Experiential Learning

TRAINING ON ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DESIGN OF HIGH-RISE BUILDING

Due to the lack of available land, high-rise structures are becoming more common in today’s society as the need for commercial and residential space rises. Additionally, the need for aesthetics in urban settings, cultural significance, and status drive human aspiration to develop higher through technological advancements in structural systems.
On 3rd May 2023 Prof. P.V. Varkey the former HoD of Electrical & Electronics Engg. department took an informative class on the electrical system design of the St. Francis block, the six-storey building in the college. 25 students of S8EEE were actively participated in the class. At first, the class was on emergency switch of a high-rise building to cut-off the entire electricity in the building. Then we proceeded to the electrical room of the building. The electrical room was a pool of new knowledge to students. Different feeders were given to different floors, lifts, fire pumps and spare were given for the future expansions. The earthing of the building was explained. The generator connection and solar backup were taught during the session. Then we moved to the different types of ducts of the building. Among them, one of the most important was the fire duct. The building has an efficient firefighting system which include fire alarms, emergency switches for lifts in each floor, booster pumps etc. Also, the building has an emergency exists in both sides. The electrical duct, communication duct and UPS duct were explained in detail. After the class about ducts, the next discussion was on lifts. The lift technology and the electrical aspects of the lift were explained. After that the session comes to an end.
Prof. P. V Varkey’s class was very interesting and educational. It was a new experience to the students. Not only the electrical aspects, but also the civil aspects were also explained during the program. The entire session was excellent, and students were able to connect the theoretical material to an actual experience.
