WHY DOES NEUTRAL DO NOT CARRY EVEN THOUGH IT CARRIES RETURN CURRENT?..

Answer / animesh

in single phase system, there will be a return current
always. if u touch the neutral u will get a shock.
but in case of 3 phase system,normally 0 current flows in
neutral bcz v1+v2+v3=0. u will experiecne a reverse current
shock only in case of unbalanced loading bcz of which phase
volatage changes and their vector sum is no more equal to 0.
