Electric power transmission or "high voltage electric transmission" is the bulk transfer of electrical energy, from generating power plants to substations located near to population centers. While the local wiring between high voltage substations and customers are referred to as electricity distribution. Transmission lines, when interconnected with each other, become high voltage transmission networks that powers and control the “power grids".
Many components go into the transmission and distribution of energy. From the power plant, interconnected to renewable sources of energy generation, large scale battery systems, and with the overlying energy communication and control networks; the requirement to ensure reliability, safety, performance and security is of an utmost need to manage the “Smart Grid”. Utility companies and Electric component manufacturers can depend of NTS to provide them with the engineering skills and the expertise to evaluate and test products and components to meet the various standards.
