Been awhile since I worked in the generation industry.

Can someone tell me a typical electrical output from a nuclear generating 
station (voltage / current).  I seem to recall from my power plant days that the 
voltage was relatively low (several kV), but the current was very high.  This 
was stepped up to very high voltage for transmission.  I can't recall typical 
output levels, however.
