would not be as spectacular as you think. it would happen in a microsec and if you blink you miss it. I do not know of any powerplant that outputs a million volts. just doesnt exist in reality. And I also witnessed a 35.5 KV buried vaporize a person standing at the top of the hole when it blew. The line was supposed to be 2 blocks away.......... Dude standing there was GONE.........................VAPORIZED. NOTHING LEFT BUT a puddle of liquid. Imagine having to tell the man's wife he died and there is no body !! Yea I HAD that job...........and the memory isnt so fun either.

I always enjoy technical posting by WingAdmin and DenverWinger. You can trust them... they know what they are talking about... sometimes seriously, and sometimes humorously. I'm an old guy (80 yo) whose initial training was about vacuum tubes, but now still consulting about digital era factory automation projects. Over the years I've been amused by the layman's misunderstandings about physics and electricity. (Not bragging here, as there are many other fields and skillsets that I know very little about)
Typically terms like volts, amps, watts, power, energy are interchanged with casual abandon. Sometimes I like to toss out this "theory": Electrical circuits take two wires, a source and a return path. For example, the power company gives your house power on one wire, and simultaneously takes it back on the other wire. The current ends back with them, yet they still send you a bill. No new electricity has been created in years, as they just recyle it to other customers. A lot of folks don't get that I'm being facetious, and become upset at such a "revelation".
Great forum here... information, education, humor, entertainment, and comraderie.

Ah and as I read your reply I thought of all the gentlemen that pioneered the way, Tesla, Edison, and many more.
I love to talk about ohms, mohs, henry's, farad's, and LSI Integrated chips and there uses. Fascinating really..........but ya can never STOP learnin.........at least in this field.

Can't generate that much - in one facility - but you darn sure can with more than one facility -- apparently. :shock:
