Electrical problem improved, but not quite fixed


Recommended Posts

I live on the big island of Luzon. Province of Nueva Vizcaya. Lived and worked in the Elevator industry for over 40 yrs. NYC. USA. Yes i have my own line transformer. I have the 200 amps. main breaker service as i have lots of stuff running especially in the summer months. 

Here we have the two wire supply , no third grounding leg and it is suppose to be 220 VAC but as i said i am lucky if i get 190 VAC. Very humid here and i think that is why the connection in the breaker box got a little loosen. If and when you build here i would suggest to pay close attention to the electrical installation. So far all my wiring is good. house built going on 7 yrs. now.

Might be a good idea to check to see if you have the same going on. Our house has had electrical problems for a year or 2.  Kind of minor stuff but still known.  One indicator was the LED light o

Ok you have  the 2 hot no neutral supply system, same as the VECO area of Cebu

your GFIC is build into the outlet ?    those are very much more sensitive than what is used in europe

in europe the GFIC is at the breaker box covering the whole installation

the nominal voltage in philippines  is 230 v,  here it is right now 240, it is normally between 235 to 242

Yes i only have GFCI in the Kitchen and bathrooms. Very sensitive. Over here in my area the service is not good and the line is over loaded. Really thinking of going solar. Abundance of sunshine here. Many whole day brown out or black out. The cost of electricity is very high.
