A: As far as we know, Turkey Point is going through the normal procedures for a safe and controlled shutdown. That's what always happens with nuclear plants when they go offline unexpectedly. So the operators there are doing everything they can to helping that plant down safely.

 

B: And any idea at this point as to what caused these power outages, what caused the transmissions to go down?

 

A: The information we have was that there was a short-circuit in a substation in South Florida and the protective systems that are designed to contain the problem to that substation did not work correctly, so the problem spread very rapidly, and that's why it became a widespread outage. But the …

 

B: So what's supposed to happen when something like that goes down?

 

A: Well, what's supposed to happen is the protective equipments are supposed to limit it to that problem. Just like in your home, if you have a short-circuit in your wall, only that circuit breaker should trip and not your whole house go without power. In this case, the circuit breaker apparently didn't work and that's why it spread to a much larger area.

 

B: And we are talking, especially when it comes to Florida power and light between 600, 000 and 800, 000 people affected. And Don was talking a little bit earlier, and it does make sense that even though this may not have worked exactly how it was supposed to, the fact that these power plants did shut down is a good thing.

 

A: Absolutely. That's what they're designed to do. Whether it's a nuclear plant, a coal plant or a gas fired plant they all are supposed to shut down in order to protect themselves, so they are not damaged and that they can be started back up again and continue to supply power.

 

B: So what happens now? Do they go back to the source of the problem, and you have to fix it at that point before you can bring all the other plants online?

 

A: Usually you can bypass the initial cause of the problem and get everybody back online and the companies in Florida, Tampa Electric, Florida Power and Light, and Progress, are all in the processes of doing that now getting their customers back on.

 

B: And Stan, from what you are hearing this was just simply a technical glitch? We spoke with our Homeland Securities correspondent, Jeanne Meserve. She said at this point she has not heard anything dealing with terrorism. So I have to ask you, have you heard anything to that extent on your end?

 

A: No, we have not. All the information that we have is consistent with what Jeanne has. This appears to be a technical problem, no indication whatsoever of any kind of terrorist activity.

 

B: Well, that is good news. And quickly as we wait for this comeback online, we've got a number of different estimates somewhere between 10 hours and then others are saying between two and four. What do you expect?

 

A: It depends where you are talking about in the State of Florida. Areas like Tampa and on the east coast, the central east coast that will be coming back on much more quickly. The areas in southern Florida will take a little bit longer. So it's gonna depend a bit on location.

   Is going to the normal procedures for safe and contronl shut down. That's what always happenened when nuclear plants when they go off line unexpectedly,so the operaters there are doing everything they can to helping that plant down safely.

   And any idea at this point as to what cause these power outges ,what cause these transmission to go down ? The information we have was there was a short circuit in substation in south Florida ,and protecting systerm that are designed to contain the problem in that substation did not work correctly so that problem spread really rapidly and that's why became a wide spread outrage.

    So what's supposed to have when something like that goes down?

    Well,what's supposed to have to peotect the equipment are supposed to limit to that problem ,just like in your home ,and the other short circuit in your wall ,and only that circuit breaker to strip, and not your whole house goes out of power. In this case ,the circuit breaker didn't work and that's why it spread a so much larger area.

    We are talking as speacial thing comes to the Florid power line and between 600 and 800,000 peoplea fected . Adorms talking a little bit earlier, it dose make sense that even though this may not work eaxactly how was supposed to ,the fact is that these power plants did shut down is a good thing .

    Absolutely, what designed to do , whether a nuclear plant ,a coal plant are agaist fire plant. They are all supposed to shut down in order to protect themselves. So there are not damages and they can be stored to back up again and continue to supply power.

    So what happened if they go back to the source of the problem and you have to fix at that point before you can bring all the other plants on line?

    Usually, you can buy pats the initial cause of the problem and get everybody back on line. The company in Florida tempo, all of the are doing that now ,getting their customers back on .

    And , ,what's your hearing this was just a simply a technical lege . We supposed to have on our homeland security bound ,She said this point she is not heard anything dealing with chair reason. So I have to ask you have you heard anything to that sence on your end ?

    No ,we have not ,our information we have systerms 14 has this appears to be a techonical problem, no indication what so ever

    Well.that's a good news. And ,quickly as we wait for this come back on line ,we've got a number different estimated some were between 10 hours ,other just saying to between 2 and 4. What do you expect?

B: And San what you are hearing this was just simply a technical glitch? We spoke with our Homeland Securities correspondent Jeanne Merserve. She said at this point she has not heard anything dealing with terrorism. So I have to ask you, have you heard anything to that extent on your end? A: No, we have not. All the information that we have is consistent with what Jeanne has. This appears to be a technical problem. No indication whatsoever of any kind of terrorist activity. B: Well, that is good news and quickly as we wait for this comeback online. We've got a number of different estimates somewhere between 10 hours and then others are saying between two and four. What do you expect? A: It depends where you are talking about in the State of Florida, areas like Tampa and on the east coast, central east coast that will be turning back on much more quickly. The areas in southern Florida will talk a little bit longer. So it's gonna depend a bit on location.

A: As far as we know, Turkey Point is going through the normal procedures for a safe and controlled shutdown. That's what always happens with nuclear plants when they go offline unexpectedly. So the operators there are doing everything they can to helping that plant down safely.

 

 

B: And any idea at this point as to what have caused these power outages, what caused the transmissions to go down?

 

 

A: The information we have was that there was a short circuit in a substation in South Florida and the protective systems that are designed to contain the problem to that substation did not work correctly, so the problem spread very rapidly, and that's why it became a widespread outage. But the initiative

 

 

B: So what's supposed to happen when something like that goes down?

 

 

A: Well, what's supposed to happen is the protective equipments are supposed to limit it to that problem. Just like in your home, if you have a short circuit in your wall, only that circuit breaker should trip and not your whole house go without power. In this case, the circuit breaker apparently didn't work and that's why it spread to a much larger area.

 

 

B: And we are talking,especially when it comes to a Florida power and light between 600, 000 and 800, 000 people affected. And Don was talking a little bit earlier, and it does make sense that even though this may not have worked exactly how it was supposed to, the fact that these power plants did shut down is a good thing.

 

 

A: Absolutely. That's what they're designed to do. Whether it's a nuclear plant, a coal plant or a gas fired plant they all are supposed to shut down in order to protect themselves. So they are not damaged and they can be started back up again and continue to supply power.

 

 

B: So what happens out there? they go back to the source of the problem, and you have to fix it at that point before you can bring all the other plants online?

 

 

A: Usually you can bypass the initial cause of the problem and get everybody back online and the companies in Florida, Tampa Electric, Florida Power and Light, and Progress, are all /in/ the processes of doing that now getting their customers back on.
