2006 European blackout

On Saturday, November 4, 2006, a planned and routine disconnection of the Ems powerline crossing in Northwest Germany was carried out to allow a ship to pass beneath the overhead cables. The disconnection resulted in minor changes in load flows. During the next thirty minutes, the situation changed rapidly with unexpected load flows threatening the N1 safety limit. An uncoordinated attempt to re-route the load flow resulted in the tripping of the Landesbergen-Wehrendorf 380kV interconnector.
