According to Zest Weg, there are misconceptions around what constitutes “earth” (or “ground”) and “neutral” connections, and misunderstanding the differences can create serious problems when connections are made from on-site transformers or other sources. This usually leads to earth leakage systems under-performing and compromising the safety of the equipment and operators. The neutral connection in an electrical installation is designed to carry current all the time, while the earth connection is only supposed to carry current for a short period to trip your protection switch.Where this is not understood and the installation is not done correctly, the trip system will not work properly. In addition to this, stray currents are created which could cause other problems. Many farmers use the neutral connection as the earth when they do an electrical installation. Current carried on a grounding conductor can result in significant or even dangerous voltages on equipment enclosures.
