Answer 1. The only shunt reactors I know are used on transmission lines to alter power factor. This is nothing to do with the nuclear reactor in a power plant.
Answer 2. I agree. Shunt reactors are use on transmission line and EHV to boost voltage, to generate VARs and for power factor correction.
Well, as nuclear reactors are nuclear reactors, nuclear reactors are not used inside nuclear reactors.
Fast neutrons are used already in nuclear reactors that called fast nuclear reactors and/or fast breeder reactors.
Uranium and plutonium are both actinides that are used in nuclear reactors.
We use nuclear fission in nuclear reactors to tap nuclear energy.
Current nuclear reactors rely on nuclear fission as their nuclear reaction.
Shunt reactor are generally employed at the end of long transmission line. During charging of line due to ferranti effect receiving end voltage increases dangerously to control this shunt reactors are used.
No, at least not for power reactors
There may be Radium, Thorium, Uranium or even Plutonium which can be used in nuclear reactors.
No substitute for nuclear power reactors especially if there is no available fossil fuel.
Nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons
Uranium is used as nuclear fuel in nuclear reactors.
No nuclear fusion reactors is currently used on commercial basis.
No, nuclear fission operates all nuclear reactors. If they are power plant reactors it is used to generate electricity.
The control rods, which are made of a neutron absorbing material like boron, are used in nuclear reactors.
The primary use of nuclear reactors is to produce electricity, which is the only way to use nuclear energy on a large scale. Small reactors are used for research, and are also used to produce radioisotopes for medical and industrial use. Reactors are also used to power some naval vessels and submarines. Reactors have also been used to produce plutonium and tritium needed to make nuclear weapons.
Water and graphite are often thought of as moderators as regards nuclear reactors.
Radioisotopes for many uses (e.g. medical, industrial, scientific) are produced in nuclear reactors.
In test reactors.
In some reactors it is, depends on the design.
Shunt reactors are the inductors connected across the power line for power factor correction.The reactors injects reactive power in the transmission line for voltage compensation. The only disvantage of this shunt reactors is that it shorts whenever high voltage or transients occurs.Only stepped variation of the reactive power is possible.
The most common coolant used in nuclear reactors is water. There are light water reactors (using "regular" water), and the heavy water kind of reactor.
Nuclear reactors use nuclear fission.
Typically, Uranium-235 is used as fuel in nuclear reactors.
Yes, uranium is used as nuclear fuel in nuclear power reactors.
