6.18 Transformers in Power Stations

Explain the use of step-up and step-down transformers in the large-scale generation and transmission of electrical energy

After electricity is generated in a power plant it is transformed into very high voltage so that it can be transported across the country through power lines with little energy loss. It is then transformed down to the voltage used in household sockets.

A transformer that increases voltage is called a step-up transform, and a transformer the decreases voltage is a step-down transformer.

  1. hello friends
    we can make change in the power supply made from the Electrical power transformer , with the help of step up and step down system.
