Abstract:
A textbook which merges nuclear engineering theory and principle with central station nuclear power plant application was developed and implemented. Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station operating processes and procedures were used as the arena within which to develop and apply nuclear, thermodynamic, and fluid dynamic theoretical principles. From plant heatup, through nuclear startup and power ascension, to power operation and then to plant shutdown, nuclear engineering principles are applied through the use of discussions, examples, problems and study questions. Detailed descriptions and solutions are included. Used as the text for a senior level course at U of A Nuclear Engineering Department in Spring 1993 and for engineer training at Palo Verde in January, 1994, this text has been developed, evaluated, tested and revised to assure applicability and thoroughness. The resultant instrument has been adopted as the text for required initial training of Shift Technical Advisors at Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station.
