The Department of Physics in Association with IIC and IEDC conducted training cum installation of solar panel street light on 24th February, 2023 as part of National Science Day celebrations. The programme began at 11.00 AM with the training session on solar panel assembling at the BSc. Physics Lab. The training was conducted by the resource person from VM Trades Power Solutions. The resource person gave the students a detailed outline of the major components of a solar powered system. He also discussed the differences in the connections for off-grid and on-grid systems.
Post the lunch break, the students got to witness the installation of the solar powered street light in the campus. The location for installing the light was chosen based on the need and suitability of the place. The area should be one which receives ample sunlight without shade and obstacles. The students helped the technicians to install the street light. 12 students participated in the programme.
