Transmission line conductors – How to conduct electricity

Electric power is transmitted from power plant to the load (consumers) through conductors. Copper, aluminum, steel, Aluminum Conductor with Steel Reinforced (ACSR), and cadmium copper are invariably used for transmission line conductors. Properties of conductors i. High electrical conductivity ii. High tensile strength iii. Low cost iv. Less weight The properties of copper and aluminium […]

Power transmission

Electrical Power transmission is one of the major concern in the power supply system. There are three main areas of power system. They are power generation, transmission and distribution. Transmission is done by i. Overhead lines ii. Underground cables Power generation station Electricity is produced in power plants, which goes through different levels to reach […]
