# Is the neutral voltage zero?How the current goes back through the path if zero

I do not think there is a phase that does not recognize these three spheres – phase, neutral, or Earth. As much as I do not know why they remain ignorant.

## Read the excerpt on Earthing and Neutral

Now let’s say in the original terms we might know them well. But some questions are sometimes shooking their head –

1. Is the neutral voltage absolutely zero? How does the current go back to that path if it is zero? And where does it go back?
2. Earthing & Neutral What is one thing? How do they stay
3. Where is the difference of Surge Arrester with Earthing?

Let us find solutions to these questions today.

## Is exactly the neutral voltage zero? How does the current go back to that path if it is zero? And where does it go back?

It would be wrong to say that the neutral point’s voltage is zero. There is some voltage that is negligible. Zero is assumed relative to the surroundings. what’s the reason?

Well, what would you do if you were allowed to calculate the voltage of a point in a circuit?

Must catch a voltmeter between one Actual point & another reference point ???? Because the voltage exists between two points. If the voltage of the reference point is zero, then we have the advantage of Actual Voltage Calculations.

Let me clear this up more:  Suppose we say the height of the mountain is 5 feet above sea level. Here the height of the sea is calculated as zero. But he remains at a height. Therefore, the minimum voltage of the neutral is assumed to be zero so that the phase-neutral actual voltage can be calculated. So even if theoretically zero is not practically zero.

If there is no voltage pressure, how will the current return?

And this current goes back to its source. The thing is, the seawater evaporates and it rains back into the sea.

## Earthing & Neutral What is one thing? How do they stay?

One question that many have in mind is, is a neutral tie an Earthing? It’s not unusual for the question to come to mind. Because of the current escapes through two paths. So it may happen. Both are the way out of the current, but there are definitely differences between them.

Neutral is the point at which the current exits. Without the neutral, the circuit would not be complete. And in this way, the current always returns.

And Earthing is my protection. If there is a surge current in the circuit then it goes to the ground through the Earth. In this case, the Earthing War behaves like a short circuit. So Neutral is the main current & Earthing is the way out of the unwanted current.

Sometimes the Neutral & Earthing body may or may not be together. Particularly, the substations have neutral point earth so that the system does not overflow. And we use the 2pin plug where the same wire is used for Neutral & Earthing and the 3 pin plugs have a Neutral & Earthing War.

## Where is the difference of Surge Arrester with Earthing?

There is no difference between Arthur and Surge Arrester. It’s a kind of Grounded Surge Arrester.
There are some types of surge arrests that have no connection to the ground. So not all Earthing Surge Arresters but all Surge Arrester Arthur’s.
