Special Issue Description

Utilizing nuclear reactions to generate electricity is known as a nuclear power. Nuclear fission, nuclear decay, and nuclear fusion reactions can all provide nuclear energy. Currently, nuclear power plants use the fission of uranium and plutonium to generate the great majority of the world’s electricity from nuclear sources. In specialized applications like radioisotope thermoelectric generators found in some space probes like Voyager 2, nuclear decay processes are employed. Thermal reactors with enriched uranium are used in nuclear power plants once through fuel cycles. When the proportion of neutron-absorbing atoms rises to a point where a chain reaction can no longer be sustained, fuel is removed. Nuclear power is the term for electricity produced by power stations that get their heat from nuclear reactions. A nuclear power plant has the same pumps, valves, steam generators, turbines, electric generators, condensers, and other equipment as a sizable coal-fired power station, except the reactor, which functions as a boiler in a fossil-fuel power plant. A little under 15% of the electricity in the world is produced by nuclear energy. The 1960s saw the construction of the first nuclear power plants, which were modest test sites. A nuclear power plant is a thermal power plant where a nuclear reactor serves as the heat source. Nuclear power plants have a carbon footprint that is substantially lower than that of fossil fuels like natural gas and brown coal and comparable to that of renewable energy sources like solar farms and wind farms. An example of a power facility that uses nuclear fission to produce electricity is a nuclear power plant. To achieve this, they combine nuclear reactors with the Rankine cycle, in which the heat from the reactor turns water into steam that runs a turbine and a generator.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
