What is electric power generation transmission and distribution?

209 views

1 Answer

Answer :

Generation: it wrong word at here.because it is no generation it is conversion of one form of energy into electrical form.it may by using any type of energy.

Transmission is just to deliver this electrical energy from one place to other by providing some modifications

And distribution means use of this energy for any purpose.
