Co-ordinator’s Statement

The students had the opportunity to explore every section of the power plant, including the Solar panel, Inverter unit, Transformer unit, and grid connection. This hands-on experience enabled them to grasp the concepts of solar energy, photovoltaic cell functionality, Solar panel operation, DC to AC conversion using the Inverter unit, voltage step-up via the Transformer unit, and energy distribution through a grid connection. Additionally, they can now estimate the land, size, and cost required for establishing a solar power plant for both domestic and commercial purposes.
