In India we have 50 Hz +- 2Hz !! Clocks that run on mains frequency needed to be modified with a NS chip that ran off a NTSC color xtal.
Homes used to be "All electric" in the old days with 3 phase (Like mine). I have had the neutral in the cable burn up due to road digging and lost a lot of equipment due to imbalance.
Now most homes are single phase 220v.

>>Is 3 phase standard in (some/most/?) European homes?

>In Sweden it is fairly common to have three-phase in the house or apartment. I suspect this is true for many neighbouring countries.
>Norway at least used to have a 230 VAC rather than 400 VAC three-phase with no real null. Hope they build themselves away from that.
