Higher power circuits such as audio power amplifiers and voltage regulators pass significant currents. Under these conditions, the resistance of thin copper circuit board tracks can become important. To minimise this resistance, the connections to the 0 Volt line should be as close together as physically possible. This is called Single Point Earthing.
Failure to use single point earthing can have the following consequences ...
The circuit above is a power supply voltage regulator.
