Oil is pumped and gas is fed to the burners of the boiler. Coal is pulverized in large mills, and the powder is mixed with air and transported by air pressure, through pipes, to the burners. The coal transport from the yard to the mills requires automated transporter belts, hoppers, and sometimes manually operated bulldozers. Two types of boilers are used in modern power plants: the subcritical water-tube drum-type and the supercritical once-through type. 2 psi. The latter operates above that pressure, at approximately 3500 psi.

The reactor core consists of fuel and control rods. Grids hold both the control and fuel rods. The fuel rods are inserted in the grid following a predetermined pattern. The fuel elements are Zircaloy-clad rods filled with UO2 pellets. The control rods are made of a silver, cadmium, and indium alloy protected by stainless steel. The reactor operation is controlled by the position of the rods. In addition, control rods are used to shut down the reactor. The rods are released and fall in the core when emergency shutdown is required.

The induced-draft fan forces the flue gases out of the system and sends them up the stack, which is located behind the boiler. This steam generator has three major systems: • Fuel system. Fuel is mixed with air and injected into the furnace through burners. The burners are equipped with nozzles, which are supplied by preheated air and carefully designed to assure the optimum air-fuel mix.
