The INSAT-4B communication satellite has been hit by a "power supply anomaly" in one of its two solar panels which has led to switching off 50 per cent of the transponder capacity.Due to a power supply anomaly in one of its two solar panels, there has been a partial non-availability of services on India's INSAT-4B communication satellite, ISRO said in a release here today.On the night of July 7, the satellite experienced a power supply glitch which led to switching off 50 per cent of the transponder capacity (6 Ku and 6 C-Band transponders), the release said.An expert team is studying the possibilities of partial utilisation of some of the transponders that were switched �off �and restoring services at the earliest, it said.The INSAT-4B carries a total of 24 communication transponders (12 Ku-Band and 12 C-Band) and has been in operation since March 2007.
