Misty Turbines Jan 1, 2005
I've always referred to this as the Turbine Hall (both in this station, and in others like the Lakeview Generating Station and Hearn Generating Station). However, I had it wrong all along and one reader was recently kind enough to point out the issue.
This Is a Generator, Not a Turbine
That's right. We're looking at the top of the system — the generator, which generates electricity. The bottom of the system — where the water rushing down the penstock causes blades to turn — is the turbine. The turbine is connected to the generator with a shaft.
Now, I won't be fixing all the URLs related to this page and the others in this section quite yet. But rest assured, I now know the difference. (Kind thanks to John S.!)
