Bump, need quite a few more cars for outdoors. We have an allowance of 4 cars indoors, and a good spot up front outdoors from what I'm told.

Learned something neat today at work.

When the converter station is finished they're going to build a Faraday cage that connects the two man-doors in each of the 4 valve halls so that you can actually walk into the room to make sure it's not on fire. If you were to walk outside of it you would essentially be struck by lightning and die since it's 500kV and around 2000 amps.

Not too sure if that's due to carona discharge, or being a less resistant path to ground.

The humidity in the room also has to be kept around 15% max IIRC, if it gets any higher the water in the air could conduct electricity and cause a short, which would blow **** up.

Also, apparently if **** goes really south the limit of approach to the thyristors is around 4m (inside that = death), so you'd pretty much have to belly crawl out.

Had to double check with the foreman who told me this because I thought he was ****ing with me.
