In India, Power system for planning and operational purposes is divided into five regional grids. The synchronously connected NEW Grid comprising of the Northern, Western, Eastern, Southern and North-Eastern Grids. The All India demand met is of the order of 110,000 MW currently. There have been major grid disturbances on the 30th and the 31st July 2012 which have affected large parts of the Indian Electricity Grids. Due to high load and failure of monsoon, Northern Region was drawing a large quantum of power from neighboring Western and Eastern Grids whereas due to rains in Western Region demand was less and it was under drawing. This situation led to a much skewed load generation balance among the regions. A large quantum of power was flowing from the Western Grid to the Northern Grid directly as well as through the Eastern Grid and the system was under stress. Even if a lot of data was available, the operators at different control centers did not take the proper actions in time to prevent the blackouts. This depends partly on the reorganization of the control centers after the deregulation and partly on the lack of reliable decision support systems when the system is close to in
With It or in It tells a captivating and unique story of the 1991 Persian Gulf War as seen from the loader´s hatch of an M1A1 tank. Using humor and frank candor, author Bacil Donovan Warren shares his personal experience, as well as that of his fellow tankers, as part of the US Army´s 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment (the ´´Brave Rifles´´) in Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Warren recounts the initial shock of hearing about Iraq´s invasion of Kuwait and his regiment´s preparation for deployment during Operation Desert Shield. He describes the stress and sometimes mind-numbing boredom of being deployed deep in the desert of Saudi Arabia, constantly preparing for a possible Iraqi invasion. He recalls the terrifying experience of the start of the air war of Operation Desert Storm and the workman-like action during combat against Iraq´s Republican Guard forces during Operation Desert Sabre. With It or in It brings clarity and focus to their unceasing efforts to bring the conflict to a swift and decisive end. Finally, Warren describes the triumphant return of the Brave Rifles to Ft. Bliss, Texas, and the waiting arms of their families and loved ones. Warren´s fellow tankers have called With It or in It ´´honest and moving´´ (R. Bell) and ´´almost identical to the experiences I had myself´´ (W. Compton). The commanding officer of the author´s Troop during Desert Shield and Desert Storm remarks that With It or in It ´´brilliantly captures what is the rarely described gritty and demanding life of an armor crewman´´ (R. Schultheis). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124131/bk_acx0_124131_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
