Once heated, the oil is pumped to a centrally located power block, where it flows through heat exchangers. The steam produced by the heat exchangers is used to drive a high-pressure turbine and a low-pressure turbine both connected to an electricity generator. The steam turbines depressurize high-energy steam, thus converting thermal energy into mechanical energy which is used to run the generator. Then, performed by the induction of electromagnetic forces in a conductor, the generator converts that mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Once the exhaust steam leaves the turbines, it passes through the condenser to condensate back into water and to be re-circulated to start again the cycle.
