    We can just see flicker in our home. Indeed The term flicker is derived from the impact of the voltage fluctuation on lamps such that they are perceived by the human eye to flicker. Loads that can exhibit continuous, rapid variations in the load current magnitude can cause voltage variations that are often referred to as flicker.
