WASHINGTON — An unexplained electrical failure was blamed today for touching off a series of problems which forced a shutdown of a California nuclear plant last Nov. 21.

"The event was significant," investigator Thomas T. Martin told the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. But he said there was "no significant release of radioactivity" at the plant near San Clemente, south of Los Angeles on the Pacific shore.
