Utility
Controlling a Nuclear Reaction
4 Aug 22
A nuclear power system includes a reactor vessel that includes a reactor core that includes nuclear fuel assemblies configured to generate a nuclear fission reaction; a riser positioned above the reactor core; a primary coolant flow path that extends from a bottom portion of the volume through the reactor core and through an annulus between the riser and the reactor vessel; a primary coolant that circulates through the primary coolant flow path to receive heat from the nuclear fission reaction and release the heat to generate electric power in a power generation system; and a control rod assembly system positioned in the reactor vessel and configured to position control rods in only two discrete positions.
