Produktbeschreibung
Assesses the engineering of renewable sources for commercialpower generation and discusses the safety, operation, and controlaspects of nuclear electric power From an expert who advised the European Commission and UKgovernment in the aftermath of Three Mile Island and Chernobylcomes a book that contains experienced engineering assessments ofthe options for replacing the existing, aged, fossil-fired powerstations with renewable, gas-fired, or nuclear plants. From geothermal, solar, and wind to tidal and hydro generation,Nuclear Electric Power: Safety, Operation, and ControlAspects assesses the engineering of renewable sources forcommercial power generation and discusses the important aspects ofthe design, operation, and safety of nuclear stations. Nuclear Electric Power offers: * Novel, practical engineering assessments for geothermal, hydro,solar, tidal, and wind generation in terms of the available data oncost, safety, environmental damage, capacity factor reliability,and grid compatibility, with some nuclear comparisons * Eigenvalues and real frequency response functions to assess thestabilities of reactor power, two-phase channel flow, and a Gridnetwork * A non-linear control strategy with simulation results for aDesign Base Accident scenario * Original analyses with experimental validation of molten fuelcoolant interactions and aircraft impacts on rigid structures * Analysis of the circumstances that led to the Fukushimadisaster Nuclear Electric Power is an important book for allinternational nuclear power agencies and those who work within thefield.

Autorenporträt
J. Brian Knowles, PhD, DSc, now retired, remainsprofessionally active with CEN Grenoble and KfK, where he compiledthe results of European-wide MFCI experiments. In 1993, he visitedthe Russian Federation to discuss fast reactor collaboration aspart of the European Commission's Whole Core Accident Committee andwas later a member of the OECD-CSNI working group on water reactoraccident management. Dr. Knowles was also a UKAEA Section Head ofThermal Dynamics at Winfrith, where he was responsible for acomprehensive modular simulation of intact plant dynamics used inAGR and proposed fast reactor designs.
