Transformers in a national grid:

Electricity is transmitted at high voltages so we reduce the current, meaning we reduce the heat loss.

Power stations ----> Step up transformer ----> Pylons ----> Step down transformer ----> consumers

Heat is proportional to current squared

Power is transmitted at high voltages to reduce heat loss. When…
