Then run parts at 105-110% and it gets really hard.
The power industry designs a grid that runs so close to capacity that if^W
when something big fails, the whole grid shuts down in a cascade. They
Welcome to the wonderful world of physics. Ask your favourite physics
professor what does
E1 = E2
in context of yesterdays events.
That's not really answering the question, and it's also not
But you *can't* just simplify this to Ein = Eout.
No, it is spinning physics that does not work - physics *is* simple as long
as one does not skip the linkage between different things:
Econsumed = Econsumed_productive + Qreleased + Wreqired
Econsumed_productive is what you actually used
Qreleased is the energy released in a form of a increase/decrease heat
Wrequired is the work required to get Econsumed.
