Pupils of the primary school “Xhemajl Mustafa” learn how KEDS operates
Erea Blakaj, pupil of the VIII grade, on Tuesday had a school day unlike ordinary lessons. She, along with 60 other pupils of Pristina's Primary School "Xhemajl Mustafa" visited KEDS.

Therein, KEDS is building a new network for 90 families including an additional trafo, whilst the pupils have seen in practice how to build an electrical network, what are the voltage levels for which they serve and how they are transformed to lower levels, to the customer house.
"I see KEDS differently. I like a lot how distribution and supply of electricity actually operates. This adds my desire to become an engineer, "adds Erea, who besides the unique name has also a passion of learning as much as possible. Pupils’ curiosity was high, especially for security factors. They were explained by the Manager of the Maintenance Department, Ramadan Arifi and his staff, on how to set up network protectors that protect the network from external factors and people from coming to a contact with electrical discharges.
"In here, we are building the new 0.4 kV voltage network. From these poles that we are placing and from these conductors, which you are seeing being placed by KEDS employees, are supplied with electricity the customers directly. This is the end voltage level and is directly related to the surrounding houses, "Arifi told the pupils.
Pupils have also learned how KEDS and KESCO companies work in general, thus they did a special visit to the Calibration Center. There, AMR and Calibration Manager, Shukri Aliu, explained how electric meters operate, starting from their production, calibration, and placement in the houses of the customers.
