Significant changes are expected in the generation and transmission network that makes up South Africa's electrical power system in the coming decades. From the current installed base of under 40 GW, Eskom plans to deliver an additional 16 GW installed capacity by 2017, and ultimately to double its capacity to 80 GW by 2026. This also calls for an expansion of the existing transmission system, including an additional 3200 km of 765 kV transmission lines. More
