IT (Information Technology) CENTRE

Computers have ushered a break-through in precision, speed and efficiency in every walk of life. The IT setup is intended to make full use of this great machine which is now being extensively used in all commercial, industrial and institutional organizations.

The Two Academic blocks of the Academy are networked locally with the LAN (Local Area Network). Further hostels are the target to be added in this network. Apart from the IT Laboratory, systems are given to stenos and officers in the individual sections The IT Laboratory is highly equipped with the following hardware/software installed

Hardware Specifications:

  • Workstations-PCs.      Pentium-IV
  • Server (XEON HP Compaq Proliant)
  • Printers:
  • HP LaserJet ,HP DeskJet, Dot Matrix  
  • UPS, Scanners etc.    

  

Software Environment

  • Win 2003 Server (Licensed)
  • Win 2000 Professional for Workstations
  • LAN (Star Topology with Switches & UTP)

wea comp labInternet Connectivity

  • Broadband DSL Connection 

On revenue and billing side, WAPDA has switched over to computer since long. But as this machine is swallowing every nook and corner of engineering with the fundamental knowledge of 

computers, some exclusive IT Courses for SEs./Directors/ Sr. & Jr. Engineers started in 1996. These Courses included

  1. Computer For Managers for S.Es/Directors /R.Es.
  2. Internet/Email Usage for S.Es/Directors/R.Es.
  3. Microsoft Office for Senior/Junior Engineers
  4. Internet/Email Usage for Senior/Junior Engineers.
  5. DBMS (Data Base Management System) For Senior/Junior Engineers.
  6. Web Page Designing For Senior/Junior Engineers.
  7. Pre-Promotion mandatory Computer Course for Stenos Grade-II.

The above courses had been very successfully conducted for almost 08 years till 2004. Total 300 Officers and 150 Stenographers were trained during this period. But in 2004 these courses were abandoned by Authority. Considering the significance of Information Technology, the participants of every course are scheduled to attend IT section for 4/5 days. Moreover, the IT Lab. remains open till 8:00 PM daily to facilitate the trainees to complete their practical assignments/ syndicate reports and web browsing/downloading etc.

The main features of their session in the IT lab. are the following.

  1. Computer Hardware including CPU, peripherals, memory and input/output devices.
  2. Computer Software and number system.
  3. Computer Operating System including MS-DOS, MS-Windows.
  4. Memory management techniques.
  5. Hands on Microsoft Office (MS-Word, MS-Excel, MS-PowerPoint, MS-Outlook etc.)
  6. Data Management and Data-base System.
  7. Internet and E-mail Usage

It is proposed that at some later stage the course will cover Computer aided studies of Electrical Power System including representation of transformers, transmission lines synchronous generators, transient behavior of synchronous machines, equal area criterion of stability, power system and load flow analysis, load prediction and demand forecasting etc.

Software Package like AUTOCAD are also to be started gradually. The main purpose is to familiarize WAPDA Engineers with the modern computers and their applications.
