Handbook of Generation IV Nuclear Reactors

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2016.

ISBNs 9780081001493

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

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 430 power reactors in the world) that have relatively low thermal efficiencies (within the range of 32 36%) compared to those of modern advanced thermal power plants (combined cycle gas-fired power plants – up to 62% and supercritical pressure coal-fired power plants – up to 55%).

Moreover, thermal efficiency of the current fleet of NPPs with water-cooled reactors cannot be increased significantly without completely different innovative designs, which are Generation IV reactors. Nuclear power is vital for generating electrical energy without carbon emissions.

Complete with the latest research, development, and design, and written by an international team of experts, this handbook is completely dedicated to Generation IV reactors.

  • Presents the first comprehensive handbook dedicated entirely to generation IV nuclear reactors
  • Reviews the latest trends and developments
  • Complete with the latest research, development, and design information in generation IV nuclear reactors
  • Written by an international team of experts in the field

Handbook of Small Modular Nuclear Reactors

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2014.

ISBNs 9780857098511

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Small modular reactors (SMRs) are an advanced, safe type of nuclear reactor technology that are suitable for small and medium sized applications including both power and heat generation. In particular, their use as individual units or in combination to scale-up capacity offer benefits in terms of siting, installation, operation, lifecycle and economics in comparison to the development of larger nuclear plant for centralised electricity power grids. Interest has increased in the research and development of SMRs for both developing countries as well as such additional cogeneration options as industrial/chemical process heat, desalination and district heating, and hydrogen production. This book reviews key issues in their development as well as international R&D in the field.

  • Gives an overview of small modular reactor technology
  • Reviews the design characteristics of integral pressurized water reactors and focuses on reactor core and fuel technologies, key reactor system components, instrumentation and control, human-system interfaces and safety
  • Considers the economics, financing, licensing, construction methods and hybrid energy systems of small modular reactors
  • Describes SMR development activities worldwide, and concludes with a discussion of how SMR deployment can contribute to the growth of developing countries

Irradiation Embrittlement of Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs) in Nuclear Power Plants

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2015.

ISBNs 9781845699673

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs) contain the fuel and therefore the reaction at the heart of nuclear power plants. They are a life-determining structural component: if they suffer serious damage, the continued operation of the plant is in jeopardy. This book critically reviews irradiation embrittlement, the main degradation mechanism affecting RPV steels, and mitigation routes for managing the RPV lifetime.

Part I reviews RPV design and fabrication in different countries, with an emphasis on the materials required, their important properties, and manufacturing technologies. Part II then considers RVP embrittlement in operational nuclear power plants using different reactors. Chapters are devoted to embrittlement in light-water reactors, including WWER-type reactors and Magnox reactors. Finally, Part III presents techniques for studying embrittlement, including irradiation simulation techniques, microstructural characterisation techniques, and probabilistic fracture mechanics.

Irradiation Embrittlement of Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs) in Nuclear Power Plants provides a thorough review of an issue that is central to the safety of nuclear power generation. The book includes contributions from an international team of experts, and will be a useful resource for nuclear plant operators and managers, relevant regulatory and safety bodies, nuclear metallurgists and other academics in this field

  • Discusses reactor pressure vessel (RPV) design and the effect irradiation embrittlement can have, the main degradation mechanism affecting RPVs
  • Examines embrittlement processes in RPVs in different reactor types, as well as techniques for studying RPV embrittlement
