Electricity From Nuclear Energy

Electricity From Nuclear Energy
Nuclear Power Plant and it’s Working :
The heat produced in a controlled fission can be used for producing electricity. The set–up used for generating electricity from the heat released in a controlled nuclear fission is called a nuclear power plant or nuclear power station. The heat produced in a controlled nuclear fission is used for producing steam. The steam so produced runs the turbine. The rotatory motion of the turbine rotates the alternator of the generator and the electricity is produced. Thus, in a nuclear power plant the energy transforms in the following sequence :
Nuclear Energy of Uranium–235 Nucleus → Heat Energy of Steam → Kinetic Energy of Turbine → Kinetic Energy of the Alternator → Electrical Energy
