    Rumor on campus is the ISU power plant went kaput.

    Re: Black out in Ames

    Would the ISU power plant affect the whole city of ames, if that's the case.

    Good question, where are the engineers?

    My understanding is the US power grid is all connected so if one plant goes out the next will up levels to make up for it. So the University plant going out may 'trip' the Ames plant?

    Nice boss. I'll be sending my guys home at 4 if the power doesn't come back on. Hard to do research with no power.

    Re: Black out in Ames

    Theoretically losing one power plant shouldn't take down all of ames, but ISU/Ames do some power trading with each other, so if ISU was carrying some of the load for Ames today then losing that source could've stressed the system enough to cause failures.
