Introduction Need of electrical power Requirement of nuclear power 1kg of Ur energy = 3000 tones of coal Ur= 3millions times of coalAccording to committee of government of India(2001) nuclear power is cheaper by 8 to 10 paisa per Kwh than thermal plantSuitable areas west up, N & W Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana

Nuclear fissionprocess of splitting of a heavy nucleus into two or more small nuclei.Two or more neutrons are produced by fission ofeach nucleus.In fission process a loss of mass of 0.2amu peruranium atom occurs which converts Into 200MeV ofenergy.
Nuclear fuel and energyNuclear fuels Natural uranium, enriched uranium plutoniumNuclear energyEnergy released by the fission of nuclei is called nuclear energyUncontrolled chain reaction:-explosiveviolence and atom bombControlled chain reaction:-to generateelectricity
Merits of Nuclear power plant Easy Transportation of Fuel Required Small Area than other plants- 2000MW N.plant Required 80 acres. While steam power plant of same capacity needs about 250acres. Economic Output control Flexible Clean Power Plant compare to Thermal can meet the future requarement
•Capital cost very high than other power plant• Danger of Radio active pollution• Fuel used is expensive•Maintenance charge very high•Disposal of product
