why we generate transmit and  distribute electrical supply 
in multiple of 11
 Question Submitted By :: Electrical-Engineering
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
400 kV and 765 kV are not the muliple of 11 kV . Hence it
is not true that the transmission voltage must be a muliple
of 11 kV.

It is the traditional voltage at which the electrical
equipments are designed and the switchgear manufacturing
companies are not doing any R&D work. They are
manufacturing the switchgear at the same standard voltage
levels as many of the clients( PGCIL,NTPC and all state
electricity boards etc.)do copy-paste in the tender
specification and they dont want to do the hectic work to
produce the new specification.

That is the only reason that transmission is done at the
predecide voltage levels. The new voltage levels will not
be the exact multiple of 11 kV as 765 kV and 400 kV are

There isn't really any electrical principle for that.
Originally Commercial Electric distribution was first done
by Edison and his Manhattan DC lighting system was opened
in September,1882.Edison took 100V as the voltage for his
incandescent lamps.( Why 100 V?Round number,safe electrical
voltgae to handle,but high enough to save copper in
conductors)But it soon became clear that at the fag end of
street the lamps were not burning well due to voltgae drop
in line.Edison had to raise the generator voltage to 110 V
( there by distribution voltage became 110V!)to take care
of the voltgae drop in line.thus it became a std in US.

the ans is form factor (FF). The form factor is 1.11 for
sine wave . while we are calculating the voltage produced by
the generator we are using form factor for the same. so all
standard voltage ratings in world are of multiples o 1.11
Is This Answer Correct ?    8 Yes 6 No
# 4
Transformer induced voltage equation contains 4.44 factor, i.e. E= 4.44*f*T*Phi
E= induced emf/phase
T= no. of turns
f= frequency
Phi= maximum flux/ pole
Since, E is proportional to 4.44 and it is in turn multiple of 11. So always transmission and distribution voltage are multiple of 11.

becoz as power is transmitted, losses does occur. so we are
providing a margine of 10% to account for this drop. i.e. if
the transmitted power is 110 units then we are receving 100
units at least.if the drop is more we are to take corrective
methods.but if the losses are well in this 10% range nothing
to worry.

Three set (each phase contain 2 cable of 400 mmsq CU XLPE AWA) of single core cables are connected to 11 KV motor of 14 MW & the switch gear supplay is taken from 11kv feeder & this supplay taken from 275 KV substation. Problem is one pair cable(L3- 2 cable ) getting very hot & gland melted and damaged in switch gear side. the other two cable haven't any more hot(ambient temp only & L3 haveing 95- 100 Degree C. The same problem happened in 275 KV substation switch gear side also where the supply taken for 11 kv switch gear. But here L2 phese cable had problem. Why it is happening like this?. The cable having temperature different at different location from gland side inthe case of 11KV feeder of 275 kv substation. why ?   2
