As a power plant comes under higher loading, the output voltage goes down. This is a way to control the flow of power throughout the grid.

If voltage drops to a certain level, power plants shut themselves down. Some version of this probably happened in Florida. Florida is a good illustration of how vulnerable our power grid is to a coordinated attack.

A friendly suggestion to take another look at the ‘Paranoid’ post from a couple of days ago.
