The station control room was situated in the turbine hall and enabled the operation of the reactors and the generating plant to be controlled from this central point and this was done through a comprehensive system of manual controls and appropriate instrumentation.

Certain automatic features were incorporated into the control system of each reactor unit together with a unique refinement which incresed convenience and econemy and permitted the remote control of the flattening absorbers which level out the power distribution across the reactor core.
