Nuclear Power Plant Simulator Game

Nuclear Power Plant Simulator Game

Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar. Using the tour There is a comprehensive tour which goes through the workings of the reactor, starting from a consumer of electrical energy and working backwards to the reactor core itself. You can restart the tour at any time using the button at the top left of the screen. Hint numbers Each part of the simulation has a hint number that you can click to see a description of its function. The skill test Once you're familiar with how to use the reactor you can see whether you can control the reactor so that the power output matches the demand from the city.

Uranium appauvri NE PAS HESITER A ALLER VOIR LES COMMENTAIRES (qui rectifient quelques petites erreur u_U') SOURCES_ la carte est tirée du terrible site Awkward familly, site de photos de famille atroces._ La centrale dessinée par Youki est une centrale REP (réacteur à eau sous pression--> joli schéma qui bouge), qui comporte de grosses "cheminées" par où sortent la vapeur d'eau du circuit secondaire.Le modèle de Mac Gyver (et de Fukushima) est une REB (réacteur à eau bouillante), et il n'y a pas de "cheminée" de refroidissement car l'eau chauffée retourne au réacteur (si j'ai bien tout compris)._En parlant de cheminées de refroidissements, en voilà deux qui explosent.

Documentation > Tout ce qui est radioactif > Tout ce qui est radioactif > Sortir du nucléaire, cela veut dire quoi exactement ? Quelques réflexions sur une sortie du nucléaire Première mouture : 1er avril 2011 (sans blague !) - dernière modification : Juillet 2012 - paru sous forme papier dans la revue Le Débat de mars 2012 site de l'auteur : - contacter l'auteur : L'une des réactions au double séisme qui a frappé le Japon en mars 2011 a été, sans grande surprise, une montée en puissance des demandes d'arrêt des centrales nucléaires un peu partout dans le monde. Combien de nucléaire... et de charbon ? En 2009, le nucléaire mondial a produit un peu moins de 3.000 TWh (un TWh signifie un térawattheure, soit un milliard de kWh) sur une production électrique mondiale d'un peu moins de 20.000 TWh. Par quoi remplacer le nucléaire ? Si nous "sortons du nucléaire", il y a en théorie plusieurs manières de le remplacer, qui peuvent du reste se combiner :

Global Nuclear Generation Capacity Falls Due to increasing costs of production, a slowed demand for electricity, and fresh memories of disaster in Japan, production of nuclear power fell in 2011, according to the latest Vital Signs Online (VSO) report from the Worldwatch Institute. Despite reaching record levels the previous year, global installed nuclear capacity—the potential power generation from all existing plants—declined to 366.5 gigawatts (GW) in 2011, from 375.5 GW at the end of 2010. Not surprisingly, this drop in installed capacity corresponds with a decline in global consumption of nuclear energy. Nuclear’s share of world commercial primary energy usage fell to around 5 percent in 2010, having peaked at about 6 percent in 2001 and 2002. Only four countries—the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom—increased their share of nuclear power by over 1 percentage point between 2009 and 2010. Much of the decline in installed capacity is the result of halted reactor construction around the world.

OSP Simulations Overview » home » Simulations » Overview Overview Search for OSP Simulations or browse by topic Applications There are three ways to distribute and run Java programs. Java Applications Java Web Start Java Applets Each distribution method is slightly different and has its advantages and disadvantages. Other websites or curriculum developers may adopt a different distribution mechanism and additional pages in this section show how Open Source Physics programs can be distributed as applets and using Web Start. A classical-physics model of helium consisting of two electrons in a 1/r potential well and interacting through a 1/r potential. Example: Download the classical helium simulation and run the mech_helium.jar file. Jar Files Ready to run OSP models are packaged in a Java archive (jar) file such as osp_demo.jar of osp_guide.jar. Users may also execute a jar file from within a console (terminal) although it is unlikely that students will want to deal with the complexities of command-line syntax.
