Entry from British & World English dictionary
An electric current which flows briefly in a circuit after the voltage is reduced to zero, due to the momentum of the charge carriers.
- Analysis of the blocked states in the presence of maltohexaose shows that the residual current per monomer is zero within the accuracy of our measurements.
- A measurement of the residual current at the potential of the generator electrode will serve for the calculation of the current efficiency.
- Choosing the right type of residual current circuit breaker is an important element in ensuring protection from electric shocks.
