In this paper, we test experimentally the hypothesis that the common mode current at any point in an in-house electrical network can be calculated as the linear combination of two types of sources, namely the input differential mode voltages and the input common mode currents. The results show an excellent agreement between theory and measurements, thus lending strong support to the hypothesis.
