I am surprised that nobody has shown one of these. This is a 230 KV substation in the vicinity of the power tower photos I posted. That's 230,000 volts. You can see one of the towers in the background at the right side.

Just for the record and for the information of one of our members, although I have posted a lot of archive shots, the three photos I posted today were shot less than two hours prior to posting.

Me too, Cal. However, I could shoot substations myself, but I failed to do so, even if I did sleep the night on a campsite close to an impressive one for the the last four nights. But...

Even if it was from days gone by, I'd have loved to see a picture of the compact and impressive switchgear and transformers on a nuclear sub or aircraft carrier.
But I expect you know where I'd end up if you published one, as I'm a foreigner.

I'm an electrochemist myself, but my Dad was a 'heavy' electrical engineering lecturer, who delighted in showing off his machine lab, including mercury arc rectifier (where can we find one of them to photograph)to a small boy like me, aged 7 or so.

Here's a tiny contribution from my weekend, when I was hoping to get back in time last night. I'd entitle it "Who needs a mains hookup?", if I hadn't been too late...
