transmission to consumers voltage decrease high-tension electricity transmission energy integration to the transmission network second voltage increase first voltage increase horizontal-axis wind turbine

transmission to consumers click to hear : transmission to consumers

The electricity is carried to areas of consumption by low-voltage distribution lines.

voltage decrease click to hear : voltage decrease

Before integrating the electricity into the home network, the voltage is progressively decreased to 240 V.

high-tension electricity transmission click to hear : high-tension electricity transmission

Using high-voltage lines to transmit electricity over long distances reduces the strength of the current and, as a result, energy losses.

energy integration to the transmission network click to hear : energy integration to the transmission network

The electricity produced is integrated into the network.

second voltage increase click to hear : second voltage increase

first voltage increase click to hear : first voltage increase

Increase in voltage: transformers carry high-voltage electricity produced by the alternator to reduce loss during transport.

horizontal-axis wind turbine click to hear : horizontal-axis wind turbine

The most common type of wind turbine whose axis is parallel to the direction of the wind.
