Borges Posted August 13, 2008 Report Share Posted August 13, 2008 Hi! Consider a single winding of a three phase transformer or generator which is star connected and the neutral grounded. The polarities of the emf change every half cycle. But when we place a line tester at the phase terminal then it glows but if we place it on the neutral it doesnt glow even when the neutral has the positive polarity every half cycle. Can nayone explain the theory behind it. Its bit confusing for me. I consider that the neutral is grounded and we measure with tester with respect to ground so there is no potential difference to glow the tester whether it is positive half cycle or negative. Now what if we have a un grounded neutral or a single phase transformer with both the leads floating. Which will be positive and negative. will a tester glow if it is touched to a ny terminal? Plese answer this. Regards Borges Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
