Brief description / remarks: 

An Electrical Engineer with theoretical knowledge is not a complete engineer, practical knowledge is much important to develop and apply engineering skills. Electrical & Electronics Engineering Department of Mandsaur University, Mandsaur had organized Gandhi Sagar Hydroelectric Power Station, Mandsaur (M.P.) on 15th February 2022. A total of 15 students and 2 faculties from the department visited the Power station. 

The purpose of this Industrial visit was to provide an exceptional prospect for all the students to interact and know more about Power generating station environment. The objective was to help the students to create a practical outlook on the field of power production and transmission.

Mr. Purushottam Gupta, SE Plant, explained the full working cycle of electrical power production from water storage, working of turbine and generator, electricity generation, and transmission. Students visited several sections (turbine, generator, Control rooms, Transformers, Bus-bars, CT, PT, Circuit Breakers, relay, Lightning Arresters, Wave Trap and outgoing supply system, etc.) and other necessary instruments in the power plant.

It was an informative, interesting, and successful industrial visit for the students of Electrical Engineering and Diploma courses.


The visit was very fruitful as students observed each of the energy flow stages used in the power plant, starting from water storage/dam to produced power output section. Students collected very important matter-of-fact information which is not offered in books and other literature.
