it. When we rotate it, the flux cut the the conductor and consequently an emf is produced. As we connect the two point of the tester to the earth it complete the circuit and current start flowing through it. The ratio of voltage and current give us the Impedance of Earth.
