Summary
The subject deals with the area of thermal calculations, design and construction of nuclear power plants. The student will acquire more detailed knowledge of the primary circuit of the nuclear power plant, will be acquainted with individual components of various types of nuclear power equipment, enabling their design and construction.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Preparation of specialists in the field of thermal calculations, design and construction of nuclear power plant equipment. The course builds on mastered the material in "nuclear energy" in the BC study, termomechanics and heat and mass transfer. Students acquire detailed knowledge of the primary circuit of nuclear power plants, learn about the various components of different types of nuclear power facilities, allowing them to design and construction of the diploma work.
