Ofgem expect the likelihood of 'intentional' brownouts to increase over the next few years. There will be 2 stages of reduction 3% and 6%. The +10%/-6% values are apllied after the reduction values. Therefore: -
For the 3% reduction this would mean the supply voltage being between 209.7v and 245.4v
For a 6% reduction this would mean the supply voltage being between 203.2v and 237.8v
Does anyone know what impact this would have on the electrical equipment on industrial sites and are there any measures that could be taken to minimise any risk?

Can you give us a reference to the OFGEM report that gives this information.

How do they define an "intentional brownout" ? A steady voltage reduction is not how I understand a "brownout"

I would think any critical applications are protected now as nothing has ever been guaranteed! OFGEM have said for years that if an industry needs a highly reliable/high quality electric supply then it should make its own arrangements, the public utility supply is about supplying domestic consumers.
