TCN gives reason for system collapse, restores power to grid 

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said power has fully restored to the national grid after a partial disturbance at about 15.09Hrs yesterday, 6th July, 2024.

The system disturbance, which brings to  three, the partial grid disturbances, with one total disturbance this year, was suspected to have been triggered by the unexpected tripping of three  units of a power generating station, which suddenly removed 313MW from the grid, causing system instability that led to the loss of bulk supply to a section of the national grid. 

Meanwhile, the System Operator reacted to the sudden drop in generation  which led to a dip in frequency, by islanding a section of the grid which includes the Ibom Power Station through which the company continued to feed Uyo, Aba, Itu, Eket, Calabar e.t.c even when the other section of the grid had no supply.

Also, the operators commenced grid restoration efforts  immediately after the incident. At about 21.57 hrs yesterday, the  entire part of the grid that was affected by todays incident  was successfully restored.
