Normally in our 230V power outlet, the voltages are as given below.
Neutral to Earth - Less than 2V
Neutral to Phase - 200V to 230V
Earth to Phase - 200V to 230V
But nowadays, after around 10 am, until the evening, these voltages change as below with some variations as the day progresses.
Neutral to Earth - 77V
Neutral to Phase - 228V
Earth to Phase - 282V
After the inspection by the power distributor in our neighboring firm, it was found that there is a short between the phase line to the body of an electrical panel when the power switch of a fan is turned on. But they have not rectified the problem yet. So our electrician shorted the neutral to earth (ground) at our power entry point. Now the neutral to earth voltage is close to zero.
But is this a good solution?
