Industrial visit at UCHI –BASSI HYDROPOWER STATION

Department of Mechanical Engineering organized one day Industrial Visit at HYDROPOWER STATION UCHI –BASSI on 18thApril, 2017 for third year students to impart practical knowledge in the subject of Fluid Machinery as well as to have on the site experience of witnessing a hydro Power Station. More than 40 students were accompanied by two faculty members Er. Hardeeep Singh and Er. Ved Raj Khullar. UCHI-BASSI Hydropower station is one of the main Hydro Electric Station of Mukerian Hydel Project which generate the 58.5 MW power. Students observed that the power house is vertical salient pole umbrella types, has three number of KAPLAN turbine rotating in clockwise direction with 166.7 rpm (rating of each units is 19.5 MW), turbine output is 27300 HP, 06 numbers of blades. Discharge and head required for the maximum power generation is 3701cusec and 22.5 meters respectively. Also students were given detailed information about the power project i.e. it comprises of 4 Power Houses. Power House No. 1 & 2 have 6 Nos (3 at each Power House) machines of 15 MW capacity each whereas Power House No.3 & 4 have 6 Nos. (3 at each Power House) machines of 19.5 MW capacity each. The total generating capacity is 207 MW of all the 12 Nos. Machines. The Mukerian Hydel Project generates electrical energy at 11 KV and after stepping up to 132 KV, the same is transmitted to Grid system at 132 KV. Power House No. I, is connected with Power House No.II and Power House No.II with PH No. III and PH No. III with PH-IV through 132 KV double circuit lines carried on towers. There are four 132 KV circuit lines for evacuation of electric energy generated, two numbers at PH-II to Jalandhar (through 132 KV Bhogpur and 132 KV Tanda circuits) and other two at PH-IV through 132 KV Sri-Hargobindpur Circuit I&II. Students were also given exposure on operation of turbines and maintenance strategies to be followed.

 

 

Industrial visit at Hydel Power station

Department of Mechanical Engineering organized one day Industrial Visit at HYDROPOWER STATION UCHI –BASSI on 10th April, 2017 for third year students to impart practical knowledge in the subject of Fluid Machinery as well as to have on the site experience of witnessing a hydro PowerStation. More than 44 students were accompanied by two faculty members Dr. Rajesh Khanna and Sh. Ved Raj. Mukerian Hydel Project is one of the main Hydro Electric Projects in the Northern Region situated in the Hoshiarpur District of Punjab.
