Introduction On 21st and 22nd December 2016, an Industrial visit was organized for S3 EEE to Mattupetty Dam and Travancore Cochin Chemicals (TCC). The dam was constructed under the Pallivasal Hydro-electric project in the late 1940s, for the purpose of water conservation and power generation and TCC is a heavy chemical industry engaged in the manufacture and marketing of Caustic Soda, Chlorine and allied chemicals. 40 students including 4 staffs Joseph of Electrical and Electronics Department participated for the industrial visit. Purpose of visit The main purposes of the industrial visit are listed below 1. The purpose of industrial visit to the Mattupetty Dam is to understand the power demand management done at the power house, water conservation and power generation 2. The purpose of industrial visit to the TCC is to understand the role of an Electrical Engineer in a chemical industry Name of industry visited 1. Mattupetty Dam 2. Travancore Cochin Chemicals (TCC). Industrial activities MATTUPETTY DAM The dam of Mattupetty is a storage concrete gravity dam. The dam was constructed under the Pallivasal Hydro-electric project in the late 1940s, for the purpose of water conservation and power generation. Now the dam is a vital source of electricity generation in Munnar and also a haven for many wild animals and birds due to its constant water availability. Travancore Cochin Chemicals (TCC) Travancore Cochin Chemicals Limited, Udyogamandal is a State Public Sector Undertaking owned by Government of Kerala. Reflecting the quality policy of commitment and excellence TCC has a good track record of profitable operation and healthy industrial relations. A heavy chemical industry engaged in the manufacture and marketing of Caustic Soda, Chlorine and allied chemicals, TCC is accredited with ISO 9001: 2008 certification. The process of manufacture of caustic soda chlorine and hydrochloric acid through ion exchange membrane process involves several steps. The parameters which are mainly measured in this process are level pressure, flow, temperature, pH. The processes are:- 1. Primary purification 2. Secondary purification 3. Electrolysis 4. Chlorine treatment 5. H2 treatment and HCL analysis 6. Continuous caustic fusion 7. Soda bleach preparation Primary purification consists of 3 stages. They are saturation, precipitation and filtration. Electrical section in TCC In TCC there are two feeders for the power plant operation. One feeder is from the kalamassry. The main equipments which is present in the electrical section are, Line isolator: isolator can be rewritten as Isolator is a manually operated mechanical switch which separates a part of the electrical power. Isolators are used to open a circuit under no load. Its main purpose is to isolate one portion of the circuit from the other and is not intended to be opened while current is flowing in the line. Isolators are generally used on both ends of the breaker in order that repair or replacement of circuit breaker can be done without and danger. Capacitor Bank: The TCC mainly makes use of several Induction Machines. So this results in the lagging power factor. One of the main requirements while using electrical power is to keep the power factor as unity. So to compensate this lagging power factor capacitor banks are used. SF6 circuit breaker: A circuit breaker in which the current carrying contacts operate in sulphur hexafluoride or SF6 gas is known as an SF6 circuit breaker. The supply voltage is 25 MVA/110/11 kv. And also for their industrial activities they are using a 12 phase transformer. Location Mattupetty dam Mattupetty Dam, near Munnar in Idukki District, is a storage Concrete Gravity dam built in the mountains of Kerala, India to conserve water for hydroelectricity.
