differance b|w ground, neutral&earth..

Answer / priyadharsini

Ground and earth are same.the current flow in earth/ground
when fault occurs.

Neutral is used as a return path. current flow only when
closed path is there.
current flow in neutral under normal conditions.

Answer / rr0505

Neutral provides return/ balancing path for the phase
currents and completes the circuit. Neutral can also be
Earthed at source end as per system requirement.
Earth refers to system at mother earth potential, essential
for human sefety.
Ground refers to virtual earth system in Electronic
circuitries in appliances as also Aircrafts/ Automobiles,
etc.

Answer / sk sazzadur rahaman(iamsazz@ya

Ground and earth are both same. This means connected to
ground ie always remain zero potential. Neutral means tle
lower potential of the supply source with respect to
another potential of the same supply source.

Answer / bandaru aravind

CONNECTING NON-ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENTS (SUCH AS BODY
EARTHINGS)TO GROUND IS CALLED EARTHING & CONNECTING
ELECTRICAL BODIES (SUCH AS NEUTRAL EARTHING AND WHICH ARE
DIRECTLY GIVEN 2 EQUIPMENTS)IS CALLED GROUNDING.......
