Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Television pickup is a phenomenon affecting the British electricity transmission network. As the British public tend to watch the same TV programmes and take advantage of breaks in these programmes to operate electrical appliances (particularly kettles) they cause large, synchronised surges in electricity consumption. National Grid staff devote considerable resources to predicting and providing electricity supply for these events which typically impose an extra demand of around 200-400 (MW) on the Grid. Short term supply tends to be found from pumped storage reservoirs, which can be quickly brought online, backed up by the slower fossil fuel and nuclear power stations. The largest ever pickup was on 4 July 1990 when a 2800MW demand was imposed by the ending of the in the England v West Germany FIFA World Cup semi-final. In addition to pickups the Grid also prepares for synchronised switch-offs during remembrance and energy awareness events.
