Craig Michaud, an Electrical Instructor, demonstrates how to control a 100 amp and 200 amp panel.
A majority of houses have a 200amp circuit breakers panel. There are two “hot” wirings black and red will have 120 volts flowing across them, creating the total voltage of 240volts. The circuit is complete by the presence of a white or a.k.a. “neutral” wire. In order to get the initial method for disconnecting, the “neutral” and the “ground” need to be combined. Turn off the circuit breaker (usually an enormous, black switch) so that power is prevented from reaching the wires , or different areas on the panel like the bus bars.
Verify that your main breaker’s rating is 100 amps. This will allow you to recognize 100 amp breaker panels. There are also two “bus bars” inside the panel, and power flows through them after the breaker has been switched on. To shut off the device that is the primary one the second device, you need to mix the neutral and ground pins.
The parts you are familiar with and the way the power flows through them will allow you to know what’s safe and. what’s dangerous. vxolkvr2t3.
