  1. Useful Insight on Controls for Steam Power Plansd

    4

    I worked at Ohio Edison in the relatively small power plant in Springfield, Ohio during the Summer for my first three years in college in the late 70s. This course provided much insight into the equipment and operation of the plant, something at the time I did not have a detailed understanding of. Though that plant is long gone I was able to connect much of what I saw back then as a student engineer to the information provided in this course.
