I'm working with isolation transformers and I need to know the concept of power utility pole mounted isolation transformer because they are related.
If the neutral of North American pole utility is not grounded below the the pole, the neutral is said to be floating (as shown below). But how can you get a shock by touching it by there is no direct path to ground?
Remember the secondary of utility transformers are just like the concept of isolation transformers. If you don't ground the secondary, then you can safety work on equipments as there is no direct path to ground so even if you accidentaly touch one wire and ground, you won't get a shock. But how come I read reports of people getting a shock when they touch a neutral that is not grounded at the utility pole? What is the path to ground in the pole utility isolation transformers?
