      Nuclear power, electricity generated by power plants that derive their heat from fission in a nuclear reactor. Except for the reactor, a nuclear power plant is similar to a large coal-fired power plant, with pumps, valves, steam generators, turbines, electric generators, condensers, and associated equipment. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Guide to nuclear power technology. New York: Wiley, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors.

      P5: Nuclear technology is recognized as special and unique. P5a The special characteristics of nuclear technology are taken into account in all decisions and actions. Reactivity control, continuity of core cooling, and integrity of fission product barriers are valued as essential, distinguishing attributes of the nuclear station work environment. The book is a gripping, suspenseful page-turner finely crafted to appeal both to people familiar with the science and those with only the barest inkling of how nuclear power works. Kirkus Reviews One of the worst nuclear disasters of all time.

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Rad Decision: A Novel of Nuclear Power; Inthe Fairview Nuclear Power Station is under construction near Brixton, Indiana.

A young engineer named Steve Borden is there. It is a "green nuclear" book that argues that nuclear power is necessary to save the world from global warming. The author does this by taking tours with a nuclear scientist through the whole nuclear cycle from mine to power plant to waste storage repository.4/5.

Description. Nuclear energy leaves behind an infinitely dangerous legacy of radioactive wastes in places that are remote and polluted landscapes of risk. Four of these places - Hanford (USA) where the plutonium for the first atomic bombs was made, Sellafield, where the UK’s nuclear legacy is concentrated and controversial.

Within a tale of espionage and disaster, the people, politics and technology of nuclear energy come to life/5. Rad Decision is a great book for techno-thriller fans and also for those of us who enjoy learning as we read.

The story is an entertaining spy story about a Russian mole who has been in place in the USA for about ten years.

He trained to be an operator in a nuclear power plant and has worked in a power plant for most of his time in the USA/5(5). Readers are given a succinct explanation of how a nuclear power plant works, a history of energy from the beginnings of civilization through the dawning of the atomic age, and a look at past and current legislation regarding its use.5/5(2).

The United States produces about 19% ( estimate) of its total energy from nuclear sources, whereas France pro- duces 79% and Brazil and India rely on the nuclear energy for only about % and % of their energy needs, respectively. They are non-fiction books which relate to uranium mining, nuclear weapons and/or nuclear power.

The book also explains how to navigate the various maintenance codes, standards and regulations for the nuclear power industry. Show less One of the most critical requirements for safe and reliable nuclear power plant operations is the availability of competent maintenance personnel.

The guide presents the factors to be considered in structuring the operations department of a nuclear power plant; setting high standards of performance; making safety related decisions in an effective manner; conducting control room and field activities in a thorough and professional manner; and maintaining a nuclear power plant within.

The report, written by nuclear energy expert Mark Hibbs (right) at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (), says China’s ambitious plans for nuclear energy could see it operating several hundred power reactors byimplementing a transition from pressurized water reactors (PWRs) to more advanced nuclear systems, and it has or will demonstrate a closed fuel.

If youve ever thought nuclear power was a good idea, just read this book and youll be dissuaded. It is horrifying, killing people right now in the most horrific ways, and will be killing people for generations to comesome of the birth defects wont start to manifest until another 40 or 50 generations/5.

Safety Culture in Nuclear Power Operations presents a cross-disciplinary look at the latest human factors developments in this industry, with wider applications for the entire industrial sector. The book discusses all aspects of safety issues including conceptual bases, societal dynamics and trends, and managing workplace issues and personnel.5/5(1).The Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident is forcing us to rethink our electric power industry with regard to what alternative power sources are available and whether we can abandon the nuclear industry altogether.

This chapter reviews the history of why we went with nuclear power, what alternatives we have at this point, and if they are feasible. Trump’s crucial decision on nuclear power.

there is a countdown clock ticking toward a major decision that few if any national security experts are focused on. they have to be for safe.
