    Hey all you guys!

    Looks like there's an Islandwide CEB cut from evening.
    I am using my iPad to communicate but it will last only another 4 hours with the remaining battery power.

    What is the real problem?
    Is it a strike or a break down of the Norechelli PP?
    Is it a protest against the Indian MOU?

    Anyone wiser?

    Total Blackout or Lunatic Eclipse? Empty Third islandwide power failure hits Sri Lanka in 6 months

    Post by කිත්සිරි ද සිල්වා Sun Mar 13, 2016 8:07 pm

    A country-wide power failure was reported in Sri Lanka on Sunday, the third to hit the island within six months.

    Anura Wijepala, chairman of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), told Xinhua that the exact reason of Sunday's power failure could not be identified and engineers were working to restore the power.

    "At the moment we do not know what is wrong. Our engineers are working on it," Wijepala said, minutes after the electricity failure.

    Sunday's power failure is the third to be reported since the new government was sworn to power in a parliamentary election in August last year.

    The first power failure was reported in September due to a technical fault at the CEB, followed by another on Feb. 25.

    Power and Energy Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said last month's power cut was due to a lightning jolt to hit one of the main electricity lines in the capital.

    Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe called for an immediate probe into the power failures and appointed two special committees to submit their reports.

    CEB's GM and CTO should first resign (unless it's a sabotage like thing).

    After that let the next levels to the top of hierarchy resign.

    We have faced power-outages and in none of these occasions anyone resigned. If you see the following chart we can see how much Power Failures effect to economy and and in return to CSE.

    Total Blackout or Lunatic Eclipse? Chart12


    Those days there was no trend of any one resigning. Karu Jayasuriya was nick named Karuwala Jayasuriya ..Other than that people have no choice..

    Once again we elected the same people who should have resigned long ago..

    Today our rulers are a collection of failures.

    1. CBK... Had enough time and as clearly shown in above chart, dragged the economy down along with CSE

    2. Karu Jayasuriya...Nick named Karuwala Jayasuriya for his failures...

    And the list continues...

    In 2002 the long power cuts on a daily basis happened throughout the last stages of the CBK Govt and it was Karu Jayasooriya who came up with the 180 day program after UNP came to power. The power cuts also contributed to the social unrest and toppling of then Govt.

    Hope no one has amnesia.

    One needs not to come on the road with a placard always to let others know that the way things are run is not acceptable.
    Social Media is a good tool than create a traffic jam at a busy junction.
    Let's create awareness and a culture of accountability from now one. Very Happy
    At least we owe this to our children.

    CSE is a very good indicator... It shows the impact of every activity without favouring any colour or party...


    Those days each LTTE bomb send the market down.. These days every special announcement of Ranil and every economic decision like interim budget or budget send market down...

    We can have our party favoritism while burning with Margin Calls , but once a chart of CSE movement is created like above , it will show the real impact...


    LTTE Bombs as well as words of immature politicians are harmful to economic well being...

    I feel it's an ok indicator - but not a very good one. Our market is not that matured.

    A few key players control "too much" of how much it moves (i am not saying they should not be there . But they can easily "rag doll" the index).

    We can have our party favoritism while burning with Margin Calls , but once a chart of CSE movement is created like above , it will show the real impact...


    LTTE Bombs as well as words of immature politicians are harmful to economic well being...

    Total Blackout or Lunatic Eclipse? Empty Re: Total Blackout or Lunatic Eclipse?

    There seems to be a technical problem in Sri Lanka's grid; which should have been addressed by engineers.

    Whenever, there is a failure in any regional 'center' connected to the CEB grid, the whole country's power is going to fail. And to get it up and running back, it would usually, take hours.

    The recent comments issued by the 'authorities' imply that CEB, currently, does not have an effective alarm and information processing system in place. That's why, it seems, they take hours to find where the problem is; theoretically, which should have been done within seconds.

    May be the problem is with planning engineers, OR at the same time, if the 'authorities' were qualified enough, they should have lead the 'engineers' to implement the necessities in advance.

    Since 'Karu Jayasooriya' era was also mentioned;

    I remember, he was the one who came with the 'leadership' to find a 'timely' solutions to the power cuts at that time.

    However, as we learnt, the diesel generators purchased were not the 'correct' ones for Sri Lankan requirement. We needed generators for 'on demand' power for the peak time. But the generators we got, apparently were 'continuously on line' type where, even when not required, they needed to be running leading to 'waste' of (Huge amounts of) fuel.

    Is there a suggestion to buy Electricity from India ?

    Is this a mind-preparation session for that ?


    Are there power failures in different parts of the island even now ?

    I came to Panchkawatte and had a look at the Power Generators for sale.

    The units are going like hot cakes.
    A 5 KVA unit will cost between 150K - 190K which is just sufficient power for a fridge, 2 fans and some light bulbs. (230 volts / 50 Hertz) Runs on diesel. ATS unit ( Automatic Transfer Switch) included.

    The silent genies will cost more.
    The noise is the same as a Turk yuk with about 80 decibels within the limits of the environmental regulations.

    Only thing is that the neighbors may complain about the noise. So put the fellow in a small room not occupied by animals or humans and it will be fine.

    Happy CEB strikes and may all put their Air Conditioning units on without care for the others.

    Just wanted to know about the following and if you know please answer.

    1) How many households in Sri Lanka do have electricity? and as a % out of 100?
    2) Any analysis as to which period the households got electricity connections? The best period for the households where majority got electricity?
    3) In which period Sri Lanka had uninterrupted electricity?

    I am not the expert on energy consumption and generation. However, I can tell you something more realistic.

    The population growth in Lanka is only 0.8% in 2014 over 2013. That's very risky for the nation in the long run. Only races or nations having a growth in population can prosper in the future and you can do the math and conclusions by what I said just now.

    The reason for the power failure may be that one of the smart people had a bizarre plan to increase the population statistics by knocking out the lights thinking that it would induce and encourage begetting!!

    Only problem is that they cut it during the day and still worse it was pretty hot and that action would never take on fertility.

    All their plans went berserk!

    when peoples try to increase population they can burn lots of calories too. so no need walking tracks, it helps to burn more than 200 calories for 30 minutes work out to increase population

    and still worse it was pretty hot and that action would never take on fertility
    do you know why india and china have biggest population in the world. because of heat. heat helps to heat you up.when you reduce heat population growth hit all time high  

    Only problem is that they cut it during the day
    This is the reason that our office mates have more than one woman in their office . when there is a power cut , they need someone to time pass and to reduce   their heat

    I think we can scientifically prove that the birth rate of any country as a % of the total populations has been inversely propositional to the electricity availability throughout the history.

    Let's check next year's birth rate compared to this years.

    මේ වන විට රටේ අවශ්‍යතාවට සරිලන තරම් විදුලිබල ධාරිතාවක්‌ මණ්‌ඩලය සතුව නොමැති නිසා දැනුම්දීමකින් තොරව වරින්වර විදුලිය කපා හරින බව විදුලිබල හා පුනර්ජනනීය බලශක්‌ති නියෝජ්‍ය ඇමැති අජිත් පී. පෙරේරා මහතා "දිවයින"ට පැවැසීය.

    රට පුරාම විදුලිය බිඳ වැටුණු පසු නොරොච්චෝල බලාගාරයෙන් මෙගොවොට්‌ නවසියයක්‌ම අහිමි වීමෙන් මේ වන විට මෙගොවොට්‌ 350-400 ක පමණ හිඟයක පවතින බව නියෝජ්‍ය ඇමැතිවරයා කියා සිටියේය.

    ලංකා විදුලිබල මණ්‌ඩලය හා පුද්ගලික බලාගාරවලින් ලබා ගන්නා විදුලියද ඇතුළත්ව මෙගොවොට්‌ 3900 ක පමණ විදුලිබල ධාරිතාවක්‌ මණ්‌ඩලය සතුව තිබුණද මේ දිනවල පවතින නියඟය හා නොරොච්චෝල ගල්අඟුරු බලාගාරය අක්‍රියවීම නිසා මෙගොවොට්‌ 350-400 ක හිඟය මතුවී ඇතැයි ඇමැතිවරයා සඳහන් කළේය.

    ඇතිවූ ක්‍ෂණික දුෂ්කර තත්ත්වය සැලකිල්ලට ගෙන විදුලිය අරපරිස්‌සමින් භාවිත කරන ලෙස රජය ජනතාවගෙන් ඉල්ලා සිටින බවද ඇමැතිවරයා පැවැසීය.

    විදුලිය කපා හරින කාලය නිල වශයෙන් නිවේදනය නොකරන්නේ මන්දැයි අප කළ විමසීමකට පිළිතුරු දුන් නියෝජ්‍ය ඇමැතිවරයා කියා සිටියේ යම්කිසි කාලයක්‌ ප්‍රකාශයට පත් කළහොත් විදුලිය අරපරිස්‌සම් කිරීමේ උත්සාහය අසාර්ථක වීමට ඉඩ තිබෙන බවයි. ඒ අනුව දැනට නොදන්වා ප්‍රදේශයෙන් ප්‍රදේශයට විදුලිය කපා හැර පවතින තත්ත්වයට මුහුණදීමට සිදුව ඇති බවද හෙතෙම පැවැසීය.

    ජනතාව දැඩි අපහසුතාවට පත් නොකර ඉතා කෙටි කාලයකට මෙලෙස විදුලිය කපා හරින ලෙස උපදෙස්‌ දී ඇතැයිද හැකි ඉක්‌මනින්ම රටට අවශ්‍ය විදුලිය ජනනය කිරීමට විදුලිබල මණ්‌ඩලය සියලු උත්සාහ ගන්නා බවද ඇමැතිවරයා තවදුරටත් කියා සිsටියේය.
