Power plants or generating stations are facilities for generating electric power, which has become essential to our present lifestyle. Electric power supports many of our daily activities, including lighting, air circulation, HVAC, TV watching, cell phones, computers, elevators, etc. The generated power is delivered using complex systems of wires, towers, underground stations, transformers, control stations, etc., to consumer sites such as homes, apartments, stores, industry, and schools. These interconnected systems are known as grids.
