Nuclear power
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The neutrality of this article is disputed
Please see discussion on the talk page This article is about power derived from nuclear reactions . For countries that possess nuclear weapons see: Nuclear powers Nuclear power is the use of sustained nuclear reactions to do useful work (in the past, this was called Atomic Energy ). Currently, Nuclear power is generated by nuclear fission reactions which occur when sufficient amounts of uranium -235 and/or plutonium are confined to a small space, often in the presence of a neutron moderator . The reaction produces heat which is converted to kinetic energy by means of a steam turbine and then a generator for electricity production. Nuclear power currently provides about 17% of the world's electricity and 7% of global energy. An international effort into the use of nuclear fusion for power is ongoing, but not expected to be available in commercially viable form for several decades. After a period of decline following the Three Mile Island accident and the incident at Chernobyl , there is a recently renewed interest in nuclear energy because it could partially address both dwindling oil reserves and global warming with fewer emissions of greenhouse gases than fossil fuel.

Nuclear reactor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Nuclear power station at Leibstadt Switzerland . The nuclear reactor is inside the dome-shaped containment building to the right of the cooling tower (venting steam). A nuclear reactor is a device in which nuclear chain reactions are initiated, controlled, and sustained at a steady rate (as opposed to a nuclear explosion , where the chain reaction occurs in a split second). Nuclear reactors are used for many purposes, but the most significant current uses are for the generation of electrical power and, in rare cases, for the production of plutonium for use in nuclear weapons . Currently all commercial nuclear reactors are based on nuclear fission , and are considered problematic for their safety and health risks. Experiments in fusion power seek to replace nuclear fission reactors with nuclear fusion reactors. There are other devices in which nuclear reactions occur in a controlled fashion, including radioisotope thermoelectric generators , which generate heat and power by passive radioactive decay, and Farnsworth-Hirsch fusors , in which controlled nuclear fusion is used to produce neutron radiation

Hazards Assistance Flood Maps NPSC ... Hazards Backgrounder: Nuclear Power Plant Emergency Search FEMA
Dam Safety Earthquakes Extreme Heat ... Mitigation Division
Backgrounder: Nuclear Power Plant Emergency Since 1980, each utility that owns a commercial nuclear power plant in the United States has been required to have both an onsite and offsite emergency response plan as a condition of obtaining and maintaining a license to operate that plant. Onsite emergency response plans are approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Offsite plans (which are closely coordinated with the utility's onsite emergency response plan) are evaluated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and provided to the NRC, who must consider the FEMA findings when issuing or maintaining a license. Federal law establishes the criterion for determining the adequacy of offsite planning and preparedness, i.e: "Plans and preparedness must be determined to adequately protect the public health and safety by providing reasonable assurance that appropriate measures can be taken offsite in the event of a radiological emergency." Although construction and operation of nuclear power plants are closely monitored and regulated by the NRC, an accident, though unlikely, is possible. The potential danger from an accident at a nuclear power plant is exposure to radiation. This exposure could come from the release of radioactive material from the plant into the environment, usually characterized by a plume (cloud-like) formation. The area the radioactive release may affect is determined by the amount released from the plant, wind direction and speed and weather conditions (i.e., rain, snow, etc.) which would quickly drive the radioactive material to the ground, hence causing increased deposition of radionuclides.

How Nuclear Power Works
Page 1 of 2 next
by this reporter 02:00 AM Jul. 05, 2005 PT Why use nuclear power? Unlike burning fossil fuels, using nuclear fission to generate electricity produces no soot or greenhouse gases. This helps keep the skies clean and doesn't contribute to global warming. The World Nuclear Association estimates that the electricity industry would add 2.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere each year if it used coal power instead of nuclear.

How clean, green atomic energy can stop global warming By Peter Schwartz and Spencer Reiss Page 1 of 5 next
Feature: Nuclear Now Plus: Green vs. Green On a cool spring morning a quarter century ago, a place in Pennsylvania called Three Mile Island exploded into the headlines and stopped the US nuclear power industry in its tracks. What had been billed as the clean, cheap, limitless energy source for a shining future was suddenly too hot to handle.

In the years since, we've searched for alternatives, pouring billions of dollars into windmills, solar panels, and biofuels. We've designed fantastically efficient lightbulbs, air conditioners, and refrigerators. We've built enough gas-fired generators to bankrupt California. But mainly, each year we hack 400 million more tons of coal out of Earth's crust than we did a quarter century before, light it on fire, and shoot the proceeds into the atmosphere.
