Nuclear Power Plants: When Backup Systems Fail

Nuclear Power Plants: When Backup Systems Fail

The 104 U.S. nuclear power plants are some of the most sophisticated and complex energy systems ever designed. However any complex system, no matter how well it is designed and engineered, cannot be deemed failure-proof. The emergency power supplies of a nuclear power plant are built with several layers of redundancy such as diesel generators…
