Secondary System Steam Generators – 3 per reactor vessel – 63 ‘ tall Turbine and Generator – Steam pressure applied 785 psi – 1,800 rpm – Generators connected to shaft produce 693 Mwatts Condenser – Condenses steam after used returns to steam generator at 13,00 gallons per minute
Tertiary System Water from the canals cools steam running through turbines and condenses it Enters plant at a rate of 156,000 gallons per min. Leaves plant at same rate Takes 48 hours to travel 150 miles of canals to cool off Pumps water back to the steam generators 13,000 gallons per min.
