Students of Green University visited Ghorashal Power Station

The final year students of the program of B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of Green University of Bangladesh took part in a day-long study tour to the Ghorashal Thermal Power Station on 15 June 2015. The prime objective of this tour was to help the students to know about power plant and its operational, maintenance and management. Twenty five (25) students including four (4) female students led by Prof. Dr. Engr. Muhibul Haque Bhuyan, Chairperson of EEE Department participated in the tour. Besides, two (2) other faculty members of the EEE Department, Engr. Robiul Hossain Md. Raffi, Lecturer and Engr. Md. Badruddoja Majumder, Lecturer also joined with the participating students. They guided the students during the day-long study tour.
Ghorashal Thermal Power Station is the biggest power plant in Bangladesh located at Polash, Narshingdi with installed generation capacity of 950 MW. It has 6 power generating units with power generation capacity ranging from 55 MW to 210 MW per unit. All the generators are run by steam turbines.
The tour comprised three parts. At first, the students went to observe the power generation units where the Engineers of the power station briefly explained the working principle of the thermal power station and then demonstrated its operation. One unit of the generator was out of order right now. So, both generator and turbines were open and students were able to observe all the opened parts and have huge practical idea about various parts of alternator and steam turbine. After that they visited the electrical control room and then they observed the mechanical control room and boiler section. At last, they observed the sub-station.
At electrical control room, the students observed many control panels, such as, control panels for 230 kV, 132 kV, 33 kV and 11 kV bus bars, switch gears, isolator control knobs, breaker operation knob, ammeter, voltmeter, frequency meter, power factor meter etc. The sub-station can be controlled properly from the control room.
Then the students went to the mechanical control room where they observed how the mechanical parameters like boiler’s flow rate, steam flow to the turbine, flame etc. is controlled. Then they observed the boiler, water treatment plant, steam turbines, governor, cooling system, economizer, super-heater, re-heater and other mechanical components of the power plant.
At last, the students observed the sub-station that is consist of several electrical equipment like power, auxiliary transformers and distribution transformers, protection devices like isolators, circuit breakers, HV cables, PTs, CTs, earthing and lightning arresters. The generation voltage is around 11-15 kV, which is converted to 132 kV or 230 kV for transmission. In sub-station, there are parallel bus bar systems available. In this sub-station, three types of breakers, such as, vacuum, SF6 and air circuit breakers, are available.

At the end of the day, students came back to Dhaka with practical experiences of power plant through this study tour. This was a very effective tour for both teachers and students. Their theoretical knowledge is supplemented with this study tour.

Green University observed Independence Day

Green University of Bangladesh arranged a discussion meeting followed by a cultural program in the seminar room of the university on 27 March at 3pm to observe the Independence Day-2012. The Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor of the University Professor Dr. Anwarullah Chowdhury presided over the meeting while prominent lawyer Barrister Rafique-Ul Huq and the Chairman of GUB Board of Trustees Mr. Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mamun were present in the program as the chief guest and the special guest respectively.
The chief guest Barrister Rafique-Ul Huq said that even after long 40 years of our independence, we have not achieved the desired goal of our Independence for which the common people of this country participated in the Liberation War. He emphasized the importance of the present generation to know about the glorious history of our Liberation War. Special Guest Mr. Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mamun said that the neighboring countries like China, India, Thailand and Malaysia have advanced so fast but we are lagging behind. Today is the time to advance our nation with new dynamism by criticizing ourselves to realize our ultimate objectives of Independence. He expects that the students of the country can play a vital role in this regard. Professor Dr. Anwarullah Chowdhury said that, the liberation war of Bangladesh was not a matter of an accident. The liberation war was the result of many socio-economic, political struggle and movements like language movement of 1952, the 6 point movement of 1966 and the mass upsurge of 1969. He opined that the liberation war was as an epic of tears and blood. He also added that no nation of the world had sacrificed so much of blood for their independence. He advised all the students of GUB to devote themselves to build the nation and to work for a happy, prosperous Bangladesh.
After the discussion, the students participated in the events like patriotic songs and recitation etc. Distinguished guests including Barrister Zafarullah Chowdhury, Deans and Chairmen from various Faculties and Departments, teachers, officials and a large number of students were also present on the occasion.

Stanford University | USA Universities

On Oct. 1, 1891, Stanford University opened its doors after six years of planning and building. In the early morning hours, construction workers were still preparing the Inner Quadrangle for the ceremonies. The great arch at the western end had been backed with panels of red and white cloth to form an alcove where dignitaries would sit.
The 2,000 seats set up in the three-acre Quad soon proved insufficient for the growing crowd. By midmorning, people were streaming across fields on foot. At half past 10, the special train from San Francisco arrived on the temporary spur that had been used during construction. As a faculty member recalled, “Hope was in every heart, and the presiding spirit of freedom prompted us to dare greatly.”
Jane and Leland Stanford established the university in memory of their only child, Leland Jr., who died of typhoid fever at 15. Within weeks of his 1884 death, the Stanfords determined that, because they no longer could do anything for their own child, they would use their wealth to do something for “other people’s” children.

The Undergraduate Program

The objective of Stanford University, Jane and Leland Stanford wrote in their Founding Grant in 1885, is "to qualify its students for personal success, and direct usefulness in life; And its purposes, to promote the public welfare by exercising an influence in behalf of humanity and civilization, teaching the blessings of liberty regulated by law, and inculcating love and reverence for the great principles of government as derived from the inalienable rights of man to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
With an approximate 5.9 to 1 student-to-faculty ratio, Stanford emphasizes close interaction with faculty. Stanford offers three undergraduate degrees – Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Sciences (B.S.), and Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (B.A.S.) – each designed to achieve balance between depth of knowledge acquired through specialization and breadth of knowledge gained through exploration. Undergraduates complete at least 180 units, including requirements for the major, writing and rhetoric requirements, one year of a foreign language and courses in the following areas:
  • Introduction to the Humanities: One course each quarter of the freshman year
  • Disciplinary Breadth: Five courses required, at least one in engineering and applied sciences, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences and social sciences
  • Education for Citizenship: Two courses in at least two of the following subject areas—ethical reasoning, the global community, American cultures and gender studies
Of the seven schools at Stanford, three award undergraduate degrees: Humanities and Sciences, Earth Sciences and Engineering. Students who wish to pursue in depth more than one field may double major—that is, complete the requirements for majors in two fields—or minor in a second field. Students also can pursue an individually designed major. Visit http://ual.stanford.edu/.

Graduate Studies

In Stanford’s first year, 1891, 39 men and 12 women from 19 states registered in graduate standing, representing one of the first opportunities for graduate study on the West Coast. Today, 8,796 students in 91 departments and programs are pursuing post-baccalaureate degrees in all seven of Stanford’s schools: Business, Earth Sciences, Education, Engineering, Humanities and Sciences, Law and Medicine. Exchange programs with the University of California-Berkeley and the University of California-San Francisco enable graduate students to take courses not offered at Stanford.
About 85 percent of Stanford graduate students receive financial assistance, aside from loans, from Stanford or external sources. About 56 percent of graduate students live on campus.
