Which part did you do?


touchmyzombiebutt

The relay protection side. We had a relay tech per control house. I was in charge of the 115kV.

Not this Sub in particular, but I'd been the Schmuck dressing out, processing & testing those XFMRs. Gawd I hate units with oil preservation.

We had NASS process our 7 single phase 500kV-230kV Tx here. I definitely respect all the work involved getting them built right from pad up to the bushings. A lot of work.


sd90matt

500kv. I bet everytime you touched your truck or trailer you got zapped.

Fun tip. Take your meter and hold one lead with your hand, hold it at your head, and bring the common to ground potential. Last time I did this my body was at 600V potential under a 115kV bus.


sd90matt

Or was it not energized yet?


touchmyzombiebutt

The last part was energizing the 500kV line but oh yeah, it'll bite you on anything metal underneath it.

Yer cake day is happy. Guess here in the 'Meruca, inductance is stronger?


2centdude

Whack a bonding lead from your substation earth Grid to the truck. In NSW Australia this is common practise


sd90matt

More inductance here in the States I suppose? Always ground the truck, tanker & processor. Still get the "arcin-n-sparkin" in the high KV yards


sd90matt

I mean it's not like "ZAP yer dead." More like "ZAP from touching your doorknob in winter after shuffling your feet X-100. Not deadly, just hurtry.

Nice substation- There bass in that pond? :-)
