Rationale
Availability of power is the one key area where most of the Indian industry is facing problems. In India, even today, short fall of power generation is about 30 percent. Fuel supply and distribution is also an area where country is still developing smooth lines of supply. Since power and energy is required by every sector of economy, the growth in this sector is must if Indian economy grows in any sector. Many of the job opportunity in private as well as public sector are therefore waiting for students in this field. Hence, this course attempts to provide them basic knowledge of the technologies available at plant level and would also acquaint them with the latest technological advances taking place in this sector.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Identify elements and their functions of steam, hydro, diesel, nuclear, wind and solar power plants.
ii. Operate equipments of different power plants.
iii. Analyze economics of power plants and list factors affecting the power plants
iv. Determine performance of power plants based on load variations.
