We all use electric energy but not all of us try to understand how it appears in our houses. Let's visit the main distribution complex of the Samara region (the International Distribution Internetwork of the Volga) to check it out.

Across the network:


Some electric networks have voltage 220-1150 kV. Such high figures are necessary to minimize losses of energy while its tranfer at long distances. As a rule in the cities they use distribution networks with voltage 110 kV or lower, such networks serve the International Distribution Internetwork of the Volga either. Then they are transformed into 6 or 10 kW that go to substations located in the yards of houses where voltage is lowered up to 220 V.

    This is stone age indoor AIS. In europe substations which built during last 20 years use SF6 GIS.

    There is a small mistake in text.
    kW stands for kilowatt, which is power unit.
    Voltage symbol is V. kV (kilovolt, 1000 volts) should be used when talking about transfer voltage.

    kV not kW. Big difference…
