Re: Why is neutral conncted to ground in the fuse box/panel?
We have had this discussion several times. Typical electrical distribution system used MGN - multi-grounded neutral.
The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires Neutral be grounded at the Service entrance panel. That is also the location were safety ground if bonded to Neutral. As robbin posted the main disconnect is the only location the two can be connected together.
More details about service entrance requirements.
Thanks for the links, now when I have the proper terms I can find more interesting links.
Again just for my curiosity not for doing anything, I leave that to the professional.
