The situation with unplanned electricity flows improved
Special transformers installed at the German-Czech and German-Polish borders improved the unplanned electricity flows.
Slovakia had to face a so-called unplanned electricity flows for a longer time. These occur as a result of cross-border transactions concluded within the common German-Austrian Trading Zone. The Germans and the Austrians transfer a large part of electricity through neighboring countries during the trade exchange they agree to, since the countries do not have enough power lines built between them. Unplanned electricity flows may, in extreme events, cause so-called blackout. The company Slovenska Elektrizacna Prenosova Sustava (SEPS), which is responsible for the operation of our power grid, said that the situation with unplanned flows had improved for the time being. „By installing special transformers at the German-Czech and German-Polish borders, the situation has improved since the part of unplanned electricity flows from the German grid was diverged back. These transformers limit unplanned flows,“ Norbert Deak, the head of SEPS communication department informed the portal vEnergetike.sk.
