Is there a doctor in the house?

Yes, paging for Dr. Frankenstein. Please refrain from using residential power supplies to power up your experiments!

The past few days we had at least 3 incidents where the power supply went into brownout mode. Now if the voltage was kinda constant at the brownout stage it would not be so bad, but the voltage was fluctuating in quite a dramatic level. It was as if the power is trying to get back up to the original level but keeps getting knocked down, like a punch drunk boxer. You can really hear the motors of the refrigerator and the washing machine convulsing like a dying worm.
