Title: Light water reactor with condensing steam generator

Abstract

A light water reactor for generating power that utilizes circulation of a primary coolant at saturation pressure to cool a nuclear core and transfer heat from the core to a secondary coolant through one or more heat exchangers of a condensing steam generator. The secondary coolant, once heated can drive power generation equipment, such as steam turbines or otherwise, before being condensed and returned to the one or more heat exchangers.
