Gurgaon, India (PressExposure) September 04, 2008 -- Electricity is by no means a purely human invention, and may be observed in several forms in nature, a prominent manifestation of which is lightning. But is an extremely flexible form of energy. In fact, electricity has become a prime source of energy for the very existence of mankind as no activity, movement or development is possible without this energy. It is also a strong indicator for measuring the economic grown of a country.
Most of the existing and upcoming coal based power capacity is coming up in proximity of coal mines and huge volume of power has to be evacuated to the consuming areas across the country. Electricity is usually transmitted over long distance through overhead power transmission lines.
A transmission grid is a network of power stations, transmission circuits, and substations. Electricity is usually transmitted over long distance through overhead power transmission lines.
Heart of any transformer is the core, which is made of laminates of electrical steel. In some devices, some of the power is lost in the core due to hysteresis and eddy currents losses. However to limit or reduce losses, core laminated magnetic cores are made of thin, insulated silicon steel sheets either grain oriented and grain non oriented steel . India has limited capacity of producing CRNGO steel at SAIL RSP and TKES. As a result most of the steel is imported from overseas.
Considering the mega plans in power sector, consumption of electrical steel is bound to go up exponentially. This would also be propelled by general development of
infrastructure sector and industrialization, which require huge amount of devices such as motors etc.
We have listed the contact details of the electrical steel users in India as "Indian Electrical Steel Users Directory 2008", which would serve as a readymade source of information for steel makers and traders worldwide
