Day after day, between 13:30 and 14:30, most frequently a few minutes after 14:00 we're getting power outages in our firm. One (random) or both of RCDs protecting circuits to whole wing of the building activates, switching running computers off, powering tested devices off, and so on.
We don't have any device to activate at that time, and the fact two different circuits are affected (and there doesn't seem to be any pattern which of the two, or both), suggests some external source. We sought an internal source (using a power strip with milliamp meter plugged into the ground line) and measuring leakage from different devices shows we're approaching rated leakage amperage of the RCDs, but still staying good 30% below the threshold (50mA).
Now, for more info:
Our firm is located practically under two high-voltage lines leading to a power substation barely some 200m away, supplying power to iron works - a massive industrial complex of roughly 10km^2, involving some extremely heavy industrial machinery. It seems 2PM is the end of the first shift in the iron works. I don't know how much these things can influence us, just giving them as possible avenues of research.
Can you suggest what can be done about that? What can be the source of such failures? Getting UPS for the whole firm would be rather expensive.
