At this site you can learn about the safety of nuclear energy and the principles of operation of a nuclear reactor and nuclear power plant in general.

Site category: Nuclear and radiation safety

Simply about complicated things: at this site you can learn about nuclear power safety and the principles of operation of the nuclear reactor and the nuclear power plant as a whole. To get an idea of how a nuclear power plant works, everyone can watch a short movie.

The heart of a nuclear power plant is the nuclear reactor. The site presents a simplified model of a VVER-1200 water-water power reactor. In order to start it, it is necessary to raise the control rods. The reactor power can be adjusted by raising or lowering the rods or by using boron solution, which also absorbs neutrons. At 40% power, the steam generator and turbines are started.

There are a total of 190 nuclear power plants (443 power units) in the world. The interactive globe will tell you about all the nuclear powers.
