Ianman: China White Tea: Ianman: You CAN increase the amps if you lower the volts. 240 volts at 200amps is 48000watts, so 48000 watts divided by 48000amps means 1volt on the output.

It doesn't work like that.
Reducing the voltage reduces current which reduces power.
Order of operations, you suck at it...

I'm not sure if you're trolling, or if you're just ignorant to the point that you're completely oblivious to how much you don't know.

So does your garden hose spray farther when you turn down the water pressure?
Idiot!


Um, voltage would be like water pressure. Current would be like the rate of flow. Increase the size of your pipe and you can have a high rate of flow without high pressure. You can move the same amount of water through a larger pipe with a decrease in water pressure as you can with a smaller pipe at higher pressure. Same goes for conductors with very low resistance.

Because beer.

Sorry, I am man enough to say I was wrong.

I was not taking his transformer into account!

/Hope I didn't break the internet.
// Know Ohm's law.
///Was thinking there was no way a 240v 100-200A svc could deliver that much power.
4th/ going home, Ian is drunk...

Remove the transformer, and I did make sense...

He said lower voltage, not lower voltage and lower resistance.
So much imaginary shiat going on.

A direct application of Ohm's law really has no place here. He didn't say "lower resistance" because it isn't really important in a transformer. The voltage isn't being reduced by slapping a resistor series with a voltage source, it's being reduced by converting it into amperage.

Very true. I was just correcting him on his water analogy.

V squared/ ohms = Wattage.

Reduce the voltage, reduce the power.

What is being reduced by converting what into voltage?

Seriously, I think you are confusing others quotes with mine.

Quote mine, not others...

other than being excessively dangerous, what the Fuchs was the point of that?

Misleading title is misleading. I'm pretty sure that's 1.21 gigawatts.

You keep touting "Ohm's Law". While you're applying the law correctly you seem to be missing the bigger point. There's talk of resistance but you fail to mention impedance. This is not a DC circuit. It's a 60 Hertz waveform that is susceptible to the storage and release of magnetic energy without accomplishing any work. The water analogies thus far rest upon the idea of an infinite bus from which there is a voltage source that is not dependent on fluctuating loads. This is what most people are familiar with. This is what takes place in a residence.

My guess is that you're a pre-engineering student, a hobbyist, or a know-nothing civil engineer. Concede the water analogy and find another justification. I assure you there's one out there.

That said here's what 50 kA really looks like Link

Find another justification for what?

I only used the water analogy once...
