This category is about specific nuclear power plants. It includes commercial and technical information about plant design, capacity and operation.
A nuclear power plant uses the thermal energy produced in the reactor core to produce steam at high pressure. The steam drives a turbine, which spins a generator to produce electrical power.
Most of the nuclear reactors worldwide use light water as coolant and neutron moderator; they are called Light Water Reactor (LWR). In some reactors however, the coolant fluid is heavy water, gas (carbon dioxide) or liquid metal (sodium, potassium).
