Nuclear Power Plant

A nuclear power plant is a thermal power station in which the heat source is a nuclear reactor. The key components common to most nuclear power plants are: Nuclear Reactor, Steam Generators, Pressurizer, Reactor Coolant Pumps, Safety Systems, Steam Turbine, Generator, Condenser and Condensate-Feedwater System.

Pressurized Water Reactors (also known as PWRs) keep water under pressure so that it heats, but does not boil. This heated water is circulated through tubes in steam generators, allowing the water in the steam generators to turn to steam, which then turns the turbine generator.

The video below shows the working principles of pressurized Water Nuclear Reactor.
