Household Ac Wiring


Household Ac Wiring - ac wiring basics ac wiring when wiring to supply power you are creating an electrical circuit a continuous circuit consists of a hot wire a neutral wire and a ground electricity flows through the hot wire to a device or power recept ac le and back through the neutral wire the ground wire is meant to dispel any extra charge household wiring the standard u s household wiring design has two 120 volt hot wires and a neutral which is at ground potential the two 120 volt wires are obtained by grounding the centertap of the transformer supplying the house so that when one hot wire is swinging positive with respect to ground the other is swinging negative basic house wiring rules the first rule to remember is that basic house wiring can be dangerous never attempt to do it without a good understanding of how it works and safe work pr ac tices this article is intended to provide basic information and.

this disconnecting means from one side the other side enters the casing of the unit to be connected to the unit s terminal box like the neutral wire the ground wire is also connected to an earth ground however the neutral and ground wires serve two distinct purposes the neutral wire forms a part of the live circuit along with the hot wire in contrast the ground wire is connected to any metal parts in an appliance such as a microwave oven or coffee pot identifying house electric wiring colors the quickest way to identify house electrical wiring is by its color depending on where a wire ultimately gets installed you cannot always rely on the markings printed on the insulation coating nor will you always be able to read them legibly wiring methods black red and blue are used for hot wires and white is used as the neutral wire in a 120 208 v circuit brown orange and yellow are used as hot.
wires and gray is used as the neutral wire in a 277 480 v for grounding regardless of the voltage green is used
