Transformers: Why We Need Them

Have you ever looked above at the power lines and heard a buzzing sound? Well, we can tell you with confidence there isn’t a beehive nearby! That buzzing sound you hear is the thousands of volts of energy being transported from home-to-home from your local power plant. Every electrically powered item you own, from your oven to your television, requires a certain amount of voltage to power. Without the energy from the network of power lines over your head, nothing would be able to work. But transferring your needed energy is a lot more complex than using a bunch of power lines!

Transforming High Voltage Electricity

You won’t be able to just tap into the energy from the power lines or from your local power plant. Why? The energy is too strong and too high of voltage in order to control and use. If you were able to tap into this amount of energy, your appliances and anything else you use energy for, would immediately explode. Most appliances only need 100-200 volts of energy to work, yet the power lines can transport hundreds of thousands of volts.
Power lines carry this much energy for two reasons. The first is that a lot of energy is needed to power whole communities. Second, and the most important reason, is that energy like electricity travels in interesting ways. Due to the chaos of electrons, when less volts are passed on power lines, the electrical current is higher and more energy is lost. Because of this, the power lines are so aggressively charged with power to lower the electricity current and expend less energy in order to power your city.

Transformers From Nutech Industries INC.

As a society, we need transformers in order to control the amount of energy we are taking from our main power sources. As stated, too much power could cause catastrophic damage, and too little power would not allow businesses to function.
For a business, a transformer can be an important item to ensure that all electronics are running smoothly. If you are interested in this type of technology, contact Nutech today or visit us online.
