##\frac {dS} {dt} = \frac {\dot Q} T + \dot S_{gen}##

Now I remember something my professor told me a year ago (I could never fully understand it and it keeps coming back to mind),

from his book (I tried to translate it correctly):

the rate at which entropy is generated within the system (##S_{gen}##) is always zero because, since the temperature is uniform ad constant, the effect of the heat flow is the same for every temperature of the object it's exchanging heat with.

can someone please explain it to me?

Thanks
