I need a simple explanation on how power is generated, transmitted and distributed to consumers .?
And to know the associated transformers used in each station.

Typically, power transmission is between the power plant and a substation near a populated area. This is distinct from electricity distribution, which is concerned with the delivery from the substation to the consumers. Due to the large amount of power involved, transmission normally takes place at high voltage (110 kV or above). Electricity is usually sent over long distance through overhead power transmission lines (such as those in the photo on the right). Underground power transmission is used only in densely populated areas (such as large cities) because of the high capacitive and resistive losses incurred.

Power transmission over relatively long distances experiences line voltage drop. When the electricity reaches the sub-station, transformers recondition the power to correct for the line drop and current variances.

3 section potential is extra efficient by way of fact potential stations generate potential in 3 section. for this reason it quite is handy. Is is likewise extra efficient than unmarried section potential by way of way a motor works. it is likewise the way the Grid is desperate up 3-section with a floor.
