“The greater the per capita consumption of energy in a country, the higher is the standard of living of its people”


Energy is the basic necessity for the economic development of a country. Many functions necessary to present day living grind to halt when the supply of energy stop. It is practically impossible to estimate the actual magnitude of the part that energy has played in the building up of present day civilization. The availability of huge amount of energy in the modern times has resulted in a shorter working day, higher agricultural and industrial production, a healthier and more balanced diet and better transportation facilities. As a matter of fact, there is a close relationship between the energy used per person and his standard of living. The greater the per capita consumption of energy in a country, the higher is the standard of living of its people. Energy exists in different forms in nature but the most important form is the electrical energy. The modern society is so much dependent upon the use of electrical energy that it has become a part and parcel of our life. In this chapter, we shall focus our attention on the general aspects of electrical energy.
