Answer :

Interconnected power systems are those which connect different geographic regions. In Australia we have a National Electricity Grid which connects 6 states. Transfers of power occur between the states depending on the size of the interconnector. For example, 1000MW transfer is possible between two states. If one state has a power supply shortage problem then the other state can send its supply interstate. The power generation companies in the state with excess power can make more profit from this.National-Electricity-Market-Fact-Sheet.pdf (0,9 MB)
