“What is the framework that powers our infrastructure?”

 

A great proportion of our modern infrastructure is contingent upon electricity for operation. However, what exactly is the fundamental framework behind all of it? Well, let’s take a close look. We know that we can simplify the course of electricity into 3 components: generation of power (through means such as solar panels and wind turbines), transmission of power (with means like HVDC), and distribution of power(using machines like transformers and grid tied inverters). If any framework has these three components, then it can be classified as an electric power system. The most famous example of an electric power system is the grid, which permeates nearly every aspect of our daily lives.
