General Order 95


Section II


Definitions of Terms as Used in The Rules of This Order


24.1     Voltage (or Volts) means the highest effective voltage between any two conductors of the circuit concerned except where, in certain rules, the term “voltage (or volts) to ground” is used.

When one circuit is directly connected to another circuit of higher voltage (as in the case of an autotransformer) both are considered as of the higher voltage unless the circuit of the lower voltage is effectively grounded. Direct connection implies electrical connection as distinguished from connection merely through electromagnetic or electrostatic induction.
