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 
know it:

Rubbish again. 

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
entirely right.


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.
