Electrical and Computer Engineering of Athens, Greece, has authored an in-depth analysis of an electrical accident that occurred when an electrician was performing work on a medium voltage transformer of the Public Power Corporation (PPC). This could be a good learning tool for accident investigations and understanding of electrical incidents.
► Electrician tried to change the single pole fuse of an outdoor transformer on a pylon. ► The insulator of the phase broke resulting in the release of the power distribution wire. ► The technician came into contact with the loose wire and suffered an electric shock. ► The technician did not follow basic safety rules and closed the switch with an unorthodox method. ► Technical and organizational proposals are made to reduce future accidents.
