Eluvaitheevu Hybrid Power Plant Field Visit

Students of 2013/E and 2014/E who are specializing in the fields of Electrical & Electronic Engineering visited Eluvaitheevu hybrid power station, which has the wind power generation as well as the solar power plant in a small scale. This power plant is operated islanded mode to supply this small island.

This visit was arranged by the subject coordinator Dr. V. Cynthujah under the course “Renewable Energy”. The visit covered the power generation through renewable energy technologies, how they are coordinated between power plants and the energy demand and supply for the islanded area. The operating process of the power generation, fault recovery and maintenance were explained by the staff at the power station. This real environment experience was very valuable opportunity for students to relate the theoretical knowledge in the real world applications.
