In text book, it has been said that corona reduces the effects of transients produced by surges. But, how does corona reduce the transient effect?
A large distribution grid can work like this. There're several power station each outputting 50 Hz AC. Each power station feeds energy into a substation next to it which raises the voltage and then ...
Reading this article, I started wondering if there is any way to stop people stealing electricity from a power grid. Let me clarify, the only techniques I have seen (and can think of) is either to ...
Is there a good reason why we are not in the process of completely converting our electrical transmission system to DC? The main reason for using AC on the grid (no offense Tesla, I love you man) was ...
I am looking for links, books, papers, documents or any other reference type that allows me to get a very in depth overview of the power transmission and distribution network (preferably of the UK). ...
I live in a region where nominal mains voltage is 220 volts and state standards permit deviations within 5 percent continuously and within 10 percent for short periods. So if I measure the voltage in ...
On August 7th, 2011 a lightning hit a transformer powering one of Amazon EC2 facilities in Dublin. The status report said Normally, upon dropping the utility power provided by the transformer, ...
Many region-wide blackouts (like this one or this one) are described as follows: some high-voltage equipment (like a generator or a transformer) fails and the grid gets overloaded and then protective ...
