What is an electrical surge

A surge is a sudden, short-lived wave of current, voltage or power in an electric circuit. Surges are brief power/ over-voltage spikes or disturbances that can damage, degrade, or destroy any equipment / appliances within any home, commercial building, industrial, or manufacturing facility.

What is the source of an electrical surge

Power surge source can be inside of a building or outside of the building. The outside sources generally are grid changes from the utility company, lighting, grid failures etc. The inside house or building sources are switching on or off of an appliance that consumes a lot of electricity. In commercial and industrial set up surges can be introduced by large motors switching on or off, specially if they are unprotected from surges.

Large power surges such as from storms are not very common but, invisible and unaccounted small power surges happen on daily basis around us.

What can be damaged by a power surge
