As a part of the industrial visit organized by ‘LUMINA’- The Electrical and Electronics engineering association, the students visited Lower Periyar Hydel Generating Station of KSEB. Lower Periyar Hydroelectric Power Plant is located at about 32 km from Kothamangalam in Idukki District. The trip started at 08:30 A.M from the college campus. All the fourth semester Electrical and Electronics students along with Mr.Thomas Felix & Ms.Priya S.Pai, Asst.Professors,EEE department participated in the One day industrial visit with great enthusiasm. On reaching there students were divided into two groups and were guided by 2 Engineers from the plant. They gave an excellent explanation about the Power generation aspects, working, valve operations, and protection aspects and so on. Lower Periyar Hydel Generating Station has a total capacity of about 180Mw, with 3 generating units each of 60 Mw capacity. As a generator was undergoing annual maintenance the students got a great opportunity to view the internal parts of an alternator. The visit was extremely beneficial for students to link the theoretical basics with the physical aspects of a real installation
