The Enhancement of Mains power system for Homes and Small Business is critical. The population is more now and the use of electricity for more appliances becomes inevitable, this makes power shortages imminent.
Power Electronics & Solar Energy
The power to Homes can be distributed by two types of phase lines (live), a common neutral and the usual earth. High Phase is for Heaters and Motors and some lighting too. This phase can be shut down on power failure, load management or over use. The other is the Green Energy line, a low current phase which never fails! It is used only for lighting and small and light electronic appliances. It is a limited energy line.
is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services."
That means, so much kWhr for a month, beyond which the line will trip off for the month. This Green Line is augmented by solar, wind or tidal electricity. That way this Green Line is Uninterrupted, but Energy Limited. This will bring a sense of responsibility on the consumer, who will plan the usage of his Green Power Line carefully.
The other High Phase raw line can go off due to Black-out and Brown-outs, when there is a shut down or load balancing. This can also be energy limited at a higher threshold, depending on the number of people in the small business or home. Big Companies have their own Mini Power stations to manage the Power problems, Here also a Green Line can be provided in addition to the mini power stations.
The sensible and frugal, energy consumer can depend on his Green Line to manage his office or home, with no interruption of power. All Home users, Commercial Establishments, Factories and Companies have to become responsible, frugal and austere in the consumption of both electricity and fossil fuels. This not only saves the costs for the company, but the society (read customers) which is the environment they depend on, is also sustained.
Happy Healthy People means more Customers/Consumers, that implies Economic Growth and a Vibrant/Resilient Stock Market.
