How can this be - Leakage?

Recommended Posts

I have had similar experiences in places where there are so many resorts and private houses (Samui and Pai for example), it seems that the "engineers" do not know how to calculate how much electricity is needed to cover the request!
Where I am now (outside tourist destinations) I missed the power supply 4 times for a few seconds, it is generally very stable!

Also possible the OP crossed terminals at the initial monitor. 35V neutral to ground isn't an abnormal reading either. 

Very unlikely.

For background, the electricity from PEA is notoriously bad in our area. That's why I have the tester in a socket monitoring continuously and have been for several months.

 

I measured from many locations in the house and at the panel. Same readings.

The professional (repeat.. he only does large commercial projects) used his own equipment and measured several different places.

Readings were consistent.

Not sure that this helps, it's the panel which I have easy access to and all indoor outlets connect to this. The house ground also connects to it. House ground is about a meter away, driven down below the floor.

I am no electrician but, i can't see a circuit breaker on your board.

Maybe you also need glasses 😉 I can see 18 one main incoming and two of them are RCBOs

I can see one 2-pole main circuit breaker, 15 normal circuit breakers (MCBs) and two earth leakage breakers (RCBOs).

 

The RCBOs are the longer units to the right.

The ones with the letters RCBO on each of the two 😉

Good to see info which suggests the integrity of your installation is intact. But possibly the earth may not be.

 

Could well have been an issue which PEA detected (after their works) and remedied. What are/have been your logged readings since your concern?

 

Without a normal reference, logged values are pretty much irrelevant. Nothing to compare your anomalies to.

 

What did you reference your readings to?
