There were no restrictions on electricity consumption in any region, outages were due to bad weather, technical reasons and hostilities
Power generation and consumption
Yesterday, the power system experienced a slight shortage of electricity due to increased consumption, which amounted to less than one per cent of the daily electricity consumption.
In order to balance the system, the transmission system operator attracted emergency imports of electricity from Romania and Poland totalling 3,200 MWh, which is one of the tools to cover the increase in consumption.
Today, additional generation capacity has been put into operation to meet the needs of consumers. These include a 100 MW unit in one of the cogeneration plants, a 180 MW unit in a thermal power plant and a hydroelectric unit that can supply more than 300 MW of electricity to the system at maximum capacity.
As of 11:00, there was no deficit in the power system.
Potential emergency imports, which may be needed to cover evening peak consumption, will not exceed 1% of daily consumption and are a standard tool used in such situations.
At the same time, 2 TPP units were shut down yesterday for short-term repairs. The transmission system operator also limited the generation of one of the wind farms.
There are no restrictions on electricity consumption in any of the regions.
The situation is under control. The power system is balanced.
