Steam

You are here

Steam is generated at a high pressure of 650 pounds, and this is used to operate the turbine to produce electricity. Steam is taken out of the turbine 20 pounds of pressure and used again to heat the buildings in the winter and cool them in the summer. When there is no heating or cooling required, the residual heat in the steam must be dissipated through the cooling towers in the roof of the power house.
