A simulated blackout situation and how to respond to such a situation
* What is a blackout?
A blackout is caused by a severe fluctuation in the voltage and frequency in a power grid. Even in a part of the area, if the power usage exceeds the power supply, the voltage and the frequency in the entire grid is significantly degraded. If this stops the system that manages the grid itself, the entire grid grinds to a stop. Lastly, the power generators, which requires electricity to generate electricity, stops and everything goes down into total darkness. This is called a black out.
