Short summary
This paper describes the study of the effects of solar wind and solar storms on the national electrical power transmission grid in Austria. These storms result in currents in the ground that can cause damage to power grids, particularly those at high latitudes. Results show that very strong solar storms could result in problems in Austria as well, and this information is important to the grid operators to properly implement mitigation strategies in the future.
