Appliance Technician: Engineer-Tech, Home Appliance Technician replied 10 months ago

"Connected load" just means that when the appliance is drawing current from the voltage source, that the readings you will get at the voltage source will be different than when the appliance is not connected or "plugged in". For example, you might get 240 volts at the junction box when the cook top is not connected. But when you connect it and turn it on, you may have 230 volts at the junction box because the current draw of the cook top (load), creates a voltage drop in the wiring (due to slight resistance) in the house that reduces the voltage at the junction box. Readings that you get when a load is connected are more true than when the load is not connected - since the wiring is being put to task.
