What would cause a transformer to burn like this? :blink:
I hope you had power in all that :laughing:Funny. That's not far from my place, and I remember when it happened.
Could be.I do not know, that fire may have started by a lightning strike or something else but once it gets going that stuff is going to burn.
Big John will know, hopefully he checks in.
I'm about 10 minutes away but I pass by substation often enough. My friend and coworker lives just down the road from there and was without power for awhile after it went up.T
I hope you had power in all that :laughing:
You would happen to know the voltages involved?
That should read as "suspended water" really....what happens is, over time, the oil in ANY liquid-filled transformer absorbs water, mainly from condensation but sometimes from leaking bushings or other tank parts.It's often a result of age, degradation to the insulation or standing water, that causes a turn to turn fault. Maybe it could be caused by single phasing of underground lines, or sometimes a fault that heats the oil before over current protection kicks in (60 milliseconds). It would scare the crap out of me though.
Sorry phone post :laughing:Whaaaaaa?
Speaka da hinglish?
