• # question_answer Electric power is transmitted over long distances through conducting wires at high voltage because [MP PET 1994] A)            High voltage travels faster B)            Power loss is large C)            Power loss is less D)            Generator produced electrical energy at a very high voltage

Power loss in transmission ${{P}_{L}}=\frac{{{P}^{2}}R}{{{V}^{2}}}$ Þ ${{P}_{L}}\propto \frac{1}{{{V}^{2}}}$
