Al Ain Men’s College Electrical Engineering students visited the Emirates Simulation Academy, Abu Dhabi.
On arrival they were introduced to one of the simulators installed – the combined cycle gas turbine. This visit was aimed to complete the knowledge acquired in their MTRX 264 course (PLC Programming I).
The students had a chance to get full control of the generator process: identify the main components, follow the startup procedure, synchronise the generators with the main network and even respond to critical conditions which may occur.
The success of this trip demonstrates AAMC’s commitment to linking classroom activity with industry requirements. The students were so enthused that they suggested these visits should be conducted frequently during the semester.
