Anya Heider and Ricardo Reibsch, both PhD Candidates at the RLS Graduate School represent the RLI at the Long Night of the Sciences at TU Clausthal. Together they will give a lecture entitled “Power outage in Köpenick! How could this happen?”.
At over 30 hours, the February 2019 Köpenick power outage was the longest in Berlin’s post-war history. How could it have happened? The presentation explains how a power grid is structured and what safety measures are in place. What would happen if the power failed throughout Germany and how do you actually restart an energy system? Will it be more difficult or easier with Renewable Energy? And how common are power outages in other countries? Anya and Ricardo will answer all the questions in their presentation.
