    This would not be like a gasoline fire, the damage would be done in less than a millisecond.
    That's the point I'm making. Current USA code for mitigating arc flash dangers is a maximum of 125 KVA. Your numbers put it at 449.76 KVA. Over three times the legal limit, without wearing more serious protective attire.

    It's more like a stick or two of dynamite, as the damage continues for a few seconds.

    Look up how many joules of energy a stick of dynamite has some time. It's roughly a megajoule.

    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.
