Standby power taking over in seconds is not an option, you need a large UPS between the generator and the Radar and computer equipment to hold power while the Generator power stabilises in the event of a chaos like this.

Quoting antonovman (Reply 4): well thats india for you
Its quite normanl to lose power at some time of the day
Ive spent a lot of time there and even in the best hotels the power goes out at least once a day
That's a different matter.....power outages are an everyday affair, but the aiports are on a different grid altogether......they're not supposed to lose power like that.....as HAWK21M said above, wait for the true story to come out......

Quoting comorin (Reply 6): Does that mean the ILS also got knocked out?
ILS does not use radar, so if it did get knocked out, it means the same guy accidentally kicked the plug on that too.
I'm confused as to how you accidentally unplug the radar system. That's like pushing a button labeled "self destruct" just to see what happens. Generators and a system reboot should take less than 1min. Anything longer and you might as well pull out the shrimp boats.
