- power-distribution - 31 questions.
Utility-scale power distribution, i.e. electricity grids, substations, overhead lines.
- power-transmission - 106 questions.
High-voltage bulk power transmission over long distances of 100km or more. Usually at voltages 132kV, 220kV, 330kV and above. (For lower voltages such as 11kV, 22kV, 33kV, 66kV, see [power-distribution].)
I've three problems here:
'Distribution' and 'transmission' overlap greatly, so I end up dual-tagging a lot of questions as both 'power-distribution' and 'power-transmission'.
How do I interpret a current transformer class like "10 P150 F20"would be a question in both
The number of questions in the
transmissiontags probably doesn't justify them being separate entities.
There's no tag to apply to power electrical things which are not transmission or distribution. Example: power electrical design, as in Why are the letters U, V and W used in AC motors to represent the windings? .
I would like to propose a new tag, power-engineering.
It would also cover power-electrical questions not previously included.
Proposed tag description:
Power electrical engineering. Includes industrial electrical engineering (i.e. motors, switchboards), transmission and distribution (poles, wires, transformers, grids) and generation.
