Overview of electric power
3 main issues pertaining to
electric power…
• Generation
• Transmission
• Distribution
7.
Electric Power Uses
• Lighting, heating, cooling and other domestic electrical
appliances used in home/office.
• Irrigating vast agricultural lands using Tube wells.
• Running motors, furnaces of various kinds, in
industries.
• Amount of national electrical power consumption used
as an indicator of economic prosperity.
8.
Power generation P = (V x I)Watts
• Early 18th century, electrical power generated
and stored in the form of DC batteries.
• Limitations
– Low current/voltage achieved.
– Not feasible to transmit power over long
distances.
– Area specific generation and distribution resulted
in cost prohibitive deployment.
9.
From DC to AC
• Faraday’s Laws of electromagnetic Induction

the left coil induces a current in the right coil
10.
From DC to AC
• A power system with 3-phase, 50 Hz A.C generation,
transmission and distribution networks.
– transmission of large power (MW) at higher transmission
voltage.
– Level of voltage could be changed virtually to any other
desired level with transformers which is impossible in DC
systems
• Nicola Tesla suggested simpler electrical motors
(induction motors)
• Tesla’s arguments resulted in mass switchover from
D.C to A.C systems.
15.
Transmission
• Power generated in a power station (hundreds of MWatts) is
transported over a long distances (hundreds of kilometers) with
transmission lines and towers.
