For this purpose the student of 4th semester Diploma visited Substation. Substation in charge (Junior Engineer) explained all the equipment like bus bar, transformer, insulator, circuit breaker etc.. End of the visit Student got the information and practical knowledge about the transmission & distribution.
Electrical 4th semester student want to know about the generation, transmission & distribution. So for this purpose we have to decide visit on Solar power plant which is located near Mervadar Tal: Upleta Dist: Rajkot. Here approximate generate 25MW by use of Solar plate. From this visit student got practical idea related Solar Power generation.
Students of Electrical Department have visited Solar power plant which is developed by state mineral and mining PSU Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC) at pandhro - Kutch. A solar power plant is based on the conversion of sunlight into electricity directly using photovoltaic (PV) solar panel.
