Transcript

  • 1. Presented By:DILEEP GAWADE&Aniket birajdar (patil)
  • 2. Nuclear fuel is any material that can beconsumed to derive nuclear energy. The mostcommon type of nuclear fuel is fissileelements that can be made to undergo nuclearfission chain reactions in a nuclear reactorThe most common nuclear fuels are 235Uand 239Pu. Not all nuclear fuels are used infission chain reactions
  • 3. When a neutron strikes an atom of uranium,the uranium splits into two lighter atoms andreleases heat simultaneously.Fission of heavy elements is an exothermicreaction which can release large amounts ofenergy both as electromagnetic radiation and askinetic energy of the fragments
  • 4. NUCLEAR CHAIN REACTION A chain reaction refers to a process in which neutrons released in fission produce an additional fission in at least one further nucleus. This nucleus in turn produces neutrons, and the process repeats. If the process is controlled it is used for nuclear power or if uncontrolled it is used for nuclear weapons
  • 5.  U235 + n → fission + 2 or 3 n + 200 MeV If each neutron releases two more neutrons, then the number of fissions doubles each generation. In that case, in 10 generations there are 1,024 fissions and in 80 generations about 6 x 10 23 (a mole) fissions
  • 6. NUCLEAR POWER IN INDIA Nuclear power is the fourth-largest source of electricity in India after thermal, hydroelec tric and renewable sources of electricity. As of 2010, India has 20 nuclear reactors in operation in six nuclear power plants, generating 4,780 MW while five other plants are under construction and are expected to generate an additional 2,720 MW.
  • 7. Selection Of site : Availability of Cooling water. Transportation Facilities Distance for load Center Away from the urban areas due to pollution. Radioactive Waste Disposal Foundation Requirment
  • 8. THANK YOU!!!
