Nigeria’s National Grid restored after latest collapse

Boom RadioNG | March 29, 2024

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has announced it has restored the national grid following a system disturbance at 4:28 pm on Thursday, 28th March 2024.

According to a statement by the TCN’s Public Affairs officer, Ndidi Mbah, the full recovery of the grid was achieved by 10:00 pm on Thursday.

She explained that an imbalance in grid stability caused the disturbance, which was worsened by the sudden tripping of Egbin generation turbine 3.

“According to a report from the National Control Centre (NCC) in Osogbo, the system disturbance was triggered by a significant reduction in generation capacity, primarily due to gas constraints. This reduction led to a rapid decline in system frequency. This created a sudden imbalance in the grid.

“The imbalance in grid stability was exacerbated by the sudden tripping of Egbin generation turbine 3, resulting in an additional loss of 167MW load and the subsequent collapse of the grid.

“The grid has, however, been recovered and is stable, and all the generated power is currently transmitted to distribution load centres nationwide”, she said.
