High voltage transformer?

Started by Robert Baer September 1, 2014
   Someone said they saw a large high voltage transformer out of its oil 
bath.
   Two or three fat "wire" turns on primary and 8-10 not as fat "wire" 
turns on secondary.
   Translation is *thousands* of volts per turn, and nano-ohms impedance.
   Two impossible things together used to help power a city?

   Huh??

Not something I have any knowledge of, but googling 'power grid transformer cutaway' in images suggests that someone was mistaken. I wouldn't fancy hand-winding these. Cheers -- Syd
