|The high pressure turbine consists of a
very small unit located on the housing, sometimes called the "dog house". Steam
pipes are seen coming up from the floor to admit steam through the stop and governor
valves to the turbine.
The piping visible in the overhead behind the doghouse is that which goes from the moisture separators to the low pressure turbines.
Some, but not all, power plants have windows in the turbine hall. This plant's windows look out toward a lake that provides the cooling for the condenser.
