More information after this article was published, states the worker had removed a protection capacitor and was going to replace it when the substation tripped out. These substations should be able to take a direct lightning hit, trip offline and not affect the grid in this manner. Someone screwed up on the design of this substation, makes one wonder how many others have been poorly designed? If one guy doing his job could cause this much mayhem, what could a group with a terriorist agenda do?
