Nuclear power plants have many features in common with traditional electrical power facilities; the main difference is that they produce energy with radioactive materials instead of conventional fuels. The same commercial power grid carries electricity from nuclear and fossil-fuel plants .

[International Atomic Energy Agency,; International Atomic Energy Agency. Division of Nuclear Power,;]. "Interaction of Grid Characteristics with Design and Performance of Nuclear Power Plants: A Guidebook", has created a definite awareness of the problems inherent in operating NPPs within an electric grid of limited performance and indicated some directions where efforts to mitigate the various problems could be fruitful.

This publication describes the characteristics of the electrical grid system that are required for the connection and successful operation of a nuclear power plant, as well as the characteristics of a nuclear power plant that are significant for the design and operation of the electrical grid system.

Many nuclear power plants are larger than the fossil fuel plants they supplement or replace, and it does not make sense to have any generating unit more than about one tenth the capacity of the grid (maybe 15% if there is high reserve capacity).

A nuclear power plant (nuclear power station) looks like a standard thermal power station with one exception. The heat source in the nuclear power plant is a nuclear reactor. As is typical in all conventional thermal power stations the heat is used to generate steam which drives a steam turbine connected to a generator which produces electricity.

Electricity grids are slowly getting smarter. Simultaneously, the use of distributed generation is increasing. Though smart grid advocates tout the ability of a smarter grid to enable greater. Reactor Concepts Manual Nuclear Power for Electrical Generation USNRC Technical Training Center At the nuclear power plant, the fuel assemblies are inse rted vertically into the reactor vessel (a large steel tank filled with water with a removable top).

Most fission gases have low solubility in the fuel matrix, specifically the insolubility is most pronounced for large fission gas atoms such as Xe, and as a result there is a significant driving force for segregation of gas atoms to grain boundaries or dislocations and subsequently for nucleation of gas bubbles at these sinks.
