Answer by Bramble
The main consideration is probably the generator design. To optimise the generator size, weight, cost and efficiency according to the specification and loss evaluation, an appropriate design compromise must be struck between conductor cross section (current) and insulation thickness (voltage). This usually means that for gas turbine plants the voltage lies in the range 10 to 20 kV corresponding to generator unit sizes from around 60 up to 200 MVA. 11 kV could well be a good choice for a unit of around 80 to 100 MVA.

Safe to use a power strip over an extension cord?

Written By: Generator Man - Apr• 13•13

Question by AJ: Safe to use a power strip over an extension cord?
I have recently bought a Hamilton Beach HEPA Air Purifier. The caution warning label says not to plug it to an extension cord. I plugged it on the power strip instead. Is it safe for me to plug it there? I’m very concerned with home safety. And I’m not sure if the company’s definition for extension cord also includes power strips since it is also a type of extension cord to some… Anyone’s help and thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

You should be alright with that one, because I believe they are concerned about power surges through the extension cord? But mose power strips are also surge protected.

I don’t think it would be that unsafe to plug it into an extent ion cord, but if you are going through the trouble to rad all the warnings, its good to be safe then sorry!

Hope I could help!

Oh! A Thought just came to me… I doubt this is why the put the warning there but if you have an extortion cord it would be super easy to trip over inside and thus pulling over your Air Purifier… which would be bad. so tuck away the cord if you end up with the extension cord!

Best of Luck!
