Re: That table actually tells us why Turnbull is right

Let me counter your analysis with a simple question.

Do you think that 2 wind farms that are 100Km apart would switch off within 0.05 of a second of each other because they independently judged the wind speed too strong?

Or is it just possible that they both went into a controlled shutdown after some safety system noticed something very bad about the grid they were feeding as indicated in the article?
