Voltage level is an important characteristic of voltage. Approximately 20 years ago, the nominal voltage for low voltage networks was normalized at 230 V. However, this nominal voltage cannot be uniformly delivered at the point of connection. Voltage is affected by the loads of generators connected to the network. In the Voltage Level course, several aspects of voltage level will be discussed, as well as the increase and decrease of voltage level, the causes of these increases and decreases, voltage limits, and the requirements that apply to devices and installations.
