Power Grid Vulnerability

Post by spacemaverick on Thu Feb 06, 2014 11:31 am

We have found out that our power stations (nuclear type) are vulnerable through bad maintenance practices, bad designs like the BWR Mark 1, building in earthquake areas / fault lines / next to the ocean / sea / rivers....oil fired and coal fired plants that are also vulnerable.

How about the stations away from the power plants that step down the voltage? The smaller areas out away from the main power plants? Also, the exposed poles with electrical lines up in the air exposed to high winds from various sources like hurricanes and the like. Just look at the following story from a year ago where one person (maybe) or a few people used a rifle to take out a station run by PG & E.

Chances are you didn’t hear about it when it happened or the investigation that followed. Last April just outside of San Jose, California the grid system came under direct attack.

Investigators have yet to identify any suspects, but the attack seems to have been well planned. First, someone accessed an underground vault housing fiber optic telephone cables and cut off communications to a large PG&E Substation.

Then, for 19 minutes, someone opened fire from long-range.

The sniper apparently utilized 7.62x39mm rounds, such as those used in an AK-47, to target the oil-driven cooling systems for 17 large transformers. The shell casings found at the scene had been wiped clean of fingerprints. According to Newsmax none of the transformers exploded, but the damage was significant enough for PG&E to force their electricity feeds to reroute through another station in an effort to prevent a widespread blackout.

What can really be done to protect the electrical grid? We have progressed far ahead with technology but our electrical grid is still back in the dark ages. I don't have the answer. Do people really care? I don't think they even think about it until the power goes out. What do you think?

Welcome to EMP weaponry (This can affect the power grid also)

Boeing has successfully tested a missile capable of destroying all electronics in an area without destroying buildings or directly killing people.

And you know if we have it, someone else does also. Where would that leave our power grid?
