  • 6. 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 A diagram of Faraday's iron ring apparatus. Change in the magnetic flux of 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.
  • 11. From DC to AC
  • 12. A.C generation - Coal
  • 13. A.C generation - Hydal
  • 14. A.C generation - Nucleur
  • 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.
  • 16. Transmission plus distribution
