Columbus Power Grid
The Columbus region power grid is served by American Electric Power’s (AEP) regional network comprised of multiple 345kV & 138kV transmission lines and a massive 765kV transmission backbone system that is connected to generation plants. Many of these incoming transmission lines connect to a 345kV transmission system that encircles the Greater Columbus Area. From this “wheel”, transmission lines act as “spokes” routing to the area’s substations. If a transmission line serving a substation goes down, circuit breakers isolate the troubled line section and reroute the power automatically to the substation through another transmission line
