I’m an electrician in South Africa working for our national power supplier as a senior controller in one of our network control centres for the past 12 years. Before this I worked on the power lines and transmission and distribution substations, 11KV to 765KV. Before that I did my apprenticeship, qualified and worked in one of Anglo American’s mines here in SA. I’m very excited and look forward to talk to other electricians from all over the world. I know every country has its own way of doing things and its own terminology for certain equipment, tools and techniques therefore I’m very keen to learn how you do things in your country, especially the controllers if there are some of you on this forum. Thanks for having me here, I’m grateful.

Hello Control

I am from Nepal. I also specialized in power lines and transmission along with distribution systems. I am trying to change my career to residential electric in the u.s.

Guys and girls

Sounds like you are pretty educated. Welcome to the forum. Don't get upset if one of our PROFESSIONALS asks you how to put a switch on an exhaust fan. We do have a guy who has worked in High Voltages a lot though... Zog, you're on.

Thanks for all the welcomes guys . . . and BCSparkyGirl. I was wondering if there really were any girls on this forum:001_huh: :thumbsup:.
Yea, Bada. When you only work on HV it's very straight forward and all safety, safety, safety. But when you go over to residential electricity or like we call it "house wiring", it gets a bit more technical, so . . good luck with that :thumbsup:.
