NUCLEAR POWER PLANT FOR LONG-TERM ENERGY SECURITY

Category: 2013 , NPSS Events

IEEE NPSS AlexSC was pleased to deliver its first session about nuclear power plants. The session started by a question, namely- what is the future international energy map?

Answering this question, the term “Energy Security”, was highlighted, which is the guarantee of continuous energy supply at affordable prices. Afterwards, the session was driven from general energy supply systems to nuclear energy systems. Basic reactor physics concepts were introduced, namely the fission process, the moderator concept, etc…

Subsequently, a brief discussion of the nuclear steam supply system (NSSS) and its different components had taken place. The current safety and security challenges facing nuclear technology were presented elucidating the continuity of production and development of new power plants in the market.
