Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

Always the generating power is a multiple of form factor
1.1.

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

b'cz the form factor is RMS value /average value =1.11 and
the form factor is the pure sine wave.

Answer / lokesh choudhary

Becoz of form factor 1.11
so we do transmission on multiple of 11
so that we can decrease the losses

Answer / prateek gupta

we all know that form factor = rms value/peak value
the power which is generated at 11 kv it is a multipication
of formfactor that is 1.1.
also the insulation losses is also minimum at 11 kv.

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

Answer / nikhil anand

Due to form factor
Rms value/avg value gives form factor 1.11
So we generate power at multiple of 11.

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

aBOVE answers are correct and also the insulator disk are
designed to bear 11KV so in multiple of that we can decide
the transmission voltage for insulator string conviniency

 Is This Answer Correct ? 12 Yes 13 No

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

we generate electricity in the multiple of form factor
becausehe effect of ac current should be as dc current

 Is This Answer Correct ? 2 Yes 5 No

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

the transformer stepup and step down ratio should be a whole
number so tat we go for multiples of eleven.for example
11kv/440v means the ratio will be 25:1.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 0 Yes 4 No

Why we generate power at multiple of 11 i.e 11kv,33kv etc...

we generate power at multiples of 11 because there is 10%
loss in transmission of power over transmission line.i.e.
for every 100V, 10V is lost in losses. thus we increment it
10% and then send from the sending end such that we may
