Standard power=generator values apply. Using this tag is optional and may be done by mappers who know precisely the structure of the power plant.


  • A solar thermal collector is producing steam useful to a turbine which produce electricity. The thermal collector is intermediate (with generator:output:steam=*) instead of turbine which is output.
