    • Industrial visit provides students a practical exposure to product design and development that happen in an industry. Under VIDYUTH forum an “Industrial Visit to Schneider Electric” for VI semester EEE students was organized. Group of 60 students along with faculties Ms.Syama S. and Ms. V. Sailaja, visited Schneider Electric in Electronic city on 3rd March 2016. The students were explained about a Solar Inverter in the Galaxy Series of Inverters. This is an inverter which would work only if it senses that the grid voltage is as rated and that there is no fault in the transmitted power or when there is sufficient amount of sunlight to produce a DC voltage within its operating range, else it remains dormant. When it is operating, it synchronizes its output with the grid frequency and feeds it. Overall, this was a highly informative industrial visit. Students learnt about the company as a global leader in its various fields of specialization, various safety practices gave a visual and practical insight into the various power electronic devices used in the assembled products and their testing.
