Components of Electrical Installation

All the residential and commercial premises contains electrical installation. An electrical installation refers to joining of installed electrical equipment with a common electrical supply. For this purpose, a network of wires has to be used. Typically, these installations comprise of three types of wires i.e. live wire (red colour), neutral wire (black colour) and earth wire (green colour).

Amongst this wiring system of electrical installations, black wire is called hot wire. It carries the electricity from the breaker panel into the switch or light source. The white wire is named as neutral wire, which takes any unused electricity and current for sending back to the breaker panel.

The most common type of wiring in modern homes takes the form of nonmetallic (NM) cable. It contains two or more individual wires wrapped inside a protective plastic sheathing. NM cable usually comprises of one or more hot (current-carrying) wires, a neutral wire, and a ground wire.

The regulation governing these installations in the UK is the British Standard BS 7671 “Requirements for Electrical Installations”. It is informally called by the UK electrical community as “The Regs”. It is the national standard in the UK for electrical installations and also for the safety of electrical wiring in residential, commercial, industrial, and other buildings.
