They also visited the gas-insulated switchgear in the indoor substation. The distributed control system and data monitoring was learned by the students. They also visited the battery storage facility and the communication devices used for information exchange. The substation which steps down 33 KV supply to 415 V supply is also a part of their visit.

Apart from these, they also learned about the functions of various types of relays and circuit breakers. Additionally, they also visited the firefighting equipment and facilities in the power grid station. This enhanced the understanding of what they have studied in their course.
