QSM 554 ELECTRICITY

NOOR AISYAH ASYIKIN D416

Electricity is a flow of electric charge along a wire. The more charge that are passing along the wire the larger the current

Two types : Positive and negative

Magnitude of force : Coulombs law

SI unit of electricity = coulomb = quantity of electricity

BASIC OF ELECTRICITY

Electric Current = flow of electron along a conductor that forced by generator/ battery, to a consuming device then back to the source

Figure 1: Current flow in an electric circuit

BASIC OF ELECTRICITY

2 Types of electric current = AC and DC Alternating Current (AC) = varies periodically in value and directions more economical - ability to change the voltage levels by using transformers Direct Current (DC) = has a constant flow in one direction low-voltage applications, eg: batteries which can only produced DC.

TERMINOLOGY OF ELECTRICITY

Ampere (A) - a unit of the rate of flow of electric current, eg := 1 ampere represents a current flow of one coulomb of charge per second

Volt (V) - electrical force that causes free electrons to flow along a conductor

Ohm () - the unit of electric


resistance of a conductor

TERMINOLOGY OF ELECTRICITY
Ohms Law

V=IxR

where V is the applied voltage, measured in volts I is the current, measured in amperes R is the resistance, measured in ohms

Figure 2: Relationship between V, I and R in Ohms Law

CONDUCTOR vs. INSULATOR

CONDUCTOR = A material where electric current flows Copper and aluminium are commonly used

Good conductors have a low resistance to the flow of electricity


INSULATOR = a materials that do not conduct electricity E.g. glass, ceramic and plastics They are used on electrical devices to provide protection from the electricity

POWER AND ENERGY

ENERGY- term used to express work = kilowatt-

hours (unit) (unit)

POWER = rate at which energy is used = watts

i.e. a WATT is one ampere flowing under an electromotive force of one volt
Relationship : W = I2 R (watts ampere2 x ohms)

TRANSFORMER

Distribution need for long distance transmission efficiency, and yet customer safety, reconciled by use of transformer Transformer comprises primary input and secondary input windings around a common metal loop, and the respective number of windings determines whether the voltage is stepped up or down.

ELECTRICITY GENERATION

Electricity generation is the first process in the delivery of electricity to consumers The process which involves the generation of electricity Electricity is generated in power stations by using a form of energy sources such as; water (hydroelectric), steam, gas, solar, nuclear and battery.

At power station, electric power is produced at 1120 kV and frequency 50 Hz.

SOURCE AND GRID

Most power-station alternators are driven by steam, generated by heat of fossil-fuel combustion, nuclear reaction, solar geothermal or hydroelectric
mechanical energy RESERVOIR

types of SOURCES

Sources can be divided into 2 groups: Renewable replace in a reasonable period of time by natural process that we can use over and over again e.g hydro, wind, solar, wave, tidal, biomass, geothermal

Non-Renewable - an energy source that we are using up and cannot recreate in a short period of time e.g coal, natural gas, oil, uranium

ADVANTAGES

Economics
some plants now in service having been built 50 to 100 years ago Operating labor cost is usually low since plants are automated sale of electricity from the dam will cover the construction costs after 5 to 7 years of full generation

ADVANTAGES

Related activities provide facilities for water sports, and become tourist attractions fish farm with relatively constant water supply
boats may be used to improve transportation.

No pollution. generates no nuclear waste nor nuclear leaks

DISADVANTAGES

Environmental damage
can be disruptive to surrounding aquatic ecosystems changes the downstream river environment many native and migratory birds have become increasingly endangered

DISADVANTAGES

Sediment build up and dam failure. enemy bombardment during wartime, sabotage and terrorism the Banqiao Dam failure in China resulted in the deaths of 171,000 people and millions homeless Population relocation relocate the people living where the reservoirs are planned historically and culturally important sites can be flooded and lost

Process in the generation of electricity in a hydroelectric power plant

In hydroelectric schemes, they are turned by water pressure from the reservoir. The power station is constructed at the bottom of the reservoir. A water passage will connect the reservoir with the turbine room. This is where the water will run down.

The flowing (or falling) water from the reservoir will push against the turbine blades, causing the rotor to spin. (contd)

Process in the generation of electricity in a hydroelectric power plant

Then, the turbine will turning the copper inside the generator and generating an electric current Next, the electric current will be transferred to the transformer at the switch room. The power then is pooled into the National Grid, a countrywide network cables.

ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION & DISTRIBUTION

ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION

The transmission system consist of :

Pylons (transmission towers)

Transformers

Substations

High voltage cables (transmission lines)

ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION

Electricity is transmitted via high voltage cables using 3 phase supply

The voltage is stepped up or down by using transformers The use of high voltage enables a large amount of energy to be transmitted through smaller diameter cables.

ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION

The supply of electricity is transmitted in the form of alternating current (AC).

At Power Station, electric power is produced at 11-20kV.


The power is then transformed to higher voltages (132kV ,200kV or 275kV) using power transformer AND

ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION

transferred through the Transmission System to substations where voltage is lowered to 33kV or 11kV.
The Distribution System begins after this point.

PYLON / TOWER LINE


A pylon is a lattice steel structure used to support overhead electricity conductors for power lines. Pylons at which sections of conductor start, finish or change direction are called strainer pylons. They may need anchor wires to counterbalance the weight of the conductors on the opposite side or be designed to deal with the forces imposed on them. The conductors are supported by horizontal strings of conductors.

TRANSFORMER
A transformer is an electrical device that transfers energy from one circuit to another purely by magnetic coupling. Relative motion of the parts of the transformer is not required for transfer of energy. Transformers are often used to convert between high and low voltages, to change impedance, and to provide electrical isolation between circuits.

TRANSFORMER 132kV/33kV

TRANSFORMER 33kV/11kV

Electrical transformers are used to "transform" voltage from one level to another, usually from a higher voltage to a lower voltage. They do this by applying the principle of magnetic induction between coils to convert voltage and/or current levels

In this way, electrical transformers are a passive device which transforms alternating current (otherwise known as "AC") electric energy from one circuit into another through electromagnetic induction.

TRANSMISSION LINES
A transmission line is the material medium or structure that forms all or part of a path from one place to another for directing the transmission of energy, such as electric currents, magnetic fields, acoustic waves, or electromagnetic waves. Examples of transmission lines include wires, optical fibers and coaxial cables.

coaxial cables.

SUBSTATION
A substation is the part of an electricity transmission and distribution system where voltage is transformed from low to high and vice versa using transformers.

A substation that has a step-up transformer increases the voltage whilst decreasing the current, while a stepdown transformer will decrease the voltage while increasing the current for domestic and commercial distribution.

TRANSMISSION OPERATION
TNB remains a major player in electricity generation and distribute the electric to premises and range of business activities The electricity is supplied from generator station or power station. The current of electricity from the power station will transmits to PMU through Tower Line which carried up the voltage of 132kv .

PENCAWANG MASUK UTAMA (PMU)

From the substation, electricity will be reduced to 33kV in the transformer. Electricity will then be supplied to consumers (Factories, Businesses, Houses, etc) by Distribution through overhead lines and underground cables

Trunking

Then, from the Transformer the flow of the electricity entered into PMU through Trunking or underground cables.

Control Panel in PMU

The current from Transformer which through the Trunking will be control by Control Panel in PMU.

In PMU, a room to place a battery needed for safety and security which the battery used to make sure the flow of the electricity in a good condition if any emergency case happen. The battery will be switch on in 24 hours non stop

OPERATION
The electricity will be transmitted directly to PPU after the electricity is distributed at PMU.
The purpose: to reduce the voltage and for the next distribution processes.

Reduce from 33kV to 11kV.

The 33kV currents will go thought and transformed by the transformer. Controlled by Transformer Control Panel 33kV / 11kV. Transformer will reduce the 33kV current to 11kV current. The current will be transferred to VCB for distributed to the substation.

Figure 10: Typical domestic electrical distribution system

Consumer unit (intake point for domestic building)

The consumer's power supply control unit, conveniently summarised as a consumer unit, is a rationalisation of several circuit boxes containing a switch and fuse for isolation of individual circuits.
The unit is located as close as possible to the meter, but on the inside of the building for convenient access. A two-pole main switch usually rated at 100 A controls the supply to several outgoing circuits or 'ways'. Each way is rated in amperes, the value depending on the circuit purpose.

Consumer unit

Circuit protection is by semi-enclosed rewirable fuse, cartridge fuse or miniature circuit breaker (MCB). Up to 16 ways are available for domestic use and a typical example is shown in the following figure. Within the unit are a phase or live bar between fuses and isolator and an unfused neutral bar connected to the isolator.
An unswitched earthing terminal is also provided.
