Is there a good way to guess the power line voltage based on the number of insulator discs that attach the line to the transmission tower? Wikipedia seems to suggest that there is a "Typical number ...
In this YouTube video (scrolled to 5:55) there's a claim that replacing an AC high voltage transmission line with a high voltage DC transmission line allows for having seven times fewer powerlines ...
I've been lurking for some time on the board here - but hadn't had occasion to ask a question until now: Does anyone have experience with power distribution networks and their impacts on sensitive ...
Recently I found this video of a 500 kilovolts line being opened under load. When the switch contacts are pulled apart an electric arc predictably starts. While the contacts are close to each other ...
