Very Large Electric Motors
Hi All, day 2 with my PM. Very glad to find this site. I work in a refinery and besides the many hazards for anyone working there, I have concerns about being around some of the large electric motors used to drive some of our pumps. Some are as large as a small car and are upwards of 1200 - 5000hp. I also have concerns about entering what is called an MCC room. Mechanical Control Center. This is where all of the electrical breakers for plant equipment are. All different voltages up to 2300kva. It's early here and I'm waiting to contact St Jude Med later today but, does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? I read on the fabulous internet that I can get as close as, No Problem to 25 feet.
