  • Transmission systems represent the backbone of the electric energy. They support transport of electric energy from large producers (power plants) to the load centers (residential areas, manufacturing facilities, business centers or a combination thereof). Those networks are probably among the largest human-made engineering systems the transmission network in the United States covers over 300,000km of lines and is served by 500 companies (electric utilities).
