Switching-off Schedule

The Switching-off Schedule sets out the procedure and the amount of power tripped off in situations where a quick and usually short-term interruption in the energy supply is necessary to clear serious system or local failures within the Czech power system. In such cases, the power supply is interrupted by tripping off certain selected distribution system facility outlets usually for no more than two hours. The Switching-off Schedule is provided in Annex 2 to Regulation of the Ministry of Industry and Trade No. 80/2010 (in Czech), on a state of emergency in the power sector and the content of emergency plans, and in ČEPS Operational Instruction PI 820-1.
