The Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope

Power Audit-2009

During the 2008 summer shutdown the VATT manager coordinated a power audit for the observatory site. This audit was ordered to determine phase balancing of the Observatory electrical power distribution system and proper grounding of the VATT building ground grid to the microwave communications tower. A few electrical code violations were identified as well as excessive UPS ground currents; Franz and Gray corrected all code violations and rectified all UPS ground problems over the course of this year.
