Jul 30, 2018 Politics Comments Off on Coal-powered generator at power plant malfunctions; power supply safe
Taipei, The coal-powered No. 1 generator at the Dalin power plant in Kaohsiung developed a mechanical failure on Saturday, but with the help of solar energy, no power supply shortage occurred, the state-owned Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) said Monday.
With the prevailing sunny weather in Taiwan, some 1.08 megawatts of power had been generated by the solar sector as of 11:30 a.m. Monday, contributing 3.07 percent to the total power capacity and helping to maintain the power reserve capacity at over 6 percent, Taipower data showed.
Taipower spokesman Hsu Tsao-hua (???) said an inspection of the 0.8 megawatt generator was scheduled for Monday after it cooled down but he could not estimate when it would resume operations.
According to Taipower data valid as of 1:30 p.m. Monday, electricity consumption was 36.026 megawatts and the power reserve margin was 6.29 percent, flashing a yellow light that indicated power reserves of between 6 percent and 10 percent.
Although high temperatures were forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, electricity consumption was not expected to exceed 36.5 megawatts at peak hours and the yellow warning light was likely to continue as Taiwan's maximum power supply capacity remained at 38.77 megawatts, Taipower said.
