Nuclear Power Plants: Harnessing the Power of Nuclear Energy (Powered Up. A Stem Approach to Energy Sources). Nuclear Power provides a concise, up-to-date, accessible guide to the most controversial form of power generation. The author includes a comprehensive description of the various methods for generating nuclear power and evaluates the political, strategic, environmental, economic, and emotional factors involved in each method.

Nuclear power is a small book for little children. Most of the content of the book you get from the description itself.

The pictures are attractive and children could easily connect with the content. It helps them get over the misconception of nuclear power and makes them receptive to embrace fresh ideas/5(12).

Chapter 1 — The Future of Nuclear Power — Overview and Conclusions 1 The generation of electricity from fossil fuels, notably natural gas and coal, is a major and growing contributor to the emission of carbon dioxide – a green-house gas that contributes significantly to global warming.

We share the sci. This chapter opens the book by connecting fundamental, and most likely familiar, concepts of forces, power and energy forms to the subject matter of nuclear energy. Energy forms addressed include potential, kinetic, mechanical, electrical, thermal, radiant, and electromagnetic energies.

A fairly good book on the politics and technology Nuclear power-- book nuclear power. the author is quite correct to point out that problems and dangers of nuclear power are overblown by the public just as the risks of climate catastrophe are underestimated by the public.4/5.

Handbook of Generation IV Nuclear Reactors presents information on the current fleet of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) with water-cooled reactors (Generation III and III+) (96% of power reactors in the Nuclear power-- book that have relatively low thermal efficiencies (within the range of 32 36%) compared to those of modern advanced thermal power plants.

At the same time, catastrophic earthquake and tsunami events in Japan resulted in the nuclear accident that forced us to rethink our approach to nuclear safety, design requirements and facilitated growing interests in advanced nuclear energy systems.

This book is one in a series of books on nuclear power published by by: 4. NUCLEAR POWER is a creator-owned, 6-issue comic book series written by Desirée Proctor and Erica Harrell (Telltale Games’ THE WALKING DEAD: MICHONN Nuclear Power (Pre Followers: Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power r power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions.

Presently, the vast majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium. 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. The Legacy of Nuclear power-- book Power takes a historical and geographical perspective going back to the origins of these places and the ever changing relationship between local communities and the nuclear industry.

The case studies are based on a variety of academic and policy sources and on conversations with a vast array of people over many years.

The UK will close all its nuclear power plants over the next ten years. France is to close 14 of its 58 reactors by Switzerland has voted against using nuclear power.

In Japan, 24 of 33 nuclear power plants remain shutdown after the Fukushima disaster. Six of the 9 reactors that have been restarted are to be shut down over the next ten years. 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.

Using permanent magnets may help to make nuclear fusion reactors simpler and more affordable. - Big Think, Ma The promise of nuclear fusion generators is tantalizing: By harnessing the power of the same atomic process that powers our sun, we may someday be able to generate virtually unlimited amounts of clean energy.

The reality is that nuclear power is the safest form of energy humanity has ever used. Mining. This book grew out of projects funded by the Kentucky Human­ ities Council in and and by the Environmental Protec­ tion Agency in and As a result of the generosity of these two agencies, I was able to study the logical, methodological, and ethical assumptions inherent in the Nuclear Power and Public Policy The Social.

Project Drawdown defines nuclear as: the electricity generation from nuclear fission in the form of Uranium as used in pressurized water reactors, a type of light-water reactor using low-enriched uranium fuel.

This solution replaces conventional electricity-generating technologies such as coal, oil, and natural gas power plants.

Duderstadt and Hamilton's book, Nuclear Reactor Analysis provides an in depth analysis on the inner workings of a nuclear reactor. In this series we will discuss: 1. The following essay is excerpted from the foreword to Keeping the Lights on at America's Nuclear Power Plants, a new book from the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy work is part of the task force’s Reinventing Nuclear Power research series.

Nuclear power alone will not solve our energy problems. Inside this book, you will find a bit of history about nuclear power that began in when the Atomic Energy Act of ( th Congress, 2 nd Session) became a law. This scholarly text explores the political, business, construction, and environmental elements surrounding nuclear power plant safety and regulation within the United States.

This book introduces readers to basic approaches in and principles of marine nuclear power design, including overall reactor design, in-core design, coolant systems and devices, I&C system design, safety system design, and dynamic analysis Rating: % positive. Apex Press, — pages, paperback This book provides critical analysis and historical evidence to refute claims that nuclear power can alleviate the build-up of greenhouse gases and reduce U.S.

dependence on foreign oil. It also reveals the hazards of further proliferation of nuclear weapons from the growing quantities of plutonium generated by existing [ ]. Nuclear energy uses Uranium as fuel, which is a scarce resource.

The supply of Uranium is expected to last only for the next 30 to 60 years (depending on the actual demand). Therefore nuclear energy is not a renewable energy. From the above mentioned pros and cons of nuclear power plants, it should be evident that nuclear energy cannot be a.

The book analyses the risks of nuclear power stations. The security concept of reactors is explained. Measures against the spread of radioactivity after a severe accident, accidents of core melting and a possible crash of an air plane on reactor containment are discussed.

The book covers three. Nuclear power is deadly, dirty, expensive and short of uranium in a decade. The deaths from nuclear power are about the same per MWH when you include mining, emissions, wastes and use LNT and collective dose.

Particulate alpha emitters are also ’s of times more carcinogenic. In his magisterial new book, Energy: A Human History, the Pulitzer-winning historian, Richard Rhodes, quotes the inventor of the first peaceful nuclear power plant, U.S.

Navy Admiral Hyman. Nuclear power is not merely an energy option for the future, geoscientist Scott L. Montgomery writes in his new book, it is a life-saving and essential way for the world to provide energy and avoid “carbon and climate failure.”. In “Seeing the Light: The Case for Nuclear power in the 21 st Century,” Montgomery, who is an affiliate with the University of Washington’s Jackson School of.
