Allow me to help expand your knowledge of American English. Perhaps going forward you could use a dictionary and become more independent as your knowledge grows:

outlet [ out-let, -lit ]
a point on a wiring system at which current is taken to supply electric devices.
Also called outlet box. the metal box or receptacle designed to facilitate connections to a wiring system.

Power cord wiring is not 'connected' to an outlet, but rather is usually plugged into the outlet. The power cord wiring includes the plug which plugs into the outlet. FWIW what we typically refer to as an outlet is more specifically a receptacle.
