Do Not Hump

Funny sign on a xformer at work.



It's actually a term about how you couple/uncouple railroad cars so you don't damage the equipment.

Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.

50 MVA

161/13.8 kV

It's a small one to me. It's a 3 phase. The big boys are at the nuke plant. They are 500/22.5kV single phasers, 430MVA. We don't play with those anymore, another group took them over. They are monstorous.

Bah- only 22.5kV Kidding- those suckers put out a ton of current. The ones we build run much higher voltage, but relatively small current. Try 1MV, 1mA.

What happened to the first one (left)???
Ever heard of a fly in an SF6 bushing turning into trace amounts of carbon?

Well they do step up to 500kV....

161kV is the lowest voltage I work with excluding control circuits. All my equipment is on the highside of the xformers.

It's to see some other HV guys around here. Although our HV is only 13.8.

BTW-1rst tree rat touched the bushing. The concussion from the blast killed the second.

nice, our main problem in animals is stupid birds crapping on our bushings and arching over. Well that and stupid humans cutting copper. I am not sure anyone wants to pics of the second when things go wrong. I am sure you probably have. I hate when they bring those to the safety meetings.

That first squirrel is freaking done

That sign had me laughing pretty good. Someone knew what they were doing when they printed it and placed it!
