Electric Power

During daily demonstrations, visitors experience experiments with alternating voltage up to 300,000 volts (arcing, etc.) and with pulse-like voltages that simulate lightning strikes and reach their maximum value of 800,000 volts in two millionths of a second. The high-voltage demonstration has been taking place since 1953. Here you can see the Faraday cage.
