An Industrial Visit to Al Kamil Power Station

Ten students from Diploma in Electrical Engineering led by Dr. Praveen N visited Al Kamil Power Station in Sur on November 19, 2018.

The team received a warm welcome from Mr. Khalid Hamed Al-Batrami, Plant Engineer. Engr. Surya Praksh gave a broad idea about the plant and explained its technical and functional aspects. The power station at Al Kamil has three generating units. Each unit incorporates a gas turbine and an electrical generator. The turbine is coupled to the generator and both machines rotate at 3,000 revolutions per minute (or 50 Hz). The three generators produce approximately 285 megawatts of electricity. This electricity is produced at 15,000 volts, which is then transformed from 15,000 volts to 132,000 volts by the generator step up transformers. The electricity is supplied to the Oman’s 132 kV electricity grid.

The visit was very useful for the students to better understand the working of the gas power plant and also provide an opportunity to expose themselves to industrial environment.
