Power Generation Transmission and Use

Electric Transmission and Distribution : Concepts

Electricity is generated at power plants and moves through a complex system, sometimes called the grid , of electricity substations, transformers, and power lines that connect electricity producers and consumers. Most local grids are interconnected for reliability and commercial purposes, forming larger, more dependable networks that enhance the coordination and planning of electricity supply. In the United States, the entire electricity grid consists of hundreds of thousands of miles of high-voltage power lines and millions of miles of low-voltage power lines with distribution transformers that connect thousands of power plants to hundreds of millions of electricity customers all across the country. The stability of the electricity grid requires the electricity supply to constantly meet electricity demand, which in turn requires coordination of numerous entities that operate different components of the grid. The U. The smart grid incorporates digital technology and advanced instrumentation into the traditional electrical system, which allows utilities and customers to receive information from and communicate with the grid. A smarter grid makes the electrical system more reliable and efficient by helping utilities reduce electricity losses and to detect and fix problems more quickly.

Technology Overview. The primary components of above-ground transmission lines include transmission structures lattice steel towers or tubular steel poles , conductors wires , insulators connect wires to structures , and ground wires lightning strike protection wires.

Electric power distribution is the final stage in the delivery of electric power ; it carries electricity from the transmission system to individual consumers. Distribution transformers again lower the voltage to the utilization voltage used by lighting, industrial equipment or household appliances. Often several customers are supplied from one transformer through secondary distribution lines. Commercial and residential customers are connected to the secondary distribution lines through service drops. Customers demanding a much larger amount of power may be connected directly to the primary distribution level or the subtransmission level. The transition from transmission to distribution happens in a power substation , which has the following functions: [2].

Electricity generation and transmission concept

Transmission and distribution refers to the different stages of carrying electricity over poles and wires from generators to a home or a business., Electric power transmission is the bulk movement of electrical energy from a generating site, such as a power plant , to an electrical substation.

The purpose of the electric transmission system is the interconnection of the electric energy producing power plants or generating stations with the loads. A three-phase AC system is used for most transmission lines. The operating frequency is 60 Hz in the U. The three-phase system has three phase conductors. The system voltage is defined as the RMS voltage between the conductors, also called line-to-line voltage.

  1. Electric power transmission is the bulk movement of electrical energy from a generating site, The combined transmission and distribution network is known as the "power grid" in North America, or just "the grid". In the United Kingdom, India.

  2. Electric power begins at a generating station, where the potential difference can be as high as 33, volts.
