Power generation and consumption
Yesterday afternoon, there was a surplus of electricity in the Ukrainian power system. The surplus was transferred to the power system of Poland (from 11:00 to 15:00) with a total supply of 1,600 MWh.
Two TPP units and one CHPP unit were out of service for short-term repairs, while a unit and a block of thermal power plants were connected to the grid after the emergency work was completed. There are 6 thermal generation units in reserve that will be used if necessary.
Consequences of shelling
An explosion occurred at a Ukrenergo substation in Dnipropetrovsk region as a result of an attack by enemy drones, and the wreckage of a UAV was found on site. After a repeated attack, a fire broke out at the station and part of the equipment was partially disabled. As of the morning, the fire was contained.
Also, as a result of the night shelling in Dnipropetrovsk region, some TPP equipment was partially de-energised. The consequences of the attack are being assessed. The power supply was cut off.
Power engineers are working to restore power supply. However, given that this is the third time the enemy has attacked power facilities in Dnipropetrovsk region over the past week, power companies in Kryvyi Rih have to use emergency power outage schedules to stabilise the situation and carry out repairs.
Overnight, control equipment malfunctioned at a 220 kV substation in Mykolaiv region (without any consequences for the substation). The circumstances are being investigated.
As a result of shelling, wires were broken on poles in Chernihiv region, causing blackouts in one settlement, all consumers have now been connected.
State of the grid
For technical reasons, 110 kV lines were disconnected in Odesa region, causing power outages in two settlements. All consumers have now been reconnected.
For the current day, electricity imports are forecasted at 9,979 MWh, and exports to Moldova are also expected at 810 MWh.
