    Generators of 900 MW and above are required to match the unit outputs of the largest nuclear and fossil fired steam generators. Where steam and vacuum conditions permit, full speed, 3000 rev/min units are the most economic. In 1985 two 985 MW, 1158 MVA, 3000 rev/min generators were ordered from GEC Turbine Generators at Stafford for the Daya Bay nuclear power station in the Peoples Republic of Chi...

    The building of Britain's first PWR power station began in April 1987 at Sizewell. The project was subject to the closest public scrutiny on its design, safety and economical aspects. The 340-day Public Inquiry was the longest ever held in the UK. The author reports on a conference held in September 1989 which discussed progress to date. The design of the power station is discussed, and in particu... View full abstract»

    Fuses were undoubtedly the first form of protection to be used in electric circuits, and they have continued to be used in increasing numbers up to the present day. Their importance can readily be seen from the world production of fuselinks, which is currently estimated to be several thousand million per annum. The author discusses basic fuse types and their construction. Fuselink behaviour, in pa... View full abstract»

    Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing and associated waste management plant utilises 11 kV (HV) and 415 V (MV) systems in 55 substations to distribute a power demand of approximately 50 MW. Until 1985, the HV and MV distribution systems were controlled from a central control room using conventional discrepancy switches on a hard-wired mimic. During 1985, the hard-wired system was replaced with a co... View full abstract»
