# Are there any DC (Telecomm) Power Engineers here?

 As no one has volunteered to be a DC Telecom engineer yet, I’ll add something. I have a lot of power DC experience; DC motors and drives (up to several MW), UPS installations (DC side) for data centres, power station / substation DC systems and high voltage DC for Precipitators. While missing the ‘Telecom’ bit, I can add a little to the ‘Power’ side. answered 9/26/2011 Steven McFadyen 246
