What is the minimum safe distance from a house and an electric transformer 13.8 KV?

The transformer enclosure should isolate the transformer sufficiently from the environment. I believe OSHA specifies 2 feet, 1 inch as the minimum appoach distance to 13.8kV, so I suppose a transformer could be put this close to a building and still be safe. My guess is there are codes in place in your local area that prevent this and specify some greater distance.

"Separation," in terms of aircraft, is the minimum distance, both laterally and vertically, permitted in order to be considered "safe."

If a flight is maneuvered for "separation," it is simply being turned in a direction that puts more distance between it and other aircraft.
