This page is about the main conventional types of nuclear reactor. A nuclear reactor produces and controls the release of energy from splitting the atoms of certain elements. In a nuclear power reactor, the energy released is used as heat to make steam to generate electricity. In a research reactor the main purpose is to utilise the actual neutrons produced in the core. In most naval reactors, steam drives a turbine directly for propulsion. The principles for using nuclear power to produce electricity are the same for most types of reactor.
A nuclear power plant is a thermal power station in which the heat source is a nuclear reactor. As is typical of thermal power stations, heat is used to generate steam that drives a steam turbine connected to a generator that produces electricity. Nuclear plants are usually considered to be base load stations since fuel is a small part of the cost of production  and because they cannot be easily or quickly dispatched. Their operations, maintenance, and fuel costs are at the low end of the spectrum, making them suitable as base-load power suppliers. However, the cost of proper long term radioactive waste storage is uncertain. Electricity was generated by a nuclear reactor for the first time ever on September 3, , at the X Graphite Reactor in Oak Ridge, Tennessee , US which was the first nuclear power station to power a light bulb. On June 27, , the world's first nuclear power station to generate electricity for a power grid , the Obninsk Nuclear Power Plant , started operations in Obninsk of the Soviet Union.

From its beginnings in the early s, the nuclear power industry 1 and the government institutions that support and regulate it have brought nuclear generation to a position second only to coal as a source of electricity in the United States. By the end of , the United States had commercial nuclear power plants licensed to operate 2 , with a combined capacity of about 99, megawatts electric. However, expansion of commercial nuclear energy has virtually halted in the United States.
Nuclear Engineering: Theory and Technology of Commercial Nuclear Power, Second Edition. Ronald A. Knief. Item ID: |ISBN:
The nuclear engineering program is offered under the department of mining and nuclear engineering. The nuclear engineering program has a primary mission to provide an outstanding and comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education to tomorrow's leaders in nuclear engineering. The department provides well-educated nuclear engineering professionals and leaders to Missouri and the nation, in the commercial nuclear industry, national laboratories, graduate schools, and the nation's defense and federal agencies. The objectives of the bachelor of science program are to provide each student with fundamental knowledge of nuclear engineering and related technologies, analytical and problem solving ability, ability for technical communications, professional ethics, leadership and interpersonal skills, capability to conduct research, and the ability to recognize the value of life-long learning.
Nuclear Energy Technology provides a methodical, well-tested basis for self-paced study by the practicing professional. The fundamental principles are stressed to maximize one's ability to analyze the growing impact of nuclear energy in the future. Special features include: thorough overview introducing the reader to nuclear fuel cycles and nuclear power; theoretical coverage stressing the essentials of design and operational applications; comprehensive and integrated coverage of unique aspects of nuclear reactors; crucial information on reactor safety fundamentals; analysis of nuclear fusion including magnetic and inertial confinement.
