The unit connected to the grid at 2 am EDT (0600 GMT) after being shut since August 28, SCE&G spokesman Patrick Flynn said. It was operating at 30% of capacity early Friday, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in its daily reactor status report.

Summer shut automatically August 28 after a fault in a lightning protection circuit in the main transformer, the company said in a report to the NRC August 29. The fault caused the generator and turbine to go offline, causing an automatic trip of the reactor, SCE&G said.

The unit had been operating at 100% of capacity August 28 before the incident, NRC said.

There was no impact on the health and safety of the public from the incident, which occurred on the non-nuclear side of the plant and was not weather-related, Flynn said.
