RECENT TRENDS IN TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION

It is a fascinating time for the industry of transmission and distribution. Since the discovery of electricity in the mid-1700s by Ben Franklin, people have used electricity in different ways and it remains one of the greatest discoveries of all time. Electricity could be used to power almost anything, and it allowed for so many future inventions. A few centuries later, electricity has become a necessity for most of the world. But as technology changes, what are some of the trends in the electrical transmission and distribution industry?


As with almost anything else, over time, technology improves. It is the same with transmission and distribution systems. Around half a century ago, the syste...

WHAT IS TO COME FOR TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION

The direction of transmission and distribution is changing. More electricity is being used than ever before and it is up to electric companies to deal with it. There are several possibilities, but the future will be determined by the decisions made now. There are many possible outcomes but in due time, utility companies will opt for whichever solution brings people the safest and most dependable power.


Towards the end of the last blog, the idea of energy being stored in batteries in the near future was mentioned. This is increasingly becoming a reality as the price of storage decreases and it will undoubtedly be a large part of the future. Battery storage works by distributing electricity in ...

BIGGEST CHALLENGES IN TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION WORK

Many people consider this to be a new age for technology. Things that were unimaginable 25 years ago have become reality. But as technology improves, more electricity is being used. This leaves several challenges for electrical engineering companies across the country.


In the United States, there has been over a 500% increase in energy use since 1950. This means that the transmission and distribution systems being replaced today are outdated and have been used over their intended life span. Knowing this, engineers face an impossible task: predicting the future. They must replace the aging infrastructure with new systems that are prepared for the increasing amount of electricity that will be u...
