Historical Context:
A coal burning electrical generating plant is a complex interaction of air, water, heating, and cooling systems. Exact detail models such as this are used prior to the actual construction of a full-sized plant to check and improve the relationships between these various systems. This model was built as part of the development plans for the James H. Cambell Unit 3 generation plant owned by Consumer Powers (Energy) Company.
