About this book

Introduction

"Power Plants with Modular High-Temperature Reactors" introduces the power plants driven by modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTR), which are characterized by their inherent safety features and high output temperatures. HTRs have the potential to be adopted near demand side to supply both electricity and process heat, directly replacing conventional fossil fuels. The world is confronted with two dilemmas in the energy sector, namely climate change, and energy supply security. HTRs have the potential to significantly alleviate these concerns. This book will provide readers with a thorough understanding of HTRs, their history, principles, and fields of application.
The book is intended for researchers and engineers involved with nuclear engineering and energy technology.
