( Electrical engineering : Electrical power )
A grounded neutral fault cannot coexist with load current because this would result in large amounts
of load current returning through ground, causing a ground fault to be detected.
Even with a grounded neutral the neutral wire carries power in normal operation, whereas the ground never carries
power unless there is a fault.
Grounded neutral is the situation in which the neutral wire of an electrical supply system is connected
