Hi Timmy - The standard power outlet that you have on the wall is a single phase 240V outlet. There is an active (hot) cable that sends 240V to the application plugged in and a neutral cable that returns the voltage. There is also an earth (ground) connector that is there to reduce your risk of electrocution should things go bad.Timmyp said:Hey everyone,
The first of what may seem like a lot of simple questions to some of you!!
Could you explain to me what 3-phase electricity is in relation to a standard electrical supply?
Your help is much appreciated
Unless I am wrong, 1 watt = 1 joule per second and 1 volt = 1 joule per ampere per second and an ampere is an SI base unit.gabe said:
