Funny: You would thing after the "events on Carnival Dream" this proves this IS NOT the way to test systems. To me, you guys are on shaky ground to say thats just how its done. Maybe, just maybe, they have to develop a better plan????
Funnier: About 2 years ago, I was involved in an event in a field where the generator was "tested". The operator told us to connect stuff to it in order to have a "load". Well, the bloody thing promptly blew out everything connected to it, and there was subsequently no event. Almost 10k$ in damage was caused (needless to say its still in litigation, because the idiot would not "step up")
There HAS to be a better way to test this stuff.
