Best Answer

electric power

The electric power is generated at 11 kV at a power generating station. The alternating voltage is transmitted to the grid sub-station from here and stepped up to 132 kV using a step-up transformer. It is then transmitted to the main sub-station. At the main sub-station the voltage is stepped down to 33 kV using a step-down transformer and is then transmitted to the intermediate sub-station. The voltage is stepped down to 11 kV using a step-down transformer at the intermediate sub-station. From here it is transmitted to the city sub-station, where the voltage is further stepped down to 220 V and is supplied to our houses.
