Power transmission grid construction

Power transmission grids are classified according to different electricity voltages: 550kV, 330kV, 220kV and 110kV. Power transmission lines are used to transmit electricity to specific substations by transforming the electricity generated in power plants into high-voltage electricity. High-voltage transmission lines can ensure high capacity and a wide range of power supply; therefore, high-voltage power grid construction is emphasized. Ultra-high voltage transmission systems provide the foundation for smart power grid development. In 2014, the three major corporations of the industry constructed 1.15 million kilometers of transmission lines. It is expected that the power transmission grid construction will make up 70.0% o..
