This learning object has some errors that need attention.

The ground wire does not carry a current in normal operation.

There is not one wire coming from the power company to the user.

This really needs review, it seems to of mixed a block diagram view vs a circuit view.

Enjoy! Tim

Slide #21 states that the ground wire carries no current in normal operation. "It only carries current when something goes wrong with the current".
