BURNER SWITCH The burner switch is labeled as such and is located next to the keyed master switch. The burner switch powers the automatic gas valve and ignition controls. A green indicator light, located directly above the burner switch, will light when the burner switch is selected to the on position and power is available to the switch. LOAD SWITCH The load switch functions as a generator load disconnect switch. LOAD RHEOSTAT CONTROL KNOB The load rheostat control knob is connected in series with the load toggle switch and generator DC output terminals. It provides a source of variable generator load. AMP METER The amp meter indicates generator load conditions.

STEAM ADMISSION VALVE The steam admission valve controls the steam flow rate to the steam turbine. PRE-START The TA will complete a pre-start procedure prior to the lab period. The pre-start procedure includes safety and operability checks to ensure that the equipment is functioning properly. BOILER FILL Fill the boiler according to the following procedure: 1.Verify that the boiler is empty 2.Fill the graduated cylinder with 6000mL of distilled water 3.Connect the fitting on the end of the plastic tube attached to the graduated cylinder to the port on the lower, middle, back side of the boiler. The fitting should snap into place 4.Set the graduated cylinder on top of the condenser tower 5.Drain 500mL of distilled water into the boiler by operating the valve at the base of the graduated cylinder 6.Record the water level indicated on the sight-glass attached to the boiler 7.Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all 6000mL of water have been drained into the boiler. Record the total volume of water within the boiler, and the corresponding water level each time. The data recorded during this step will be used to develop a correlation relating boiler water level to the remaining volume of water within the system. This correlation may be found by entering the data into Excel, and obtain a curve fit of the data. The resulting function can be used to calculate the total volume of water consumed during a steady-state run. If the duration of the run is known, the mass flow rate can be computed. ̇

Wait for 30 seconds. This will allow the lines to purge. Then turn the burner switch to the "off" position and immediately back on (this step
