Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • to explain the basics of nuclear fission
  • to summarize main characteristics of nuclear power plants
  • to compare different types and its safety aspects of nuclear power plants
  • to obtain information on the present state of radioactiv waste management
  • to repeat and analyse historic reactor accidents
  • to demonstrate possible future developments in nuclear technologies

Subject of course

The course gives a survey on the current design of nuclear power plants, such as PWR, BWR,VVER, CANDU, AGR, HTR, LMFBR, GEN 3+ and Gen 4 NPPs, Small Modular NPPs. Further the safety aspects and major nuclear accidents in the past (such as Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, Fukushima) and the situation in Europe after Fukushima are discussed. For each reactor type specific safety and operational aspects are discussed. Radioactive waste management and disposal options in Europe are discussed.
