power outage Sunday afternoon, which state-run Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) explained was caused by the failure of the electricity user’s self-setting voltage transformer.

The power outage occurred at 2:16 p.m. and lasted for six minutes until 2:22 p.m., said a Miramar public relations official, adding that Taipower told them the blackout was caused by an anomaly in the electricity supply at its substation on the city’s Minquan East Road.

Taipower spokesman Lin Te-fu (林德福), however, told CNA that after a further check, his company found no abnormalities in the power supply on Taipower’s part.

The blackout was the result of a failed transformer set up by the user itself, Lin said, noting that the power was restored once the user fixed the problem.
