Long wires, that carry electricity from the power plant to the customer get very hot due to the amount of current as well as the amount of conductive material through which the electrons have to travel. Given Pin> Pout and that P = I V, explain power companies step up the generated voltage (~ 13,000 V) to multiple times that value (~ 360,000 V).
Here is the reply to your question. Power companies use step up transformer to step up the voltage. For this case, the... View the full answer

Since, (Power) P = VI hence, if we step up the voltage then for held the power fixed current... View the full answer
