Difference between Ground and Neutral

1. Earth or Ground in a mains (AC power) electrical wiring system is a conductor that provides low impedance path to the earth to prevent hazardous voltages from appearing on equipment & brings back the fault current. Neutral is a circuit conductor that normally carries current back to the source, and is connected to Earth (Ground) at the main electrical panel.

2. Ground is not neutral while Neutral can be grounded.

3. Color of earth wire is green or green-yellow mixture. Color of neutral wire is black .
