Power Transmission and Distribution

Our modern day world increasingly relies on electricity to power us and make our lives possible. It is Electrical Engineers who build the generators and systems that provide electricity to cities and towns all over the world. Learn more about the systems that create power, from power plants to alternative sources.
Electrical power is not normally generated at the point of consumption but could be hundreds of miles away from the place of utilization. When designing power generators, the distribution and transmission of power is a vital part of the project. Learn how engineers get the power from generation to your home using power lines, transmission signals and a number of other methods.
