Causes Of Power Failure

Aug. 18, 2021

At present, electricity has become an indispensable part of modern life. Our work, leisure, medical care, economy and livelihood are inseparable from a continuous and stable supply of electricity. As our daily dependence on electronics and computers increases, standby power sources are also increasingly used in company facilities, manufacturing, mining, commerce and even residential buildings. Although power loss in smaller settings may not be life-threatening, it can lead to data loss, missed deadlines, reduced productivity, or lost revenue. In this article, generator manufacturers will introduce you to two major causes of power failures.


1. Natural causes are related to weather.

It is understood that many power failures are caused by natural weather phenomena, such as lightning, rain, snow, ice, wind, and even dust. Although it is more difficult to prevent major power failures from natural disasters such as floods and severe storms, it is relatively easy to protect the power system from water and dust. Water can cause short circuits and power failures. Since damage caused by water in the circuit can be very expensive, it makes sense to ensure that you are well protected. The electrical switchboards, wires and circuits should be protected from water. Humidity and excessive moisture can also cause serious damage. If you live in a place with high humidity, dust can also damage the electrical system, causing short circuits and power failures. If you live in an area exposed to dust or sandstorms, you should pay special attention to the location of the circuit and make sure to prevent dust exposure as much as possible. Sealed circuit boxes can also help protect your critical electrical equipment and help prevent accidental power failures.

Historically, natural disasters have been the root cause of the worst power outages in the world. Hurricanes, floods, storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other severe weather can completely destroy critical power infrastructure, leading to power outages, and people’s lives without power will be greatly affected.


2. Other reasons for power outage.

For animals that come into contact with large birds and other power lines, 11% of power failures in the United States are caused by other reasons, mainly man-made power outages, appearing in the form of construction accidents of vehicles and telephone poles and power lines, maintenance of public facilities, and occasionally caused by human error.


Understanding the possible causes of power failures can better protect power resources and protect people and businesses from the impact of power interruptions.
