In order to get in touch with practical application , IAS VJEC SBC conducted an industrial visit to ‘SARK CABLE PVT LTD’ Palakkad .From there we observed the industrial procedures  dealt  with the processes in making cables required for different purposes in electrical field. The students were divided into two batches. Each batch was guided by the staff from that industry. The visit was conducted under Mr. Nikhil Valsan K, chapter advisor VJEC SBC.


IAS VJEC SBC’s Visit to Install Tech

An industrial visit was organized by IAS aiming at improving the practical application of student’s

knowledge. This journey was to ‘INSTALL TECH’ located at Palakkad. The industrial visit team was accompanied by 4 staff members- Mr. Nikhil Valsan, Mr. Jobin Rocky, Mr.Jithin and St. Ancelin of EEE department. The visit was conducted on 26th February 2014.

INSTALL TECH consists of equipments and machines that were used in big industries. There we came across switches, MCBs, ELCBs, panel boards etc. Two guides explained the working of different equipments.

The industrial visit was a great success and we gained a lot of ideas, knowledge and information of various things by this industrial visit.



The IAS VJEC SBC conducted industrial visit to EL POWER TRANSFORMERS to have a better understanding about the transformer production. The visit was held on 26th of February 2014. The industry is located at Palakkad district in Kerala. The industrial visit team was accompanied by 4 staff members. They are Mr.Nikhil Valsan, Mr. Jobin Rocky, Mr.Jithin and Sr Ancelin of EEE dept. Our group consisted of 52 students.

There students came across different machines used for testing transformer equipments namely CT testing panel, PT testing panel, high power frequency testing panel, transformer oil test kit, primary and secondary winding core in a transformer etc.      VJEC
