I recently graduated college with a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering. I will soon be starting my first job at a Nuclear Power Plant. At first I don’t expect to have too many responsibilities, but I’d still like to develop an understanding of how the plant works.
Does anyone know how to access resources for studying the operation of nuclear power plants? I’d like to develop a somewhat detailed understanding of the nuclear reactors (PWR & BWR), the turbines and the generators. I would also like to study the coolant system, as well as anything else that might give me a better understanding of how nuclear power plants work, in general.
Feel free to share any experiences you have had at nuclear plants.
