There have been occasions when people referred to 'other forums'... whatever that means??? :eek:

However we have now progressed to the point where we can refer to.... 'that other post!'] :)

I'm getting too lazy to scroll though numerous pages to get to 100+ post..

also the thread had drifted slightly so I thought I would start a new one!

Hey Nicky...

are you out there m8?

I just finished my veg' peeling duties that welshy put me on!

finally got a bit of free time..

so pull up a chair..

grab a coffee.. or a beer.. whatever your preference?

Just to continue 'one aspect' of the posts on "that other thread"...

no number crunching. just definitions!

(perhaps KME or some of the others may drop by later as well? you never know?) ?:|

On one of your calc' bits you said regarding Touch voltage that..

"the 161.48 volts is not the touch voltage. The touch voltage is the voltage from the fault to the met. When the met is at 161volts this means that all other bonded metalwork is also at 161volts to make the faraday cage.

The touch voltage in this case will be just the voltage created along the ccts cpc wire

Yeah steps; you NEED your beauty sleep.

SL - I`se here massa!

I would have to concur with your understanding of "touch voltage". That would also be my POV.

I apologise in advance - I`m not actually hi-jacking here; we`ve left the other one dead (I hope!)

But if I may digress a moment?

r.e. my comment about the 300KV grid supply.

Why is the national grid transporting electricity at such a voltage?

Because the conductors have a finite impedance. At, say 415V, with a presumed impedance of 0.1 ohm per kilometre, a massive amount of current would be generated within the cables; to be dissipated as heat.

As the impedance is a constant; the voltage is increased in order to lower the current; thereby minimising the losses in the supply cable.QED

Now, if we can return (sorry mr. Special) to "touch voltage".

p.s. Admin:

Don`t strain yourself - ask the missus for help with the longer words....... like "Peter" for instance. :^O

I would be interested in any other POV`s; on this matter; as I`m sure would we all.
