  • The AC voltage supplied by an AC power line. This may vary from country to country, and consists of two nominal voltages. The lower number is primarily for lighting and small appliances, while the larger number is for heating and large appliances. In Canada and the United States, for example, the nominal voltages are approximately 115/230. Also called AC line voltage.
  • The voltage supplied by a power line, especially at the point of utilization.
