Abstract

The EPIK project - Energy problems in Wartime - treats the problem of electricity demand during a swift and sudden military attack against the Stockholm area. The study focuses on those activities which are necessary to support the total national defence system and secure the survival of the population. In this context, certain activities and societal functions have very high priority. These include: civil command structures; information, communication and alarm functions; mobilization; the police and defence forces; civil defence and shelter; provision of water, food, medicine and certain industrial goods; emergency hospital treatment and nursing. In order to secure such activities, a number of physical systems - in this case particular objects - must function. The amount of electrical power required for these objects as well as for housing and less important high-consumption customers, is compared to the local electrical production capacity. From this comparison we can deduce if it is possible for defence planning to achieve its goals. The possibility of supplying these objects with electric power is discussed, as well as possible ways to minimize unnecessary consumption. We discuss mainly total electricity demand, production and distribution on a local level, different control mechanisms and power reserves. We discuss  More>>

The possibility of supplying these objects with electric power is discussed, as well as possible ways to minimize unnecessary consumption. We discuss mainly total electricity demand, production and distribution on a local level, different control mechanisms and power reserves. We discuss two possibilities for subsistence for the population - -food and heating at home vs. collective meals in public places such as schools - and show how electrical power consumption differs in these two cases. 8 refs, 5 figs}
