Industrial Visit of B. Tech Third Year Mechanical Engineering Students
B. Tech Third year (2014-18 Batch) students of Mechanical Engineering went for an industrial visit to Vijjeswaram Gas Turbo Power Station (VGTPS), Vijjeswaram. VGTPS is the first gas based power plant to be set up in Andhra Pradesh and in South India. The plant has a total installed capacity of 272 MW (Unit-I: 100 MW and Unit-II: 172 MW). The students visited various sections of Unit-I namely Compressor, Combustion system and the Turbine. The visit was very much beneficial to the students as it correlates with some of the contents of the subject "Thermal Engineering-II", which they study in the current semester.
The students sincerely thank Sri P. Srinivas (Control Engineer), Sri Suryanarayana (Asst. Engineer) and Sri Prashanth (Jr. Engineer) for accompanying them during the visit and for sharing their valuable knowledge, experience and for enlightening the students about the operation of the power plant. Department faculty members Dr. N. Naga Krishna, Sri Ch. Bhanu Prakash, Sri K.V.G Rama Seshu and Sri. M. Rahguraman accompanied the students.
