What masks do for a living? Take one outside. See your breath? The condensation contains virus. Even from a healthy person and not Covid 19 Put on the mask. See the limitation of condensation distance? Breathe, talk, yell, scream. Do you see the difference in distance between the two? Remember the CDC recommendation for distancing? Why is this even a subject of argument? Amplitude x Time of Exposure Same physics for all common viruses illnesses

I do wonder if Federal Funding cuts have ended large scale messenger RNA projects researching the feasibility of controlling other endemic or pandemic viral events? Even limiting the effects of Nornovirus would be worth examining. But news organizations seem to have lost interest in mRNA oriented reporting. A shame.

Surplus Electronics stores sometimes have them. I bought 120 units pallet of them in Rohnert Park California 43 years ago. They were military USAF unmarked 460 watt multitap. -30 20 10 0 + 10 20 30 for $440 Full 50db isolation. You may have to drive to a big city or to near a USA USMC or USAF base. Mew ones as you know are expensive.

RE: EMS Don, The following can be of great assistance in learning the difference between auto and isolation transformers. Down here, its absurd to consider an auto disconnect circuit protector as it means total electrical disconnection more than half the time in rural areas. Direct distribution lightning protection is the most challenging circuits to create. It means separating incoming power from the load by at least 8 inches of air while offering enticing Corona corona discharge path(s). I know of no lower voltage device that will not burn to a cinder if incoming voltage takes a direct strike. Does any RV insurance company offer underwriting protection against damage to RV accessories?

Just as a fast note Autoformers are directly connected across both transformers at one end. Significance? Zero reduction of transient voltage surges or spikes. I didn't write the rules I just follow them.

The governor of California suspended the state of emergency for the virus. The significance of which I am not aware.

The only true protector is a saturated harmonic voltage transformer (volts control via hertz) followed by a true isolation transformer. Incredibly expensive Wastes power, develops heat I had to design and make my own lightning protection circuit. Did it work? The structure had been isolated with an eight inch knife switch. Lightning struck the 127 volt neighborhood feeder circuit then backfed and blew the 35 KW wye wound transformer. The strike melted the pair of 8 gauge wires feeding the house. It melted 2 ¼" spaced copper plates and destroyed a 6 AWG shunt wire to earth ground. Utilities protect transmission lines with devices called "reclosers". They cause a few seconds blackout after a line strike, then reclose. I've made dozens of circuit protection devices for friends using 20mm MOV devices plus 5 amp avalanche rectifiers. Each parallel six times line to neutral to earth ground. All protected with rice grain fuses. It's not inexpensive. For harmonic voltage control SOLA brand has been around a long time.

RE: Kitchen stove fan "flap".

Your local heating and HVAC shop? Have one made out of aluminum?

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

Final post in this quagmire. If government were the least interested in chopping quadrillions in thermal transmissions they would offer incentives in developing vacuum panel insulation development with emphasis on durability. A one inch vacuum panel has the thermal qualities of many inches of fiberglass or closed cell foam. Can you imagine a motor vehicle sitting in 40°C sunlight and gaining 3° C interior heat? Yes the have AU coated (laminated) glass that along with vacuum panel insulation (wrecking yard recoverable) that can do all this with ease. 2,500 sq ft homes in August Phoenix or January Minneapolis with 200 kWh energy expenditures. The above is low priority subject to tax exemptions so it is nauseatingly ignored. This leaves me disinterested to an almost unimaginative degree.

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

The mask quandary Want to know what masks do for a living? Take one outside on a cold day. Breathe. See your breath? It contains virus Now fit an N95 mask It severely inhibits breath exhalation travel distance. The evidence is irrefutable. Think three or four times before arguing against it. Speak, shout, scream and sing both when wearing and shedding a mask. Really look at breath concentration,shape, form, and dimensions. Now imagine packing people together in a store, a restaurant, a theater, an airplane. The shape, size and intensity of that breath cloud does not change. Like radiation, intensity and duration of exposure determines the level of hazard. I urge the use of sense when analysis is being performed. Ignore political rhetoric. Go by the numbers. In the entire contents of this thread I've yet to encounter hard numbers regarding monthly kWh totals for arguing energy grid design, or capacity, where are the holy grail WORST CASE grid and intertie numbers? It isn't merely automobiles that are being hard mandated for energy conversion.

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

I find little comfort that the natural order always finds means to correct overpopulation. Have any readers studied Glaciation and TO oscillation in interglacial periods. I suggest doing so.

RE: Cure for depresion

I was clinically diagnosed with dangerously low red blood cell count. Transfusion time! I felt like **** To maintain a reasonable labs I have to take B supplements, Iron, beans, or meat Meat occasionally. I wish I didn't have to do all that But yes my mood was definitely in the dumpster along with utter exhaustion. Your mileage may vary. But I do blame the Chemo.

Thanks to everyone who tried to reply to my question about winter and summer accessory added kWh load :)

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

I wanna know opinions about how extreme hot weather max air conditioning affects travel limits and if the A/C is as good as it is in a luxury gasoline burner. Forget politics please...

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

With an electric bill of 160 kWh and last petroleum fill up July 2022 I could be sanctimonious but I won't. Because its an unrealistic lifestyle. What I am going to state is this: some of you younger folks are going to live long enough to remember the Good Old Days: When electricity was an unbelievably cheap dollar per kWh. Shoot with the way inflation is going that may be five dollars an hour. All my life I've prayed for the discovery of superconduction and fusion powered boilers. It looks like it'll remain a dream as I rest in the shade of a parota tree

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

I cant afford one There are no recharging stations here And no arguments, except maybe futból Life is too short to be miserable.

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

They sent a letter (western states interti) to Pateco my defunct company regarding bid interest for upgrades to 4x capacity) including direct current transmission. Of course I declined and asked to be removed from the list of service engineering vendors. The line(s) connect Canada through C.O.W. to an upgraded 2 GW geothermal generator and PV field in Mexicali Baja California Mexico. If you're a Californiano prepare yourself for a major energy surtax. The figure of eighty to two hundred billion dollars is being tossed around for total infrastructure financing. The proposed routing is through California's Central Valley primarily because of seismic vulnerability. It isn't just a matter of EV demand but total and complete elimination of energy consumption elimination of other than electricity. Including structures and manufacturing.

RE: Can the grid keep up with EV use?

Depends. California mandates every motor vehicle to become EV and all new homes to not have any other source of energy than electrical. They are looking at a grid equal to the totals output capacity of several Grand Coulee Dams generation. Interties, transmission, distribution capacity would have to increase 4-700%. Are you ready to see four to seven times more electrical towers? Nuclear plants? What's the daily KW needs of a 70,000 pound cargo truck in mountainous terrain?

RE: Are the new WFCO's as bad as the old ones?

I think of WHIFFIES in the same light as I do ten-for-a-dollar junk store disposible razors. Yeah. That laughable.
