The exciters are small direct current generators that create the magnetic field in the stators of the larger alternating current generators. Shown on December 10, 1907, each exciter generator is connected to and driven by a turbine located in a turbine chamber on the opposite side of the wall. Each exciter can supply energy for up to four large alternating current generators. (MWRD photo 3816)
