primary distribution system

The primary distribution system is that part of the electric distribution system between the distribution substation and distribution transformers. It is made up of circuits called primary feeders or distribution feeders.These feeders include the primary feeder main or main feeder, usually a three-phase, four-wire circuit, and branches or laterals, which can be either three-phase or …

distribution substations

Distribution substations serve a wide range of private and public customers in distributing electric power. They can be shareholder, cooperatively, privately, and government owned. All substations contain power transformers and the voltage-regulating apparatus required for converting the high incoming subtransmission voltages to lower primary system voltages and maintaining them within specified voltage tolerances. Those voltages, …

transformers

ransformer is a static electrical component with no moving parts that is used for stepping voltage up or down or isolating one circuit from another. Transformers have the ability to convert low-voltage, high-current AC to high-voltage, low-current AC, or vice versa, with minimal energy losses. Minimizing energy losses is critical in all power generation, transmission, …

hydroelectric power generation

hydroelectric power generation provides about 96 percent of the renewable energy in the United States. Other renewable resources include geothermal, wave power, tidal power, wind power, and solar power. Hydroelectric power plants do not use up resources to create electricity nor do they pollute the air, land, or water, as other power plants may. Hydroelectric …

source of electricity

More than 85 percent of source of electricity ( electric power generated) in North America is produced by AC generators that are driven by steam turbines. Of this amount, more than 65 percent of the steam is produced by burning of fossil fuels, primarily coal and natural gas. The below chart illustrates the distribution of …

electrical codes and standards

he generation, transmission, and distribution of electrical power are now deregulated, but many rules, electrical codes and standards , regulations, still apply to the manufacture of electrical equipment, the job site, and the installation of electrical systems. Many of these standards are focused on safety issues, such as the elimination or avoidance of hazards in …

electrical wiring diagrams

The most common electrical drawings are wiring diagrams or wiring plans. In these drawings the electrical lines and symbols are superimposed on an architectural floor plan. The drawing scale must be large enough to permit symbols and line conventions to be drawn legibly. Floor plans for new homes, office buildings, and large industrial, commercial, or …
