Students have visited the Sardar Sarovar Hydro-Power Plant, located at the Narmada river near Navagam, Gujarat in India. It is the largest dam and part of the Narmada Valley Project, a large hydraulic engineering project involving the construction of a series of large irrigation and hydroelectric multi-purpose dams on the Narmada river. The project took form in 1979 as part of a development scheme to increase irrigation and produce hydroelectricity. The dam's main power plant houses six 200 MW Francis pump-turbines to generate electricity and include a pumped-storage capability. Additionally, a power plant on the intake for the main canal contains five 50 MW Kaplan turbine-generators. The total installed capacity of the power facilities is 1,450 MW. Its final configuration is the second largest concrete gravity dam (by volume) after Grand Coulee Dam in the US and has the world's third largest spillway discharging capacity .The visit provided students a broad knowledge of hydro power plant, electricity generation to transmission and various other auxiliaries and systems in a power plant. With this in switchyard function of different component like LA, CBs, Isolators, Earth switch etc. As it is included in the curriculum of Power System Practice & Design, the industrial visit became effective and beneficial for them.
