A new type of #power analyzer can spot vulnerabilities in the #powergrid & prevents blackouts:

Siemens experts estimate that blackouts cause approximately €150 billion in damage worldwide every year when production or IT is down. In Germany, downtimes are very short, an average of only approximately twelve minutes per year. But conditions are changing, due to the high proportion of renewable energy in the grid. In the past, the supply quality – that is, the constant voltage quality, availability and quality of service – was established by the equilibrium between power generation and consumption. But as the amount of energy produced from renewable sources increases, significant voltage fluctuations and uneven availability may arise. Modern technology also impairs grid quality. Devices that consume highly variable amounts of energy produce harmonics and thus interfere with sensitive electronics. An example of such a nonlinear consumer is a frequency-controlled drive, ...
