Fun with electricity.

I’m trying to force-feed myself a bit of electrical theory. It’s not really a requirement of my new position, but it will help with with isolating and diagnosing issues on the microscopes. Thus far, it may as well be in a foreign language for all I’m really absorbing (the math puts me to sleep). With time, I’m sure I’ll pick some of it up.

Anyway, found a couple of youtube videos you might enjoy. One is of a High Voltage Cable Inspection, and the other is a brief snippet of a 500kV switch being opened. The guys that do the cable inspection must have testicles the size of bowling balls… made me pee a little just watching them…
