6 6 Electricity AC generators (“alternators”) generate electricity Electricity generated at 9-13 KV Power generated from 67.5 to 1000 MW Power stations: generating transformers (GTs) to increase voltage to 132-400 KV Substations: step-down transformers to reduce voltage before distribution Generation & Distribution

7 7 Electricity Benefits of high voltage transmission Less voltage drop: good voltage regulation Less power loss: high transmission efficiency Smaller conductor: lower costs Generation & Distribution

15 15 Electricity Advantages for utility: Reduced reactive component of network Reduced total current in the system from the source end Reduced I2R power losses Reduced need to install additional distribution network capacity PF Correction: Capacitors

23 23 Electricity Transformers are classified based on: Input voltage Operation Location Connection Transformer types

24 24 Electricity Electricity is the flow of electrons in a conductor. The electrons must have a path to and from its source. This path is called a circuit.

25 Normal, Open and Short Circuits Normal Circuit ◦ When normal current is flowing through the circuit Open Circuit ◦ When the current flow is interrupted by switch or fuse ◦ Circuit break presents an extremely high resistance. Short Circuit ◦ When the current flowing through the circuit is following a “shorter” low resistance path between the power source terminals. ◦ Allows high current to flow in the circuit T0- 25

26 Electricity  Various electrical devices are used as a part of the circuit.  These devices are used for a variety of activities, such as turning the electricity off and on, providing electricity to various lights or appliances, etc.

27 Types of Electrical Currents  Electrical current comes in two forms: ◦ Direct current (DC)  Flows in only one direction.  It is usually generated by battery-base electrical systems and used in the electrical systems of internal combustion engines or flashlight batteries. ◦ Alternating current (AC)  Reverses the direction of flow of current many times each second.  AC is the type used in homes, factories, etc.

28 Electrical Service  Service is provided to homes, businesses and other small users of electricity by three wires from a utility pole.  Two of the wires are “hot,” each carrying 220 volts.  The other wire is “neutral,” and provides the return path for electricity.

29 Electrical Service (cont.)  These wires are connected to a service entrance, which is where the electricity enters a building.  A meter is used in the service entrance to measure the amount of electricity being used.

30 Electrical Service (cont.)  The service entrance is grounded with a wire connected to a ground rod driven several feet into the ground.  It is needed to provide a return path to the ground and to carry away stray electrical current out of the system.

31 Service Panel  Follows the meter.  It houses the circuit breakers for the system and is used to distribute the power to individual circuits throughout the system.

32 Overcurrent  When a circuit uses too much electricity, an overcurrent causes a circuit breaker to trip, shutting down the power to that circuit.  The excessive heat caused by an overcurrent condition may burn or damage a conductor’s insulation and cause a fire.  A circuit breaker is a heat-sensitive switch, which automatically trips when electricity demand is too great which causes the temperature in the conductor to get too hot.

33 Amps Volts Watts The following relationship exists between Amps, Volts and Watts.  Amperes are a measure of the rate of flow of electricity in a conductor.  Volts are a measure of electrical pressure.  Watts are a measure of the amount of energy or work that can be done by amperes and volts.

34 Amps Volts Watts (cont.) Thus, the following relationship exists. Work = Pressure x Flow Or Watts = Volts x Amperes

35 Amps Volts Watts (cont.)  This formula is commonly referred to as the West Virginia Formula W=VA  When we know any two variables of the formula, we can calculate the other.

36 Amps Volts Watts (cont.) Formulas Watts = Volts x Amps Volts = Watts / Amps Amps = Watts / Volts

37 Calculating Amperage If we have a 100 watt lamp plugged into a 120 volt receptacle, we can determine the rate of flow or the amperes for that circuit. Amps = 100 Watts / 220 Volts 100 / 220 =.4545 Amps

38 Calculating Watts If a water heater operates at 20 amps on a 240 volt circuit, what is the wattage of the appliance? Watts = 220 Volts x 20 Amps 4800 Watts =220V x 20A Watts=4400

39 Calculating Volts If an electric motor operates at 2880 watts and 12 amps, what would be the voltage requirement for that motor? Volts = 2640 Watts / 12 Amps 2640 / 12 = 240 Volts
