What is Electricity?
Electricity is energy
transported by
the motion of electrons
**We do not make electricity, we
CONVERT other energy sources into
electrical energy**
Conversion is the name of the game

some power plants in
the Philippines map.

which the power plant
belongs.

generating station, transmission station
and residential areas.
Differentiate between a step-up
transformer and a step down transformer
Identify specific areas where step-up
transformer and step down transformer
are utilized

## Generation and Transmission of

Electricity to Household Consumption

## Generation and Transmission of

Electricity to Household Consumption

## 1. Steam is generated at the electricity

plant by the burning of fossil fuels- or at
a nuclear or hydroelectric plant.

## 2. The steam powers a turbine w/c spins a

huge magnet inside a copper wire. Heat
energy converts to M.E. which then
converts to E.E. in the generator

## Generator- a machine that converts

mechanical energy into electrical
energy

## 3. Electricity flows from the power plant

through wires to the step up transformer.
The transformer raises the voltage so it can
travel long distance- it is raised to as high as
756,000 volts

Step-up
transformer
increases the
voltage

## 4. The electric current then runs through

the power lines to the substation
transformer where voltage is lowered to
between 2000 and 13,000 volts

## 5. Electricity is taken through the lines to a

pole transformer- or a transformer box if
underground-and voltage is lowered again to
120 or 220 or 240 volts

## 6. From there electricity comes into your

home through the service box, where your
meter is located to measure how much you
use. Wires take electricity around your
home, powering your lights and all your
other electrical appliances

Electrical Cost

## How is the cost of electrical

energy consumption computed?
Formulas to be
considered:

E= Pt

where;

P = IV where;
P= power (Watts)
I = current
(Amperes)
V= voltage (Volts)

## E =energy used (kwh)

P =power (Watts)
t =time (seconds)

## The amount of energy consumed in 1

month is obtained by subtracting the
last months reading from the total
as read from an electric meter.

Sample Problem # 1
All the computers in the ICT room are in use
for 5 hours everyday and dissipate 8.3 Kw.
How much energy is used in a day?
Given: P = 8.3 Kw
t = 5 hours
Find : Energy used

E = Pt
= ( 8.3 Kw ) ( 5 hrs )
E = 41.5 kWh

Sample Problem # 2
How much does it cost to operate a 400 W
television for 8 hours if electrical energy costs
6.88 pesos per kWh ( which includes both the
generation and transmission charges)
E = Pt
Given: P = 0.400 kW
= ( 0.400Kw ) ( 8 hrs )
t = 8 hours
E = 3.2 kWh
Find : cost to
operate

## Cost = (3.2kWh) (6.88

pesos/kWh
Cost = 22.02 pesos

## Example rice cooker 1 liter

E=PxT
= 450watts x 1.5 hrs/day
Convert 450W to kW
Since 1kW = 1,000W
P= 450W x 1 kW/1000W = 0.45kW
T = 1.5hrs/day x 30days/month = 45hrs/month
E= P x T
E = (0.45kW) ( 45Hrs)

E= 20.25 kWh/month

## Energy used= Power(W) x

E=(kWh) 1kW = 1000 watts

Time(s)

## Activity on Electrical Consumption

1. An electric fan that draws
ANSWERS:
4.5 A current is connected
to a 220-V source, how
1. P=IV
much power does it
= 900 Watts/
produce?
0.9 kW
2. If a 100-W light bulb is
used for 8 hours each day
2. 16 kWh( P5)
for 20 days in a month.
= 80 pesos
What will be the cost of the
consumed energy?
( 5 pesos /kWh )

## How does magnetism produce

electricity?
Most energy sources such as
oil, diesel, heat from the
earths interior are used to
make turbines work, which
are then connected to a
device called a generator
which converts mechanical
energy into electrical energy.

Activity 3 LIGHT ME UP
Objectives:
Build a model of a simple generator
Discuss how electricity is generated from
the interaction between coils and magnets
Relate the motion of a simple electric
generator to the motion of an actual
generator being used in a real-life electric
power plant.

Materials
magnet
coil of wire
LED light
Wooden stand

Guide Questions:
1. Why did the LED light up when the
magnet is turned around the axis?
2. Why is it possible to produce
electricity without an energy
source?
3. In electric power plants, turbines
are connected to generators which
are composed of magnets and coils.
How are turbines used to produce
electricity?

Answers:
1. The LED light up because of the current
induced in the coils of copper wire due to
the changing magnetic field.
2. A changing magnetic field induces current
in coils of wire. This is also known as
electromagnetic induction.

Answers:
Turbines are connected to
generators consisting of large
magnets and conductors.
Turbines are rotated
either mechanically or by
means of steam from boiling
water which is heated by the
fuel source. Turbines produce
a changing magnetic field
inside the generator which in
turn produces electricity.
