Breaker Panel (Circuit Breaker Panel)
The central distribution point that houses circuit breakers, controlling and protecting the electrical circuits in a building.


A closed loop of wiring through which an electric current can flow.
A protective tube or channel used to encase and protect electrical wires.
The flow of electric charge, typically measured in amperes.


Electrical Code
A set of standards and regulations that govern the installation and maintenance of electrical systems to ensure safety.
Electrical Insulation
Materials used to prevent the flow of electric current, protecting against shocks and other hazards.


Commonly used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings to ensure a continuous power supply for critical systems and appliances. Common generator fuel sources are:
  • Gasoline
  • Diesel
  • Natural Gas
  • Propane
  • Solar Energy
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)
A device designed to quickly shut off power to a circuit in the event of a ground fault, preventing electric shock.

See entries: Circuit, Grounding

Connecting electrical systems to the ground to prevent electrical shock and reduce the risk of fire. Electricians follow established codes and standards to implement effective grounding systems in various installations.


Junction Box
A protective enclosure that houses electrical connections, preventing exposure and reducing the risk of fire.


The device or component in a circuit that consumes electrical power.


The unit of electrical resistance in a circuit.

See entries: Resistor

A point in an electrical wiring system where current can be taken to supply electrical devices.


Power Surge
A sudden and temporary increase in voltage within an electrical circuit or system. Power surges can occur for various reasons, and they can potentially damage or degrade electronic devices and equipment connected to the affected circuit. Common causes of power surges are:
  • Lightning Strikes
  • Switching of High-Powered Electrical Devices
  • Power Grid Fluctuations
  • Faulty Wiring or Electrical Components

See entries: Surge Protector


A device that resists the flow of electric current, often used to control the amount of current in a circuit.

See entries: Ohm


Short Circuit
A low-resistance connection between two points in an electrical circuit, leading to an excessive flow of current.

See entries: Circuit, Current

Surge Protector
A device designed to protect electrical appliances from voltage spikes and power surges.

See entries: Power Surge


A device that changes the voltage of electric power, typically used in power distribution.

See entries: Voltage


Voltage (V)
The force that drives electric current, measured in volts.


The measure of electrical power, indicating the rate at which electrical energy is used.
Wire Gauge
The size of the wire, measured by its gauge, which affects the amount of current it can carry safely.
