[quote:Fireengineer:MV8yMDYxODQ4XzM0Njg3Nzk3X0Y2Nzk0NUJF] By intruducing a source of power within a building, you have in effect by-passed all of the protection devices like fuses and trips. So, if something were to go wrong one would expect a fuse or trip to activate and 'safe' the circuit, but if the source of the power is within the circuit itself the trip would not have any effect and the fault would be fed more and more power until the source is overloaded or the fault is removed. The 'fault' may be someone getting a shock or a faulty appliance that may catch fire. [/quote]

A Dundee man has been accused of "recklessly producing household electricity" with a bizarre home-made transformer.
Charles McKenzie is alleged to have rigged up a "dangerous transformer assembly" at his flat in Dundee's Dudhope Court to generate power.
Mr McKenzie, 55, was not at Dundee Sheriff Court to face the charge of culpable and reckless conduct.
Sheriff George Way continued the case without plea for three weeks.
The charge alleges Mr McKenzie "culpably and recklessly" produced electricity "with total disregard for the safety of yourself and others".
