What causes Electrical Faults?

Often times, when electrical devices near the end of their life, they just stop working efficiently. In some cases, their wear and tear may expose wires, cause friction, and pose a hazard. Human accidents, like mowing through an electrical cable, can also cause electrical faults.

Here are some types of electrical faults that can occur in a circuit:

  • Open Circuit Fault – When an electricity circuit is broken, electricity flow is interrupted and a fault occurs. These kinds of faults occur as a result of the element burning, a broken wire, a loose connection, or rusting.

 

  • Short Circuit Fault – When a power supply comes in contact with a live or neutral wire that has no load, a fault can occur due to a blown fuse. These kinds of faults occur when a connection becomes loose or insulation fails.

 

  • Earth Fault – When an appliance becomes live, this is usually a result of an Earth fault. An earth fault can give you an electric shock and it’s normally as a result of a loose or damaged connection.
