I've long understood that voltage is stepped-up in power t-lines to decrease losses, however, I've never really understood the math reasoning behind it.
Isn't P = V^2/R the same as P = I^2*R? If so, it seems that either increasing V or increasing I would invoke the same losses... Could someone explain?
Thanks
