High level of demand on the reactive and active power remains unchanged. Due to lack of sufficient amount of cooling water or/and exceeded water temperature levels the generating capacities of some power plants systematically decrease. As this situation concerns mainly the power plants located in the central and northern part of Poland, the loadings of some transmission lines reach the acceptable limits what in turn cause the necessity of generation decrease in power plants located outside the mentioned region.
Current weather forecasts indicate possibilities for further deterioration of operational conditions in the Polish power system for the period between July 24th and 28th.
