A nuclear power plant is a thermal power station in which the heat source is a
nuclear reactor. As is typical in all conventional thermal power stations the heat is
In a nuclear-fueled power plant – much like a fossil-fueled power plant – water is
turned into steam, which in turn drives turbine generators to produce electricity.
