Massive blackouts on the way
by Brian Johnston
Before anyone get into the wind turbine and PV solar debate they ought to know how electricity is generated and why.
Our homes and industries require 50Hz energy. The generators have to produce to within 0.1% an exact 50Hz – sinusoidal sine wave form. Refer to jug label. 230V 50Hz.
This means a generator must rotate at a fixed speed as required by law.
At high peak periods when the work force rises for work and switch all their jugs and toasters on there is a huge demand for electricity which has the effect of slowing a generator. Steps are taken to maintain speed ie more water or steam pressure.
Subsequent generators on a grid must produce the same 50hz…
