Abstract

The paper examines the most significant technical and economical indications which are emerging from design, construction and operation of the first full size nuclear power plants and which may be most helpful in shaping future additions to nuclear capacity, with particular regard to the stituation existing in Italy. The present status of manufacturers' technology and its continuous development in the course of existing projects have shown a positive trend toward reduction of both fuel-cycle and plant-component costs. This is further favoured by the increasing tendency toward bigger plant sizes and by the fact that power forecasting analyses of the electrical network suggest the opportunity of installing units of higher capacity for nuclear than for conventional plants on the basis of predicted changes in energy production expenses due to the addition of such new units. Concerning the design, construction and testing experience of existing types of stations, the paper reviews the main factors to take into account in future planning also in the light of construction and testing schedules. A certain emphasis is given to the problem of containment, because of the rewards on plant location which can be made possible by the development of very safe containers with little or  More>>

abstractNote = {The paper examines the most significant technical and economical indications which are emerging from design, construction and operation of the first full size nuclear power plants and which may be most helpful in shaping future additions to nuclear capacity, with particular regard to the stituation existing in Italy. The present status of manufacturers' technology and its continuous development in the course of existing projects have shown a positive trend toward reduction of both fuel-cycle and plant-component costs. This is further favoured by the increasing tendency toward bigger plant sizes and by the fact that power forecasting analyses of the electrical network suggest the opportunity of installing units of higher capacity for nuclear than for conventional plants on the basis of predicted changes in energy production expenses due to the addition of such new units. Concerning the design, construction and testing experience of existing types of stations, the paper reviews the main factors to take into account in future planning also in the light of construction and testing schedules. A certain emphasis is given to the problem of containment, because of the rewards on plant location which can be made possible by the development of very safe containers with little or no economic penalty, also taking advantage of the specific Italian situation on certain aspects of this problem. Concerning the operation experience of proven station types, the paper discusses their ability to meet network requirements and their availability, also in connection with the increasing role of nuclear capacity which is being planned in the country. Finally, the paper stresses the importance of the problem of data collection and interpretation from the three power stations now starting operation in Italy in assisting the planning of next installations. Hint is given to longer-range fuel-cycle planning on the basis of the existing framework. (author) [French] L'auteur expose les principaux enseignements qui ont ete fournis, aux points de vue technique et economique, par l'etude, la construction et l'exploitation des premieres centrales nucleaires, et qui peuvent etre particulierement utiles pour l'implantation de nouvelles centrales de ce genre dans l'avenir, notamment eu egard aux conditions qui regnent en Italie. La technologie actuelle des reacteurs et les progres qu'elle continue de faire revelent une tendance marquee vers la reduction du cout, non seulement des cycles de combustible, mais aussi des elements de la centrale. Cette evolution se trouve d'ailleurs favorisee par la tendance croissante a construire des centrales plus grandes et par le fait que l'etude du developpement du reseau electrique semble indiquer que, sur le plan economique, il y a plus d' avantage ainstaller des centrales nucleaires plus puissantes que d'augmenter la puissance des centrales classiques. Se fondant sur l'experience acquise concernant l'etu de, la construction et l'essai des divers types de centrales existantes, l'auteur donne un apercu des principaux facteurs dont il convient de tenir compte lors de l'etablissement des programmes futurs. Il insiste sur le probleme de l'isolement, vu les incidences favorables que peut avoir sur le choix du site de la centrale la mise au point d'ecrans de protection tres surs, qui puissent etre construits sans augmentation sensible du prix de revient, en tirant notamment parti, pour resoudre certains aspects de ce probleme, des conditions particulieres qui se trouvent reunies en Italie. Quant a l'experience du fonctionnement de certaines centrales d'un modele eprouve, l'auteur examine dans quelle mesure ces installations peuvent etre construites sans difficulte et satisfaire la demande du reseau; il se refere ici egalement au role croissant qu'il est prevu d'attribuer a l'energie d'origine nucleaire en Italie. Enfin, l'auteur souligne a quel point le rassemblement et l'interpretation des donnees relatives aux trois centrales, qui doivent incessamment entrer en service en Italie, aideraient a etablir les plans des installations futures. Il suggere la possibilite de prevoir des maintenant des cycles de combustible pour une plus longue periode. (author) [Spanish] En la memoria se examinan las principales consideraciones de caracter tecnico y eco nomico relativas al diseno, construccion y explotacion de las primeras centrales nucleoelectricas a plena escala, y que mas pueden ayudar a preparar los planes futuros de expansion nuclear, con especial referencia a las condiciones que reinan en Italia. El estado actual de la tecnologia de los reactores y su evolucion continua en la ejecucion de los proyectos hasta ahora realizados, muestra una neta tendencia hacia la reduccion de los costos del ciclo de combustible y de los elementos componentes de las centrales. Contribuye a esta evolucion la tendencia cada vez mas acusada a construir centrales de mayores dimensiones, y el hecho de que las previsiones acerca de las condiciones futuras de la red electrica sugieren la conveniencia de instalar centrales nucleares de mayor capacidad que las centrales clasicas, en razon de la disminucion que experimentaran los gastos de produccion gracias a la puesta en servicio de esas nuevas unidades. En lo que se refiere a la experiencia adquirida en e l diseno, construccion y pruebas de las centrales en funcionamiento, la memoria estudia los principales factores que han de tenerse en cuenta en la preparacion de planes para el futuro, tambien desde e l punto de vista de los programas de construccion y de pruebas. El autor insiste en el problema del confinamiento, en razon de la favorable influencia que sobre la elecion del emplazamiento de las centrales puede ejercer el perfeccionamiento de blindajes muy seguros, que podrian construirse sin aumento sensible del costo, teniendo en cuenta la especial situacion de Italia en lo que se refiere a ciertos aspectos del problema. En cuanto a la experiencia adquirida en la explotacion de centrales de tipo bien conocido, la memoria estudia en que medida estas instalaciones pueden construirse sin dificultades y satisfacer la demanda de la red; tambien en este aspecto se refiere al creciente papel que cabe atribuir en Italia a la energia nucleoelectrica. Por ultimo, la memoria re calca hasta que punto el acopio y la interpretacion de los datos relativos a las tres centrales nucleares que ahora comienzan a funcionar en Italia facilitarian el proyecto de instalaciones futuras. Alude a la posibilidad de establecer desde ya ciclos de combustible mas extensos.
