Description

Electric power from the main generator is produced at 13,800 Volts and is then stepped up to 115,000 Volts for export to the electric grid. The generator circuit breaker, generator step-up transformer, high-voltage circuit breakers, and associated instrumentation are all standard components of a conventional electric generation plant. Like any other generation plant on the order of 100 MW, control parameters, protective relay settings, and the sequence of generator operation are closely coordinated with grid operators or the electric utility to ensure the stability and security of the electric grid is maintained and plant equipment is not damaged.
