Abstract

Underground nuclear power plants have recently been proposed in the United States and in other countries. The main reason for placing a nuclear power plant underground is the potential increase in safety. This paper tries to assess objectively the impact of an underground nuclear power plant on plant layout and structure design. A configuration of an underground modular power plant with no shared facilities, which would minimize the impact on the systems and structures, is proposed. The configuration presented in this paper is based on a recent study performed for the California Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission.
