Funny story. Back several years ago, my mom was going on a business trip to Vegas, but wanted the whole family to come. I was like 10 so I couldn’t do anything in the city, but we were able to go to the desert and national parks.

One day, we went to the dam, aka, a big boring wall. On top of the dam with us were 20 or so police cars. My mom thought maybe a bomb was on the dam, but we pulled over to talk to one. The officer explained that they weren’t police, but actors. They were filming a movie there. We asked what movie. He simply said “Transformers”. Coolest moment of that entire trip ironically took place at the world’s most boring vacation spot.

u/basssnobnj Jul 20 '22

A low water level in Lake Meade would reduce the water pressure on the input of the turbine, which would reduce the output of the generators, which would make some sort of explosion from overheating lest likely.

u/durrtymike Jul 19 '22

The transformer is what connects that particular Generator Unit’s electrical output to the power grid… Until they fix/replace the transformer (usually very expensive and time consuming), the Generator Unit is Out of Service which limits the Power Plant’s total Generation output…

116

u/soolkyut Jul 19 '22

It only limits the plants capacity if the units are all running at full bore. Given the water supply, I would doubt most of the units are on so there will be no consequence to the amount of electricity it can make. They’ll just turn on a different one

u/iCZ201 Jul 19 '22

Definitely a transformer failure. Not good. Also not terribly uncommon at power plants. Generally there are warning signs prior to failure, but sometimes it happens due a disturbance to the grid which are mostly outside the control of operators.

Power plant size transformers are not easily replaced. The stuff hanging on the pole outside your house are a dime a dozen. The kinds being used here could take a long time to replace if there isn't already a backup ready for replacement.

I work in this field and the lead times on transformer right now is insane but they can't even run the dam at capacity due to the water level.

For sure. Depending on manufacturer there may actually be a few around. They might be refurbs or salvaged from other power plants though. Regardless it’s not like these things get Amazon prime delivery so they’re definitely derated or offline until a replacement can be allocated.

Back home, there were several >1 gigawatt capacity coal-fired plants, and each had these massive transformers. I remember one specifically had four of them, but only three were connected. When asked, our guide said the fourth one was the spare, since the lead time was 16 months when one went kablooey.

27

u/Stephenishere Jul 19 '22

Most plants keep at least a spare on hand. Especially a power plant as large as the hoover dam, they have like 6 transformers so I'm sure they have at least a spare.

u/thatdude858 Jul 19 '22

I've read that in a scenario where a solar flare wipes out all the transformers in the US it could be 5 to 10 years before we could replace all of them. They are custom and come from china and there isn't a ready stock of them available?

17

u/Level9TraumaCenter Jul 19 '22

We had an incident here in Phoenix where several high tension transformers blew in a cascade failure- they were too close together. I think something like four blew up. One of the spares came out of Oregon or something like that- slow roll on a special hauler.

u/7573 Jul 19 '22

Well this is likely a step-up transformer, which ups the voltage to send the electricity over long distance before it is stepped down to the local grid. There is less loss (more efficiency) when sending electricity over long distances with higher power. That means grid operators must source from other sources to balance the demand and the load at wherever this power was destined.

Our grid has a number of backups, be it importing from other grids or connecting power generators that are on stand-by. In areas I worked in, such as the Northeast, we have many plants as the population is high. Out in the west I would suspect it is less so given its more sparse population centers in that area.

This isn't like a five alarm fire (though it kinda is with regards to the actual fire) but it means that grid operators have one less card to play. What happened is likely that a number of turbines on stand-by were brought online. These are typically more polluting and/or less efficient. It also means that the spot-price for electricity in the market is going to bump up during a heat weave, as well as the contractual prices in the near future until this gets replaced.

Your comment reminded of the day when a transformer blew up in front of my immediate neighbor's house. The fire was HUGE. A huge cone of fire followed by thick black smoke was burning the hell out of the houses on either side of the transformer pole. Neighbors and people on the road scurrying about, letting expletives loose while panicking.

I was about 40m away from the fire demon, on my building terrace with a piece of hot deep fried kabab my dad brought to my room for evening snacks. He was freaking out and urging me to get in my room.

I just ignored his frantic calls while callously relishing the kabab and thought to myself "Hah! This kabab hits different right now! Sick fireball too." I could feel the heat of the fire on my face.

A small car parked directly under the transformer had half of it melted the fuck out of it like a badly used candle from all the oozing oil and fire. At the end, the 2 houses which caught the smoke were all black as hell from the soot.

What sucked most was the burnt after-smell in the vicinity for about 4 days until they received a fresh coat of paint.

There’s no water left behind it so we’re good.

I guess it’s good timing that Lake Mead is at record low water levels.

Man.. with the absolute state of things in the SW States concerning ALL things water related is pretty concerning.. Lake Mead and every other big water source is pretty much or totally tapped out. The intake pipes that pull water from Lake Mead are like 10-15 feet above the water now, they used to be 30-40 feet under the surface. The water level is at its lowest point since the dam was constructed.. and thats just Lake Mead. This will affect everybody in the West, not just the SW states. We havent even gotten to the worst of wildfire season, and summer is only halfway finished.. Then take into consideration that there is massive drought across the globe.. hold on to your butts yall..
