    is there a practical way of changing frequency of transmission.
    how is it to be achieved. (by transmission i refer to power developed by turbo-generators ~210 MW)

    in case someone wants to know why i ask,
    a simple impulse turbine without velocity compounding and pressure compounding has a theoretical speed of 30000 rpm.
    the book i use does not elaborate abt the practical difficulties of using this
    speed so i m guessing apart from mechanical considerations of turbine,
    the problems cud be of low current capacity(correct me if i m wrong)
    and hi frequency. the former isnt a problem and it can be dealt with a transformer anyways but the frequency is abt 10 times normal (in India we use 50 hz)
