Corporate Resource Cell (CRC) at Rai University, Ahmedabad organized an industrial visit on 11th February, 2015 at Kalpataru Power Transmission. The visit was conducted keeping in mind the students of Diploma and B.Tech Electrical Engineering at Rai University. Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd., is an EPC Contracting Company with a diversified portfolio in power transmission & distribution, Cross Country Pipeline, Oil & Gas Field Surface Facilities, Civil Infrastructure projects and Power Generation. The students were briefed and guided around the premises by one of the senior members of the supervisory staff of the organization.
The objective of the Industrial Visit was to understand the Design of overhead transmission line with equal supports, Effect of voltage on transmission efficiency and process for how to improve efficiency, improvement in line regulation and design of Transmission Tower which are able to support the volume of conductor materials and selection of economical transmission voltage.
There was an excellent synergy of theory and practical knowledge of the generation transmission and distribution of electrical power and a practical display of the theory of Design of Transmission Tower which includes improvement in Transmission efficiency and distribution of power which struck a balance between the students’ understanding of the practical relevance of their theoretical know-how. During the detailed visit, the students were made familiar with production of various parts of power transmission line, drilling process of conductors based on control system with the help of DSP controller, zinc coating process on rods at 240◦C, designing of overhead transmission lines & its various apparatus, designing of transmission line rods, DSP controller programming & it’s applications and finally the galvanizing of conducting rods to protect from rust. It was a very fruitful visit.
