Excerpt: Electric power transmission or high-voltage electric transmission is the bulk transfer of electrical energy, from generating power plants to substations located near population centers. This is distinct from the local wiring between high-voltage substations and customers, which is typically referred to as electric power distribution. Transmission lines, when interconnected with each other, become high-voltage transmission networks. In the US, these are typically referred to as power grids or just the grid, while in the UK the network is known as the national grid. North America has three major grids: The Western Interconnection- The Eastern Interconnection and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (or ERCOT) grid. Historically, transmission and distribution lines were owned by the same company, but over the last decade or so many countrie...
