Generation
Power is created, or produced, by the turning of turbines. In most power plants, these turbines are turned by pressurized steam. The steam is made by the blazing of coal or other fossil fills in monstrous boilers. On account of hydroelectricity, the power of surging water turns the turbines.

Transmission
Once the turbines produce the power, its voltage is altogether expanded by passing it through venture up transformers. At that point the power is directed onto a system of high-voltage transmission lines fit for effectively transporting power over long separations.

Appropriation/ Distribution
At the electric appropriation substation that serves your home, the power is expelled from the transmission framework and passed through venture down transformers that bring down the voltage. The power is then exchanged onto your nearby electric community's system of conveyance lines and conveyed to your home. There, the power's voltage is brought down again by a circulation transformer and passed through your electric meter into your home's system of electric wires and outlets.
