Have you ever wonder how the electricity reaches your home for serving to use electrical equipment? It has a simple process of transmission and distribution after it generates. It is generated in a power plant with the help of an electrical generator. Power plants are also known as Electricity generation plant, these are designed and planted in large areas and outside of the reach of population, as electricity can kill human if gets direct contact. After the generation of in-plant, it passes a few processes to reach out to the home for use, also it is important to have it in a required voltage. So that it can be used to serve the industries and homes.
Simply it is delivered to us by a grid, known as transmission lines. These lines can be very large in lengths. These lines are connected to the power generation plan also carrying the huge amount of high voltage electricity. So these lines cannot be connected directly to your home, as the amount of high electricity they carry can damage our power lines or the transformers. These lines work as transmission lines and transmit the electricity to a sub-station. Su-stations are used to manage the electricity voltage do that it can be served for everyone with the required amount and in balanced voltage. After the transmission process rests work is done by these sub-stations, they distribute the electricity to every area that connects by the electrical grid and having a transformer. There some lines connected to these transformers that are directly coming to our home and passing thought an electric meter. Which helps to measure the units used by the receiver.
In Electricity transmission and distribution, most import past is the transmission of electricity from a plant that needs to be done by transmissions lines. These lines are huge in length and transmit the electricity from area to area. These lines carry the current and required some components and accessories for connection to a transmission tower. These Accessories include conductors, insulators, damping devices, the Earthling system and many more. These components are attached to transmission lines, quality, and materials of these most important so that these can last for a long time. There are many manufacturers available for Transmission line accessories, you can all these components online also. VL Industries are well-known manufactures of these various components. They make quality products, having large numbers of clients across the Rajasthan. You can also purchase other industrial products from them such as MS Granting, Fencing for sub-station, Shuttering plates.
Depending on your city area, and the country, the measurement unit can be different. Here in India, we used a Unit to measure it. Further, it can be represented in kWH, for example if we use 1kWH or 1000 watts for an hour then it can be as 1 unit of electricity. In a calculation it can be calculated as:
100 * 10 = 1000 Watts-Hour = 1 kWH = 1 Unit.
Depending on an appliance, the unit consumed by it in an hour can be different. Appliances with high watts such as A.C, Power Motor, Electric Heater, consume more units than small appliances with low watts such as bulb, refrigerator, and television. The cost of electricity is the most important part and decides the usage of electricity. The cost of a unit is can be different in each city and area depending on your Government. Also, the cost of a unit is not constant but it varies if the user consumes more units.
For example if the cost of a unit is INR 3, so it cannot be the same for all users. Simply you can check your electricity bill there is a grid available, which shows the cost according to the usage. It can be like:
0-50 Units – 1 Unit is INR (Any Amount)
51-100 Units – 1 Unit is INR (Amount Increased)
101-200 Units – 1 Unit is INR (Amount Increased)
201-500 Units – 1 Unit is INR (Amount Increased)
501-1000 Units – 1 Unit is INR (Amount Increased)
If a unit costs INR 3 Rupees and you have consumed 35 Units, so the cost of electricity usage is 3 * 35 = INR 105. While if you have consumed 600 Units it cannot be multiplied with 3, the cost of a unit must be different there, surely more than 3. So the users who consumed more units have a huge amount of bills, similarly the charges of units are also different for industrial usage where a huge amounts of electricity required.
