Question by amir29malik: what is the difference between automatic voltage regulator & voltage control unit?
this automatic voltage regulator or voltage control unit is used in diesel generator electrical side to share the load.

Answer by Kes
It is hard to say without the technical manual for your specific diesel generator (which I assume is much larger than a home-type gasoline unit). But the names suggest that the “automatic voltage regulator” will control voltage within an acceptabe range without the user making adjustments and the “voltage control unit” suggests that the user can adjust (trim) the voltage as desired for sensitive applications. Voltage output may drop as the electrical load is increased from idle to maximum load and the automatic regulator would compensate and minimize the drop (voltage droop).

How does being grounded allow electricity to flow through you?

Question by ScienceGuy: How does being grounded allow electricity to flow through you?
Doesn’t electricity have to return to the source to be able to electrocute? Why do electric power lines need to have a ground?

Answer by Daryan T
i can’t be specific, but think of it like a paper pipe. when water enters one end and leaves the other, everything works fine. but when the water has no way out, it can ruin the pipe (electrocute you because it has no way out so it just goes crazy). It’s a bit of a rough analogy but you get the point.
