I may be wrong, but I surmise that a significant number of wiring related
fires start due to excessive series resistance, rather than shunt
conductance. It's certainly the most common cause of overheating I have
Many times this was due to the "bad practice" of soldering multistrand wire
before poking it into a screw terminal. Surely I'm not the only one to have
a beef about this ?
