A nuclear power plant converts the energy that is released by a process that converts nuclear fission into electrical power. The process of this conversion takes place inside of a nuclear reactor where heat from a process called nuclear fission is removed, and then this heat is then used to produce steam. This steam that’s created drives a steam turbine that is connected to a generator. This generator then converts the turbine output it receives into electrical power. The nuclear plants that have the largest generators are the ones that have the highest electrical production capacity. Today, you can find nuclear power plants currently in 30 countries around the world. There are over 440 separate nuclear power plants in these countries that supply approximately 14% of the electricity that the world currently uses. Below, we have our listing of the worlds 3 largest nuclear power producing plants.READ MORE!
Nuclear power plants provide a very large amount of the power needed to produce electricity for the worlds electricity needs. Sometimes we will hear bad things about these types of power plants. Yes, there have been some very bad incidents like the one that is called the Chernobyl disaster, which has left us some very important lessons to learn. Since that incident all the required precautions are now taken to ensure that all of our modern nuclear power plants are completely safe and that type of incident will never happen again. In fact, nuclear power plants are actually pretty safe of them. Inside the nuclear power plant, the entire power plant is designed to be encased inside a very thick and dome shaped building structure as one of the power plants safety measures. So now that you have read a little about nuclear power plants I am sureREAD MORE!
The first ever electrical experiment was done by a Greek philosopher named Thales of Miletus. He found that by rubbing amber against an animals fur it would attract stationary objects. This phenomenon was later named static electricity. Our word, ‘electricity’ comes from a Greek word, ‘elektron’ which means amber. There are many different ways to generate electricity. The most widely used method used to generate electricity is what is called electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction is when a force of mechanical energy which is developed by a heat engine like hydroelectric power, wind power, tidal power, propels or forces an electrical generator to rotate and that in turn generates electricity. Most of the electricity produced all around the world is generated using this method. There are many different ways that a country produces it’s electrical power. Sometimes the method they use to create their electricity is based onREAD MORE!
