What is the Difference Between Neutral, Ground and Earth?

What is the Difference Between Neutral, Ground and Earth

The Main difference between Neutral, Ground and Earth? ‪To understand the difference between Neutral, Ground and Earth, we must understand the need of these things first. Neutral Neutral is return path for an AC circuit which is supposed to carry current in normal condition. This current may be because of many reasons, primarily because of phase current imbalance and some …

The Main Difference between Linear and Nonlinear Circuit

Difference between Linear and Nonlinear Circuit

The Main Difference between Linear and Nonlinear Circuit Linear Circuit In simple words, a linear circuit is an electric circuit in which circuit parameters (Resistance, inductance, capacitance, waveform, frequency etc) are constant. In other words, a circuit whose parameters are not changed with respect to Current and Voltage is called Linear Circuit. Fundamentally, the word “linear” literally means “along with …
