Notable among these was the Oxford system, an approach first employed in 1889
, which transmitted high- voltage DC to substations, where it was "bumped down"
to usable voltage levels via either a battery arrangement or a direct current ...
The voltages these involved were much lower than those in modern high-voltage
direct current systems, which have reemerged as a technological area of active
research and development interest to the electricity industry in the United States.
