Nuclear Power Plant

A nuclear power plant is a heat station that uses a nuclear reaction to produce #heat instead of fossil fuels.

This heat generates a #steam that rotates a steam #turbine as in the #Runkine cycle .

The nuclear fission is reacted within the core of the reactor when a neutron strikes a heavy metal nucleus such as a Uranium 235, which leads to a fission into lighter, more free nuclei and much heat.

The resulting heat is absorbed by the heavy water pipes that give the heat to the boiling water circuit by heat exchanger steam generator and the rest of the circuit as it is in the Rankine circuit in steam thermal stations
