Ground is where potatoes and carrots live.Originally posted by Iwan@Oct 19 2004, 04:17 AM
Hi all ,
It may be a stupid and funny question,but do everyone know what exactly ground is?
Why some simulation software need ground to start the simulation?
Thanks for the answer
I'm familiar with power distribution. I never meant to imply ground wasn't real for power distribution. Of course it is real.. it is a real reference and a big one too. Oh and a lousy one too..Originally posted by beenthere@Oct 19 2004, 06:44 PM
You're right about the reference point aspect, Optikon, but for power distribution, the earth is a very real ground. All AC power is distributed with the earth acting as a point of reference and an attachment. That's why the ground buss in your house's breaker panel is wired out to a copper rod buried in the ground. That way, when an appliance or an instrument case is grounded, it can't develop a potential and become a shock hazard. Potatoes and carrots and a great source/sink for electrons.
