Why do we require grid for transmission of electricity?


#2

Primary sources for electricity power are unevenly distributed and the generation plants are also unevenly located. Thus, bulk transmission of electric power over long distances becomes necessary. We require grid to synchronise power generation with transmission and distribution of electricity. Grid facilitates economising and increasing reliability. Grid avoids overloading of transmission lines, frequent breakdowns and loss of surplus power.
