To increase public awareness of innovations within the nuclear energy industry and their importance, the Nuclear Energy Institute has produced a series of videos about projects that have been recognized with a Top Industry Practice award. This is the second in a series of four videos that will be posted on the Nuclear Energy Institute’s website on a weekly basis. This video, “Global Ties Boost Nuclear Plant Performance,” highlights an international exchange of best practices by Exelon Nuclear. In its international technical exchange program, Exelon Nuclear has partnered in technical exchange with three of the largest international electric utilities: Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co., Tokyo Electric Power Co. and Electricity de France. Together, the four companies operate nearly one-quarter of the nuclear energy plants worldwide. All four have benefited from sharing plant operating experience, best practices, lessons learned, equipment reliability, risk management, and predictive and preventative maintenance practices. Released on July 7, the first video, “High Tech Stress Relief,” looked at the challenge of microscopic stress corrosion cracking in plant systems.
Iran began fueling the nation's first nuclear reactor Tuesday amidst controversy over the intended use of the plant.

*******www.bestpaydayloanlenders***.nr/ - CRAZY! A berm holding the flooded Missouri River back from a Nebraska nuclear power station collapsed early Sunday, but federal regulators said they were monitoring the situation and there was no danger. The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station shut down in early April for refueling, and there is no water inside the plant, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said. Also, the river is not expected to rise higher than the level the plant was designed to handle. NRC spokesman Victor Dricks said the plant remains safe.

An explosion at a nuclear plant and nuclear reactor in Japan 12.03.2011

Model no : 18A The display unit, which is used to display the results of corresponding temperature of a nuclear plant and to generate a warning signal in the event of rising temperature beyond limits as set. Here the controller continuously polls the temperature with certain regular time intervals and displays over the 7_segment display unit for the Microcontroller to enable the whole operation by executing the program. The temperature readings observed by the microcontroller through temperature sensor are compared with the programmed temperature value to in turn operate the relay that switches on a warning device.
The power supply consists of a step down transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage to 12V AC. This is converted to DC using a Bridge rectifier. The ripples are removed using a capacitive filter and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage regulator 7805 which is required for the operation of the microcontroller and other components.

Over 1,300 tubes containing radioactive water inside San Onofre nuclear plant's steam generators in California has been reportedly damaged enough that they need to be taken out of service.

After blasts on Friday and early Monday, fears of a third explosion at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are surfacing. 180,000 people have been evacuated. RT reports.
“Again, we are hearing the third reactor has lost its cooling capacity, increasing fears that it will overheat and cause another blast. Meanwhile, engineers have been using seawater to try to cool down reactors at the complex, which were damaged in the quake to avert a catastrophic nuclear meltdown.”
As rescue efforts continue, Japanese officials say the death toll of the earthquake and tsunami may could exceed 10,000 people.
Libyan rebels lost control of crucial oil town of Brega over the weekend. As forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi continue to make progress, euronews explains the pressure the rebels face.
“The regime appears to be getting closer to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi. The city of Ajdabiya lies on its path. And on Sunday, rebels there were bracing themselves for an attack. Gaddafi has vowed, has he put it, to liberate all of Libya. On state television he said he was certain of victory and that he would bury the rebels.”
Also in the Middle East — Bahrain protesters are calling for help from other Arab states, as they face increased violence from law enforcements. Al Jazeera shares this video.
“Shocking evidence of the lack of control Bahrain authorities have over the security services. A policeman uses a handgun to reportedly fire live rounds indiscriminately toward protesters. He then retreats to his vehicle.”
One thousand troops from Saudi Arabia arrived in Bahrain early today as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council forces, aiming to gain control and maintain stability in the country.
In U.S. news -- State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned yesterday over controversial comments he made about the Pentagon’s treatment of Army private Bradley Manning, who is suspected of leaking information to WikiLeaks.
CNN reports Crowley called Manning’s placement into solitary confinement "ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid.” At a press conference on Sunday, Crowley said he regrets going public with his statements, but he fears the mistreatment of Manning could undermine the prosecution and hurt President Obama’s worldwide reputation. The former Clinton aide had served the U.S. in and out of uniform for more than 30 years.
In sports -- selection Sunday ranked Duke, Kansas, Pittsburgh, and Ohio State as number one seeds for this’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. CBS Sports says it was the Big East conference who really came out on top sending 11 teams to the big dance. CBS Sports reporters talked with tournament chair Jeff Hathaway.
Reporter: “Mr. Hathaway I want to know, you’re very familiar with how successful the Big East has been this year -- 11 teams in the tournament. How hard was it to put them into the brackets when you want to avoid some of those second round matchups that could occur.
HATHAWAY: “Well certainly it is a challenge to have 11 teams from one conference come into the bracket, but you may know after the ninth team the bracketing policies are relaxed and give us the flexibility to accommodate the bracket.”
