13 How Do We Get Electricity?

How Do We Get Electricity?

Posted on November 22, 2012 by team

We are going to visit the United Energy Company of Moscow which controls all the urban electric network and see how electricity comes to houses. The place is located in the eastern part of the city and has been functioning since 2004.

This is their main building. Even in cold months green grass keeps growing here.

The main task of the company is energy transportation and connection of consumers to electric networks.

    “All the equipment is from Germany.”
    You seem proud of it!

    • America says:

      Would you prefer it to have been from China instead? German equipment is good. We’re talking about the reliability of your electric supply. Why risk using Russian equipment?

    The stone is for oil which can leak from transformer.

    Everything made in western countries…

    The breakstones are for uncomon leakages probably,ey they work there with expensive equipment and high voltage…u know what a leak can do to that….

    • JimBeam says:

      You are right, they are for oil leakage. These transformers contain thousands of liters special mineral oil and according to the regulations, there must be a leakage tank under them, big enough to hold safely all the volume of the oil.

    I guess the stones could be part of a vibration dampening system? But that is just a stab in the dark.
    Or the picture was taken outside :)

  9. Osip says:

    Stones are placed to reduce earthing (step potential also). They are much more resistive than the concrete.

    That’s all lies! Everybody knows that electricity comes from the wall socket, so no need for plants like that. And if you like chicken, one doesnt need to kill one, just go buy one from the supermarket.

    (yup, meant to be spoken like a typical teenager these days) ;)
