. (a) At what voltage is the electric power from the generating station transmitted


(a) At what voltage is the electric power from the generating station transmitted? Give reasons to your answer.

(b) What is the nature of current transmitted from the power station?

Best Answer

(a) Generation at voltage higher than 11 kV causes insulation difficulties, while generation at voltage lower than 11 kV involves a very high current. Hence, electric power from the generating station is transmitted at 11 kV.

(b) Alternating current (AC) is the nature of current transmitted from the power station
