How can you figure out the temperature of electricity?

    I have asked multiple electricians this very question and none of them had an answer. I am working on a project right now that hinges on the control of electrical temperature. This is my first post, thank you in advance.

    Electricity doesn't have a temperature, in a similar way that forces don't have a colour, or pressures don't have emotions, it just doesn't make any sense, these things have no associations or relationships.

    Heat may be generated with electricity and there are ways to control the heat generated to control a temperature (like a thermostat in an oven does), is that what you're trying to do?

    Please define the temperature of electricity and describe how it affects the project you refer to. Then we can help you with it.
