Why is there a voltage drop?

The current passes through the conductor (wire) from the DC source to the first resistor; as this occurs, some of the supplied energy is "lost" (unavailable to the load), due to the resistance of the conductor. Voltage drop exists in both the supply and return wires of a circuit.
A.

What is the power loss in a transmission line?

Electricity has to be transmitted from large power plants to the consumers via extensive networks. The transmission over long distances creates power losses. The major part of the energy losses comes from Joule effect in transformers and power lines. The energy is lost as heat in the conductors.

  • How electricity is transmitted?

    The spinning turbines make the electricity, which flows into power lines and to our houses. Electricity moves through the wires very fast. The transmission lines carry large amounts of electricity to substations in cities and towns.
  • What is electricity loss?

    The term technical losses refers to part of the energy in play dissipates by unwanted effects, including energy lost by unwanted heating of resistive components (electricity is also used for the intention of heating, which is not a loss), the effect of parasitic elements (resistance, capacitance, and inductance), skin
