For PWR power plants, the steam generator (SG) provides a dynamic link between the reactor and the turbine generator. A steam generator typically consists of Inconel tubes anchored at intervals with stainless steel support plates. The primary coolant from the nuclear reactor circulates through these tubes. Heat, transferred to the secondary coolant by conduction through the tube wall, generating steam which is used for running the turbine.
