    And his AC have to cool down the rooms again after a longer switch off because the rooms are heating up.

    Motors and other inductive resistances raises the amperage if the voltage is shrinking. Capacitive resistances like heaters raises the amperage when the voltage is rising.

    Its been a joke over this side of town for as long as ive been here with the brownouts. We certainly do get ample of them. When i spoke to one of the engineers a while ago they say it was a low power area,so why are they not doing something about it,its been long enough now. And certainly is not good for any appliances.

    Well, the problem is that we are not dealing with the simple “water pipe” theory of electrical circuits. We are dealing with things like “surges”, electrical effects involving very short times and very high currents and voltages. So I try to reduce it to the simplest math possible because math is the only tool that explains these things. So if that doesn’t work, it’s back to the water pipe theory which is way too simplistic to use in explaining surges, capacitive and inductive (motor load/ aircon) effects. But adherents of the water pipe theory become miffed when the find that lower voltage applied to an induction motor increases the current as it turns more slowly and the current turns into heat. Not enough voltage. But I suspect many people here have been educated in electrical theory in the Military and can understand my post and even add to it. It is an interesting topic because power outages and surges happen here all the time. Many engineers would never attempt to explain but I do respect the intelligence of people on this forum...I know, I know, that is a dangerous thing to say
