Nuclear Power Plants are the power plants which use nuclear fuels to generate electricity. A nuclear plant works on a similar way as that of a thermal power plant, the main difference is that the fuel used to generate heat for the production of steam to drive the turbines that produce electricity. A nuclear plant uses Uranium or Plutonium as a fuel for heat production through fission reaction. The heat energy is used to boil the water for the production of steam in a steam generator.
