Uhh, gee, I'd like to be there to see THAT test.

Perhaps a more reasonable value would be a 1500 ohm, 15 kw resistor.

There are some occasionally available military surplus electrical loads that
can handle a 15 kw source.  You might investigate one of these.  I've also
heard stories of people needing a load of this size NOW, and kludging 
something up with a 50-gallon barrel of brine sitting out on a runway.

20 electric ovens in series would probably work better than salt water.

Definitely a time for the standard disclaimer, "Your Mileage May Vary."

Hi all

I would like to load test a 5kv 3 amp power supply, i would like to
construct a 1 ohm load for this test. Is this the righ thing to do?
what do commercial people do when testing such power supplies?
