Nowadays the main use given to nuclear energy is the generation of electric powernuclear power plants are responsible of doing this process almost all nuclear power plants in production are using nuclear fission since the nuclear fusion despite being under development is currently unfeasible the operation of a nuclear power plant is identical to the operation of a thermoelectric power . In order to turn nuclear fission into electrical energy nuclear power plant operators have to control the energy given off by the enriched uranium and allow it to heat water into steam that steam then drives turbines to generate electricity source nei enriched uranium typically is formed into 1 inch long 25 centimeter long pellets each with approximately the same diameter as a dime. A collection of nuclear power plant diagrams are available in the following printable diagrams to help you learn how the nuclear reactor works the images that we have collected in the following images below show basic components and layout of a nuclear power stationthe first diagram is available right below and the other types of nuclear reactor such as bwr and candu are also provided.
