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.
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).
