FCAS in Action – What Happens When a Generator Trips? (or Never let the data get in the way of a good story)

Wow! The original article completely tried to bamboozle everybody by using two different scales on the same graph when a 560 MW coal plant suddenly tripped offline in Australia. Here is what was original published.
