Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 24th October, 2015)
A scrap man would love this photo.
Very good Colin, the Kestrel looks as if it is posing!
That's a pathetic comment Mick.
Fabulous shot of the Kestral Colin.
Nice Kestral shot, Colin.
Mick if the scrap man what's to risk his life with 25000 Kilovolts, it's up to him. But there's only going to be one winner, and it won't be him.
Just proves within a mass of steel and concrete there is wildlife.
Well spotted Colin. Sorry Mick, don't understand you comment at all.
The kestrel looks very settled.25000 KV Garry,are you sure
Pw 25000 KVA would make sense in a power transformer.
Yes I'm sure Pw, the bird is very safe there anyway it's pirched on the gantry post. Birds can land on power cables because they do not complete a path to the ground, they are infact, in parallel circuit with the power line. In other words, they don't come in contact with ground/earth.
Garry.25000 KILOVOLTS is 25000000 VOLTS (25MEGAVOLTS) .Not much would be safe near that,but let's leave Colins good photo alone.
It's 25Kv or 25,000v.
Pw 25kv (kilovolts) is 25000v.
Hugh 25kv and 25000 is the same.
25kv alternating current is commonly used in railway electrification systems as standard here in the UK.
We know that 25Kv is 25000v, but you said 25000Kv in your original post.
I don't think you did Hugh, but you know now.
Garry, What you think is of no interest to me. However, as my work involves the installation of high voltage ship propulsion systems and associated switchgear (6.6Kv, 11.Kv etc) I can assure you that I am well aware of the relationship between volts and kilovolts.
6.6kv, 11.kv still not as powerful as the railways. It's only a trickle Towards 25kv.
