Watches in Europe in a six-minute delay: the cause is a dispute between Serbia and Kosovo
The clocks in Europe are in the six-minute delay, because of a consumption crash electricity between Serbia and Kosovo. The latest news reveal that this has led to consequences all over the european continent. It is a serious enough problem, started in the middle of last January. The producers ask that it should be resolved as soon as possible, just to avoid other inconveniences. To explain the situation, we think the association ENTSO-E, which collects the electricity producers european and monitors the activities.
A six-minute delay in the watches in Europe. This problem was caused by a consumption crash electricity between Serbia and Kosovo. Everything started in the middle of last January. The consumption is anomalous in regard to the block Serbia-Macedonia-Montenegro. According to the analyses conducted by the association ENTSO-E of interest, in particular, Serbia and Kosovo. The european electricity grid has lost 113 GWh, because the Kosovo has consumed more than it should. In view of the territorial disputes, Serbia has not ensured the proper supply of energy to Kosovo, in order to balance the consumption. For this reason, it is born of an imbalance of the european network. Remember that energy suppliers work together to keep the country connected. In this way, can be exchanges.
At the same time, you need to know that you have to maintain a stable frequency over a large network. When the consumption is lower than the amount of energy produced, the frequency will be increased. While if the consumption is higher, the frequency decreases. The generators are already set up with control systems that automatically control their work. In the case where a part of the network is not able to remain constant when you vary the power consumption, the network goes to overreach with a frequency away from 50 Hz as a standard. At this point, we point out that the consequences are different.
The problems you notice, especially in wall clocks and watches connected to a power outlet. Many models do not have a system that helps them to adjust to automatic, but using simply the frequency of the electricity network. And lo and behold, the clocks begin to calculate the errors over time. Therefore, the marked time will be wrong. Instead, newer models of the mark more precisely the time, having a radio receiver to adjust. Until you resolve the problem between Serbia and Kosovo, the clocks continue to mark the wrong time. In the last few days have accumulated well over 6 minutes of delay. According to what reveals to ENTSO-E by this weekend it should be solved the problem.
