Structure of the power gridNetwork types
Energy networks can be divided into different types: Single-circuit transmission lines, double-circuit transmission lines and mesh networks. A single-circuit transmission line is the simplest form. It has an energy source at the beginning of the transmission line and one or more consumers at its end. The disadvantage here is that if the transmission line is interrupted at a point, all the following consumers will be without electricity. The security of supply is increased by having more infeeds and meshing the consumers.
