Students had an opportunity to see the transmission and distribution power in the BijniPower substation. Students became practically aware of the theories which they studied in their curriculum. The Engineers at the station expose us to many of the relevant terminologies and systems which were actually new to the students to see them the first time in practical. The Control labs were the part of Data Acquisition Systems to which students became familiar with and could observe and record every second data of the complete system.
