"and clearly has the capacity to take up 100%"
"Sure some non essential load has been shed"
Why? if it has capacity...
It sounds like the loop has taken down some of the power systems, which is a bit more of a problem, and rasies the question as to whether it has redundancy now? ever heard of double and tripple?
"The station is in a stable configuration with most systems receiving cooling and many systems operating with redundancy following the installation of jumper cables from the Destiny Lab’s power system overnight."
The quote says 'most' and 'many' and redundancy has only been restored via installed jumpers. My point is why drop to one loop at all? if each loop had redundancy built in they would not need to install jumpers to maintain redundancy. As I said the parts are there.
PS: nice handle. Admirable.
