The contribution of magnetic storms in the accident rate  on systems of power engineering, automatics and communications

Technosphere Safety

In this paper the influence of geomagnetic storms on the technospheric objects and especially the electrical network are considered. It is shown that the main cause of accidents on the power lines and communication are geomagnetically induced currents generated during magnetic storms variable magnetic fields in conducting systems. Consideration of the additional factors: increase the effects of geomagnetic storms in the technosphere - drift of the magnetic pole in the northern hemisphere in the direction of the Arctic coast of Russia is fulfilled. The “Center heliogeophysical problems and prediction of impacts on the environment and the technosphere”, including the use of results of the “Permanent space solar-magnetospheric patrol mission” is proposed to create.
