The Fires of Nuclear Fission
Instalasi tenaga nuklir adalah instalasi yang dijalankan berdasarkan konsep reaksi fisi : Yaitu proses pemecahan suatu inti menjadi inti yang lebih kecil, yang biasanya dilakukan dengan cara penembakan terhadap target inti dengan neutron. Produk yang dihasilkan dari reaksi inti adalah inti dengan massa yang lebih rendah.
Reaksi fisi antara inti uranium ( 235 U ) dengan neutron
REAKSI FISI Jika jumlah massa sebelum reaksi sama dengan massa sesudah reaksi, dari mana asal energi ? Hukum Kekekalan massa dan energi
REAKSI FISI Massa atom U-235 adalah amu. Massa neutron amu Total reaktan massanya adalah amu Massa atom Kr-92 adalah amu. Massa atom Ba-141 adalah amu. Massa 3 inti neutron adalah amu Total produk adalah amu Massa yang hilang adalah amu yang dirubah menjadi energi
Massa dapat dirubah menjadi energi berdasarkan persamaan Einstein : E = mc 2 E = Energi 1 Joule = 1 kg m 2 /s 2 m = massa c = kecepatan cahaya c 2 = (3.0 x 10 8 m/s) 2 = 9.0 x m 2 /s 2 m = 1 g E = (10 -3 )(9.0 x ) kg m 2 /s 2 E = 9.0 x kg m 2 /s 2 = 9.0 x Joule Small changes in mass make for HUGE changes in energy.
Energi yang dihasilkan oleh massa 1 gram uranium E = 9.0 x kg m 2 /s 2 = 9.0 x kJoule Energi ini setara dengan energi yang dilepaskan oleh 22 metrik kilo ton dari bom TNT Jenis Bahan BakarKapasitas Panas ( kJ /g) Antracite (coal)30.5 Bituminous (coal)30.7 Sub-bituminous (coal)24.0 Lignite (brown coal)16,2 Kayu14.1 Hitung berapa jumlah bahan bakar coal atau kayu yang dibutukan untuk Menghasilkan sejumlah energi yang setara dengan energi yang dihasilkan oleh 1 gram uranium ?

(left) Nuclear fuel pellets that are ready for fuel assembly completion. (right) A typical nuclear fuel pellet. Bahan bakar Nuklir
Made from uranium core Enriched to 3% of radioactive isotope U-235. Made into pellets, size of pencil, energy equivalent to 1 ton of coal. Pellets are packed into large pipes-fuel rods. Rods are grouped together into fuel assemblies, these assemblies are placed into reactor core Bahan bakar Nuklir
Control rods placed between rods. Control rods moved in and out of the assemblies, absorbing neutrons which trigger the chain reaction. Water circulates through the assemblies, removing the heat, keeping the rods from melting. Kontrol Reaksi Nuklir
Light water reactors 85% of world’s nuclear generated electricity (100% in US). High inefficient in terms of energy conversion (up to 83% lost as waste heat). There are three varieties of light water reactors : The pressurized water reactor (PWR), The boiling water reactor (BWR), and The supercritical water reactor (SCWR).
Spent Fuel rods After about 3-4 years of use, the Fuel rods become spent-level of fission drops beneath a certain level. Rods are taken out of reactor stored nearby in water filled pools or dry casks. Stored until they cool down enough to be shipped for permanent storage or to be recycled. These storage facilities are next to the reactor plants, vulnerable to terrorist attack or accidents
Spent Fuel Reprocessing The spent fuel rods are sent to a facility which separates plutonium from spent fuel for further use as a new generation of fuel or as material used to make atomic weapons. 1.First the fuel is chopped up, by remote control, behind heavy lead shielding. 2.These chopped-up pieces are then dissolved in boiling nitric acid, releasing radioactive gases in the process. 3.The plutonium is separated from the acid solution by chemical means, leaving large quantities of high-level radioactive liquid waste and sludge behind. 4.After it has cooled down for several years, this liquid waste will have to be solidified for ultimate disposal, while the separated plutonium is fabricated into nuclear fuel or nuclear weapons.
Nuclear Fuel Cycle Fuel assemblies Decommissioning of reactor Enrichment of UF 6 Reactor Fuel fabrication (conversion of enriched UF 6 to UO to UO 2 and fabrication of fuel assemblies) Temporary storage of spent fuel assemblies underwater or in dry casks Conversion of U 3 O 8 to UF 6 Spent fuel reprocessing Low-level radiation with long half-life Geologic disposal of moderate- and high- level radioactive wastes Open fuel cycle today Recycling of nuclear fuel
Worst Commercial Nuclear Power Plant Accident in the U.S. Three Mile Island March 29, Near Harrisburg, PA, U.S. Nuclear reactor lost its coolant. Led to a partial uncovering and melting of the radioactive core. Unknown amounts of radioactivity escaped. People fled the area. Increased public concerns for safet Led to improved safety regulations in the U.S.
Worst Nuclear Power Plant Accident in the World Chernobyl April 26, In Chernobyl, Ukraine. Series of explosions caused the roof of a reactor building to blow off. Partial meltdown and fire for 10 days. Huge radioactive cloud spread over many countries and eventually the world. 350,000 people left their homes. Effects on human health, water supply, and agriculture.

Recent Nuclear Power Plant Accident in The World Fukushima March 11, In Fukushima, Japan. A series of ongoing equipment failures and releases of radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, following the 9.0 magnitude Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March Partial meltdown and fire for 10 days. Experts consider it to be the second largest nuclear accident after the Chernobyl disaster, but more complex as multiple reactors are involved.

KEUNTUNGAN Dampak lingkungannya rendah Resiko atas terjadinya kecelakaan relatif rendah KERUGIAN Biaya tinggi Effisiensi biaya bersihnya adalah rendah Adanya limbah radioaktif dengan umur yang lama Mudah untuk disabotase dan resikonya tinggi Sumber yang potensial untuk penyebaran senjata nuklir
Conventional Nuclear Fuel Cycle Large fuel supply Advantages Low environmental impact (without accidents) Emits 1/6 as much CO 2 as coal Moderate land disruption and water pollution (without accidents) Moderate land use Low risk of accidents because of multiple safety systems (except for Chernobyl-type reactors) Disadvantages Ample supply of uranium Low net energy yield Low air pollution Low CO 2 emissions Much lower land disruption from surface mining Moderate land use High cost (even with huge subsidies)
Coal Energy vs Nuclear Energy High land use Coal Ample supply High net energy yield Very high air pollution High CO 2 emissions High land disruption from surface mining Low cost (with huge subsidies) Nuclear Ample supply of uranium Low net energy yield Low air pollution Low CO 2 emissions Much lower land disruption from surface mining Moderate land use High cost (even with huge subsidies)
Nuclear Power Plants Are Vulnerable to Terrorists Acts Explosions or meltdowns possible at the power plants. Storage pools and casks are more vulnerable to attack. 60 countries have or have the ability to build nuclear weapons.
Dealing with Radioactive Wastes Produced by Nuclear Power Is a Difficult Problem High-level radioactive wastes Must be stored safely for 10,000–240,000 years. Where to store it? Deep burial: safest and cheapest option. Transportation concerns. Would any method of burial last long enough? There is still no facility: NIMBY scenario. Can the harmful isotopes be changed into harmless isotopes? (working on it, $$$).
Can Nuclear Power Lessen Dependence on Imported Oil, Reduce Global Warming? Nuclear power plants: no CO 2 emission. Nuclear fuel cycle: emits CO 2. Opposing views on nuclear power and global warming: Nuclear power advocates : study by MIT researchers. 2007: Oxford Research Group.
Proponents of nuclear power: Fund more research and development. Pilot-plant testing of potentially cheaper and safer reactors. Test breeder fission and nuclear fusion. Opponents of nuclear power: Fund rapid development of energy efficient and renewable energy resources.
“ Is the power of the future and always will be”. Still in the laboratory phase after 50 years of research and $34 billion dollars : U.S., China, Russia, Japan, South Korea, and European Union; Will build a large-scale experimental nuclear fusion reactor by 2040.
Decommission or retire the power plant. Some options: Dismantle the plant and safely store the radioactive materials. Enclose the plant behind a physical barrier with full-time security until a storage facility has been built. Enclose the plant in a tomb and monitor this for thousands of years.
What is going on to The Nuclear Power Plant Slowest-growing energy source and expected to decline more. Why? Economics. Poor management. Low net yield of energy of the nuclear fuel cycle. Safety concerns. Need for greater government subsidies. Concerns of transporting uranium.
