Anatomy of an Electricity Grid An electricity grid is a complex network that consists of various components working in unison to deliver electricity from power plants to end-users. These components include:
Power plants generate electricity from various sources such as fossil fuels, nuclear energy, or renewable sources like wind and solar. They play a critical role in the initial generation of power.
RFID (Radiofrequency identification), which works on the radio frequency of radio waves. This technology is automatically identifying objects and tracking them.
Substations are vital intermediaries in the grid. They step down high-voltage electricity from transmission lines to lower voltage levels suitable for distribution.
Distribution lines carry electricity from substations to homes, businesses, and industries. They operate at lower voltages compared to transmission lines and are responsible for delivering power to the end-users.
