Modern Nuclear Power Plants of the latest Generation

The nuclear power stations used in Germany were built in the 1970th and 1980th and belong to the technical generation II. The state of the art technology meanwhile belong to generation III or III-plus. Under investigation are the first units of generation IV.

Actually about 6 different technologies for new nuclear power stations with enhanced safety parameter are under research. That is why a lot of countries around the world will move more and more into the field of CO2 free generation from such modern nuclear power stations.
Germany decided to find a way for a secured power generation mainly from renewable source. So a lot of resources have to be spend in the field of grid and system integration of these highly fluctuating source ….. Perfect for researcher in electric power engineering.
