Chapter 2 Generation, Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power (Lesson-2) 2.1 Goals of the lesson After going through the lesson you shall get a broad idea of the following: 1. Different methods of generating electrical power. 2. Issues involved in transporting this power to different types of consumers located generally at far off places from the generating stations. 3. Necessity of substations to cater power to consumers at various voltage levels. 2.2 Introduction In this lesson a brief idea of a modern power system is outlined. Emphasis is given to create a clear mental picture of a power system to a beginner of the course Electrical Technology. As consumers, we use electricity for various purposes such as: 1. Lighting, heating, cooling and other domestic electrical appliances used in home. 2. Street lighting, flood lighting of sporting arena, office building lighting, powering PCs etc. 3. Irrigating vast agricultural lands using pumps and operating cold storages for various agricultural products. 4. Running motors, furnaces of various kinds, in industries. 5. Running locomotives (electric trains) of railways. The list above is obviously not exhaustive and could be expanded and categorized in detail further. The point is, without electricity, modern day life will simply come to a stop. In fact, the advancement of a country is measured by the index per capita consumption of electricity – more it is more advanced the country is.
