Power cuts deliberate and a trial run to see how we react when the big CME hits

Recommended Posts

Evidence it was deliberate?

 

You probably need to contact some National Grid linesmen. When you're in the business you can easily tell what causes things to go wrong. Hundreds of linesmen would need to be aware of the 'drill'.

I lived through the last power cuts where candles were at a premium, however, not all sources of power were off line, the GPO telephone lines still had their 50 volts supply which I used to light a small bank of torch bulbs to light my bedroom.

its obvious it was...they cant even agree on the cause...one even says it was due to a north sea wind farm malfunction

lets face it if the power cuts were genuine you can say goodbye to the electric car revolution...dead in the water..if they cant cope now,no chance chance with say 5million cars being charged through the grid...i wont be selling my old trannie in a hurry..lol!

Just some observations about the UK power cuts yesterday;

 

1: Zero commentary from The National Grid. No official explanation. No press release (as of yet). The National Grid is covering up something.

 

2: The London media scum were embarrassing this morning trying to explain it away. It was pathetic watching the BBC and Sky "News" trying to explain it away. No info. No facts. No feet on the ground. Just vague talking points and some random bloke with no qualifications trying to reassure its finite audience.

 

3: How does the country come to a halt when supposedly two national grid generators go offline?! It doesnt ring true. They are lying through their teeth. How is it the case Newcastle airport was in lockdown? How did Bradford city lose its power too? How did the London underground lose its power?! There is no way that they could all be affected by the same two generators.

 

4: If it was a cyber attack then The National Grid should inform the public. By doing so the hacker community might be able to track where the hack/attack came from. Also if it was an attack there would be a message/code/cypher/pattern in the attack (this would determine motive/reason). By covering up the attack The National Grid is being selfish and short sighted.

 

 

Yesterday was an omen of many things to come.

 

(Edit; Here's a link to a reddit comment thread some random good info in there;

Reposting from good ol' Usenet - It seems that it was actually one Gas power station and 2 of the big North Sea Wind farms, going offline at the same time:

Around 4pm GMT

Near simultaneous (3 min) loss of generation in this order

664MW Little Barford (CCGT) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Barford_Power_Station

406MW Hornsea 2 (Wind) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornsea_Wind_Farm#Hornsea_Project_2

406MW Hornsea 1 (Wind) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornsea_Wind_Farm#Hornsea_Project_1

48.8Hz lowest frequency

About 100MW less total loss of generation than Longannet Sizewell in 2008 Very similar lowest frequency But possible lightning strikes to complicate things

The level of loss of generation and its timing is all within planning guidelines.

At the time the loss of load probability was zero, the derated margin was circa 10GW

Someone better have a very good explanation.

My hunch? The lack of low frequency response due to solar, wind and loss of conventional system inertia was predicted for around 2022, it may have arrived three years early.
