Question: What causes ground loops?

A ground loop is caused by the interconnection of electrical equipment that results in there being multiple paths to ground, so a closed conductive loop is formed. These ambient magnetic fields passing through the ground loop will induce a current in the loop by electromagnetic induction.

Are ground loops bad?

Ground loops are a major cause of noise, hum, and interference in audio, video, and computer systems. Removal of safety ground connections to equipment in an effort to eliminate ground loops also eliminates the protection the safety ground connection is intended to provide.
