ELECTRICAL PARAMETERS : SINGLE PHASE
Wires are conducting materials which are made of copper /aluminum and sometimes from other metals. It is used to conduct power from the point where it is generated to the point where it is used. Wires are all electrical conductors but not all conductors are wires. These wires are either made of solid or stranded. Most wires are round and are manufactured with or without insulation depending upon the application. All wires have resistance that oppose the unlimited flow of current and causes voltage drop resulting in the eventual heat developed in the wire. There is limit to the degree of heat that various types of wire insulation and sizes can safely withstand. They should not be allowed to reach a temperature that night cause a fire.
