a generator of a large power plant delivers an electric power of 130mW at 22 kv AC. for transmission, this power is stepped up to 500kv by a transformer. what is the rms curret delivered by the generator? what is the rms current in the trnasmission line? by what factor the losses in the transmission line (on joule heating) are reduced by using a transformer? assume that the transformer is ideal and does not waste any power, and that transmission line is a purely resistive loads (no capacitance or inductance).

2. Relevant equations

Imax= ΔVrms/√(r^2+(xl-xc)^2)

3. The attempt at a solution
