In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Shunt (electrical Instrument Component)


A precision resistor installed in parallel with a voltage measuring instrument to measure the amount of current flowing in a circuit. Load current flows through the shunt and produces a voltage drop proportional to the amount of current flowing through it. A millivoltmeter whose dial is calibrated in amps is used to read the voltage drop across the shunt. The standard shunt used with aircraft ammeters produces a voltage drop of 50 millivolts when the shunt's rated current flows through it.
