The ramp in front lifts the coal to the pulverizer where it is crushed before being injected into the boiler and burned. Plant operators must be careful to not allow the spontaneous combustion of coal while it is stored in the yard. Nuclear Power Plants In nuclear power plants such as the one shown in Figure 2-12, a controlled nuclear reaction is used to make heat to produce steam needed to drive a steam turbine generator. All nuclear plants in the United States must conform to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s rules and regulations.

The other three phase leads are brought out of the generator separately for external system connections. The neutral is often grounded to the station ground grid for voltage reference and stability. Grounding the neutral is discussed later. Winding 1 Winding 1 Winding 3 Winding 2 To Load Neutral Winding 2 Winding 3 Figure 2-7. Delta and wye configurations. To Load 22 GENERATION WYE AND DELTA STATOR CONNECTIONS Electric power plant generators use either wye or delta connections. The phase leads from the generator are connected to the plant’s step-up transformer (not shown yet) where the generator output voltage is increased significantly to transmission voltage levels for the efficient transportation of electrical energy.

There is no smoke stack! SCRAM. A reactor SCRAM is an emergency shutdown situation. Basically, all control rods are driven into the reactor core as rapidly as possible to shut down the reactor to stop heat production. A SCRAM occurs when some protective device or sensor signals the control rod drive system. Some typical protective signals that might initiate or trigger a SCRAM include a sudden change in neutron production, a sudden change in temperatures inside the reactor shell, sudden change in pressures, or other potential system malfunctions.
