Poles and Wires

Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)


So far we have discussed what electricity is and how it is made. In this chapter, we will talk about how it gets from the generator to our homes and workplaces. We discuss electricity networks and explain the difference between transmission networks and distribution networks. We then discuss transmission losses and introduce the concept of network control.
