This primer on electric transmission is intended to help policymakers understand the physics of the transmission system, the economics of transmission, and the policies that government can and does use to influence and govern the transmission system.

This book is divided into the following chapters and an appendix. Principles of Electrical Transmission Lines in Power and Communication is a preliminary study in the transmission of electricity, which particularly discusses principles common to all electrical transmission links, whether their functions be communication or bulk power transfer.
