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