Length: 1 days
The aim of the Introduction to Nuclear Power Operations is to provide engineers with an introduction to the main components and terminology associated with the UK's current Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor and modern water reactor designs and their operation. The level and depth in this one-day course should assist delegates to efficiently integrate into teams working on nuclear generation projects. The course will provide an appreciation of the components comprising and function of nuclear reactors.
This course is organized in partnership with GSE Systems
You Will Learn
- Describe the outline history of nuclear power in the UK, why we have the reactors we have, understand the roles of the main sites and their position in the fuel cycle
- Identify the various types of nuclear reactor currently in operation in the UK together with the EPR and - AP1000 designs, which are the likely candidates for the next generation of plant
- Recognize the main essential ancillary and support systems; using AP1000 as an example look at the main design challenges and the differences to present designs
- Compare and contrast hard wire current control systems and control rooms with next generation distributed control systems
- Appreciate the challenges of operators in nuclear plant
- Describe the interface of a nuclear plant with the electricity grid
