A Data Model for an Electric Power Distribution System

Have you ever wondered how electricity gets from the power station to your home or office? In this article, we’ll look at a database model that could work for an electricity distribution system.Electricity is so widespread that we can hardly imagine life without it. The first hydroelectric power station may have been built back in 1868, but there are still plenty of innovations going on with electricity. The most attention-getting are electric cars, like Teslas or Rimacs. Other inventions may not be so shiny, but they provide serious improvements in transporting electricity (new conductor types, superconductors) and storing it (new battery types with greater capacity).
