I'm not conversant with European power distribution, but American residential power is split single phase, not three phase. That's 240 between the hot leads and 120 from either hot lead to ground. American residential hot leads have current 180 degrees apart, not 120 degrees as is found in 3-phase.The average voltage between the phase conductor and the neutral is 230 volts standard in Europe and 120 volts standard in North America.
The voltage between any two phases is 240 volts in North America and 415 volts in Europe. So beware of suggesting that the neutral at 240 volts has no function.
Formal definitions generally do not promote understanding. Often a loose and chatty explanation does this. The inquirer can then return to the formal with renewed vision.Theres no magic at the substations
As already noted, you are replying to a seven year old thread in which the thread starter has never posted since.I have a doubt..
In case of a ungrounded neutral System, why do we have the charging currents flowing into the ground,when we don't have the phase voltages with respect to the ground?
