This collection contains manuals
published by the Nuclear Training Center of Westinghouse Electric Corporation on the
thermodynamics of nuclear power plants. These manuals were part of a training program
provided by Westinghouse for the education of Southern California Edison employees who
presumably worked for the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
The Westinghouse Electric Company provides fuel, services, technology, plant design, and
equipment for the commercial nuclear electric power industry. It also offers training
programs and other educational services in the area of nuclear technology. In the 1980s
Southern California Edison employees who worked with nuclear electric power used the
Westinghouse training manuals in this collection. Southern California Edison operates one
nuclear electric power plant, the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).
