What is needed to produce electricity? We look at a data model that can organize the power production process.In the electric power distribution system article , we discussed a data model for an electric power distribution system. We focused on how the electricity was provided to customers via the transmission grid and the local transmission grid. Due to space constraints, we treated the production process as a black box. Today, we’ll look inside this black box, discussing what kind of model could store details about electrical production facilities, owners, energy produced, and related costs.
