Electricity System

Imagine your house is like a giant circuit. Electricity travels through wires, kind of like water flowing through pipes. Here's a basic rundown of how it works:

Power Plant: It creates electricity, often from things like burning fuels, wind, or sunshine.

Transmission Lines: These are like big highways that carry large amounts of electricity over long distances. Think of them as thick pipes carrying lots of water.

Transformers: Electricity needs to be adjusted to the right voltage for homes. Transformers are like special valves that control the water pressure for your house.

Distribution Lines: These are smaller lines that branch off the highways and deliver electricity to neighborhoods. Imagine them as smaller pipes bringing water closer to your house.

Your Home: Electricity enters your house through a meter, which tracks how much you use. Think of it like a water meter that measures how much water you use.

Circuit Breaker Box: This acts like a control center. It has switches that can cut off power to different parts of your house if there's a problem, kind of like a switchboard that can turn off water to different rooms.

Wires: These are the final pathways that carry electricity throughout your house, delivering it to outlets, lights, and appliances. Think of them as the smaller pipes that bring water to your sink, shower, and washing machine.

Appliances & Devices: Finally, electricity powers all your devices! Lights turn on, toasters heat up, and phones charge, all thanks to the flow of electricity.
