The group of our students included future bachelors covering the 3rd or the 4th year of their studies and specializing in power engineering. As their syllabus includes such a discipline as Alternative Energy, it was interesting for them to see the 15-MW solar power station working.

When they arrived at the facility, its Chief Engineer and other members of staff showed them the photoelectric modules, the power equipment, and the control systems. The photoelectric modules produce energy as DC, which is transformed into high-voltage AC via the inverter and the step-up transformer; the distributor directs produced energy to the power supply system. Several other facilities based on renewable sources of energy are to be constructed and put into operation in Astrakhan Region in the short-term run.
