What is the charging current in the transmission line


The line system, as briefly summarized both the lines for the distribution of the electrical current within the actual area of ​​use and the connection between this and the transformer stations or power plants, requires with regard to the importance it has for economic and always flawless work The transmission and distribution of electricity is a matter of careful consideration and great care not only in the calculation, but also in the type of mechanical design. On the one hand, the voltage drop in the lines calculated from the generator in the power plant or from the busbars of a distribution point to the most distant point of use and the state of the insulation is a measure of the efficiency of the power transmission and is therefore primarily used when calculating the annual operating expenses and the electricity price Appearance.

This chapter is part of the Springer Book Archives digitization project with publications that have appeared since the publisher's beginnings in 1842. With this archive, the publisher provides sources for both historical and disciplinary research, each of which must be viewed in a historical context. This chapter is from a book that was published before 1945 and is therefore not advertised by the publisher in its political-ideological orientation typical of the time.
