Advantages of nuclear power plants.

1. The nuclear power plant is more economical compared with thermal in areas where coal field is far away.
2. There is no problem of fuel transportation, storage and handling and ash handling as in thermal power plants.
3. Man power required for the operation of nuclear power plant is less. Therefore the cost of operation is reduced.
4. Nuclear plant occupies less space than thermal power plants, which reduces the cost of civil construction.
5. The capital cost in structural materials, piping and storage are less than thermal plants of the same capacity.

Disadvantages of nuclear power plants.

l. Danger of nuclear radiation.
2. Problem of disposing the radioactive waste materials.
3. It has to be operated at full load throughout for a good efficiency. So part load operation becomes inefficient.
4. Capital cost of small size plants is very high.

Hi you have done a good job. It will be more intresting if you give a detailed information on advantages and disadvantages of nuclear pollution

In advantages you can use some numerical data or figures of nuclear power production in comparision with thermal,hydro,and gas power plants.and

comparision of cost per unit power also steam output per unit fuel of nuclear plant with other type of plants.

Also you can give figures on plant erection time in comparision with other types of power plants

Discussing on disadvantages, you may include the the

details of radioactive chemicals,

effects on environment,

tolerance levels of human beings for various radio active materials,

high radio active levels in and around plant,

employee or workers safty,

health issues,

polluting sea with radio active waste,

recycling of radio active waste,and safe disposal of radio active waste.

Still today people have confusion regarding use of nuclear energy. This type of topics can able to bring awareness on use of nuclear energy. I want to give special thanks to all as they explained different points on advantages and disadvantages on use of nuclear energy.

The one given here is just a few points regarding pros and cons.

A project normally is a little more detailed covering many aspects of the matter with supporting documents and photos or diagrams adding to the richness.

I can say a few points in support and in against the nuclear power plant.

Pros:- Nuclear power is a source of clean power.It does not directly pollute air by smoke or smell.

Nuclear power does not use any fossil fuel , which is getting depleted from nature gradually.


Cons: Though nuclear power generation does not pollute air directly with smoke,it may out air contamination with dangerously radioactive material .

A brief summary of the project related to Nuclear Power Plants will be helpful in preparation of detail projects.
The main disadvantages like nuclear radiation and problems of disposal of nuclear waste materials are the most vital issues in Nuclear Power Plants.
Recent disasters of nuclear power plants in Japan has become a great concern to all the developed country.
Scientists and researchers of all over the developed countries in the world are working hard to completely safe guard the nuclear radiations effects.
"How to operate Nuclear Power Plants more safely and efficiently for the benefits of human" will be an appropriate title of the project.

Hi

It is good, if added little more information it would be too good

DISADVANTAGES:

1. Nuclear power is a controversial method of producing electricity. Many people and environmental organisations are very concerned about the radioactive fuel it needs.
2. There have been serious accidents with a small number of nuclear power stations. The accident at Chernobyl (Ukraine) in 1986, led to 30 people being killed and over 100,000 people being evacuated. In the preceding years another 200,00 people were resettled away from the radioactive area. Radiation was even detected over a thousand miles away in the UK as a result of the Chernobyl accident. It has been suggested that over time 2500 people died as a result of the accident.
3. There are serious questions to be answered regarding the storage of radioactive waste produced through the use of nuclear power. Some of the waste remains radioactive (dangerous) for thousands of years and is currently stored in places such as deep caves and mines.
4. Storing and monitoring the radioactive waste material for thousands of years has a high cost.
5. Nuclear powered ships and submarines pose a danger to marine life and the environment. Old vessels can leak radiation if they are not maintained properly or if they are dismantled carelessly at the end of their working lives.
6. Many people living near to nuclear power stations or waste storage depots are concerned about nuclear accidents and radioactive leaks. Some fear that living in these areas can damage their health, especially the health of young children.
7. Many Governments fear that unstable countries that develop nuclear power may also develop nuclear weapons and even use them.

ADVANTAGES:

1. The amount of electricity produced in a nuclear power station is equivalent to that produced by a fossil fuelled power station.
2. Nuclear power stations do not burn fossil fuels to produce electricity and consequently they do not produce damaging, polluting gases.
3. Many supporters of nuclear power production say that this type of power is environmentally friendly and clean. In a world that faces global warming they suggest that increasing the use of nuclear power is the only way of protecting the environment and preventing catastrophic climate change.
4. Many developed countries such as the USA and the UK no longer want to rely on oil and gas imported from the Middle East, a politically unstable part of the world.
5. Countries such as France produce approximately 90 percent of their electricity from nuclear power and lead the world in nuclear power generating technology - proving that nuclear power is an economic alternative to fossil fuel power stations.
6. Nuclear reactors can be manufactured small enough to power ships and submarines. If this was extended beyond military vessels, the number of oil burning vessels would be reduced and consequently pollution.

Hi,

Nice project.
But in my think you should provide very short information or project about nuclear advantage and dis advantage. You can more points include in this project.

Thank & Regards

Hi

The nuclear projects had effected japan alot with that all must take some care about nuclear with your project is so good to study. It will make people to think about the nuclear project is harmfull to living creature.
