A simple light water reactor The light water reactor (LWR) is a type of thermal reactor that uses normal water, as opposed to heavy water , as its coolant and neutron moderator and a solid compound of fissile element as its fuel. Thermal reactors are the most common type of nuclear reactor , and light water reactors are the most common type of thermal reactor.
AP1000 Nuclear Reactor
The control room of NC State 's Pulstar Nuclear Reactor. Pool-type reactors , also called swimming pool reactors , are a type of nuclear reactor that has a core (consisting of the fuel elements and the control rods ) immersed in an open pool of water.
The boiling water reactor (BWR) is a type of light water nuclear reactor used for the generation of electrical power.
This List of nuclear reactors is an annotated list of all the nuclear reactors in the world, sorted by country, with operational status.

Sodium is a chemical element with the symbol Na (from Latin : natrium ) in the periodic table and atomic number 11.
Shevchenko BN350 nuclear fast reactor and desalination plant situated on the shore of the Caspian Sea . The plant generated 135 MW e and provided steam for an associated desalination plant.
The CANDU (short for CANada Deuterium Uranium ) reactor is a Canadian-invented, pressurized heavy water reactor . The acronym refers to its deuterium-oxide ( heavy water ) moderator and its use of (originally, natural ) uranium fuel. CANDU reactors were first developed in the late 1950s and 1960s by a partnership between Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario (now Ontario Power Generation ), Canadian General Electric (now GE Canada), and other companies.
