Details of the generator mechanicals

In the above diagram, you can see the boiler, control valves, water pump, water pipes, water collector, and electrical generator. There's also a cross-section line, which the diagram below details.

In this diagram you can see the fins inside the boiler, to help transfer heat from the outside rock into the water, the two water 'down' pipes, and the pipe used to keep the boiler topped up. On the right is the water collector channel, which allows the hot steam to rise up to cooler areas for condensation and collection as water, to return to the start the cycle again.

Above the generators would be the water collector area, and I picture it looking a little like this -
