grounding/ wiring up a single bushing piglet.........
Posted by dave on 11/30/2004, 8:54 pm
Hi again ,here is my question,..I have wired up my little 1.5kva pig for a low power test. The trans is sitting on a wooden platform, off the cement floor. The trans. tank is connected to a single copper ground rod outside my window, 'bout 12'15' away , using heavy wire (old welding cable) I then place a volt meter between the tank and the cement floor. When I energize the transformer , with no load, the meter reads Zero, but when I draw an arc to the case, the meter starts reading voltage, maybe 50v-60v for 160v in to the trans. Shouldnt this still be zero, being the case is grounded, or am I missing something here ???? /// I need to figure this out be for a full power run( Im still workin on my current limiter choke) Thankyou,dave
