Picture: Chernobyl Power Plant Accident 1986

Date and Time of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The Chernobyl nuclear accident occurred on Saturday, April 26, 1986, at 1:23:58 a.m. local time.

Location of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The V.I. Lenin Memorial Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station was located in Ukraine, near the town of Pripyat, which had been built to house power station employees and their families. The power station was in a wooded, marshy area near the Ukraine-Belarus border, approximately 18 kilometers northwest of the city of Chernobyl and 100 km north of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.

Background on the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station included four nuclear reactors, each capable of producing one gigawatt of electric power. At the time of the accident, the four reactors produced about 10 percent of the electricity used in Ukraine.

Construction of the Chernobyl power station began in the 1970s. The first of the four reactors was commissioned in 1977, and Reactor No. 4 began producing power in 1983. When the accident occurred in 1986, two other nuclear reactors were under construction.

The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

On April 26, 1986, the operating crew planned to test whether the Reactor No. 4 turbines could produce enough energy to keep the coolant pumps running until the emergency diesel generator was activated in case of an external power loss. During the test, power surged unexpectedly, causing an explosion and driving temperatures in the reactor to more than 2,000 degrees Celsius—melting the fuel rods, igniting the reactor’s graphite covering, and releasing a cloud of radiation into the atmosphere.

Causes of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The precise causes of the accident are still uncertain, but it is generally believed that the series of incidents that led to the explosion, fire and nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl was caused by a combination of reactor design flaws and operator error.

Loss of Life from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

By mid-2005, fewer than 60 deaths could be linked directly to Chernobyl—mostly workers who were exposed to massive radiation during the accident or children who developed thyroid cancer.

Estimates of the eventual death toll from Chernobyl vary widely. A 2005 report by the Chernobyl Forum—eight U.N. organizations—estimated the accident eventually would cause about 4,000 deaths. Greenpeace places the figure at 93,000 deaths, based on information from the Belarus National Academy of Sciences.

Physical Health Effects Linked to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The Belarus National Academy of Sciences estimates 270,000 people in the region around the accident site will develop cancer as a result of Chernobyl radiation and that 93,000 of those cases are likely to be fatal.

Another report by the Center for Independent Environmental Assessment of the Russian Academy of Sciences found a dramatic increase in mortality since 1990—60,000 deaths in Russia and an estimated 140,000 deaths in Ukraine and Belarus—probably due to Chernobyl radiation.

Psychological Effects of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

The biggest challenge facing communities still coping with the fallout of Chernobyl is the psychological damage to 5 million people in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.

"The psychological impact is now considered to be Chernobyl's biggest health consequence," said Louisa Vinton, of the UNDP. "People have been led to think of themselves as victims over the years, and are therefore more apt to take a passive approach toward their future rather than developing a system of self-sufficiency.”

Countries and Communities Affected by the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident:

Seventy percent of the radioactive fallout from Chernobyl landed in Belarus, affecting more than 3,600 towns and villages, and 2.5 million people. The radiation contaminated soil, which in turn contaminates crops that people rely on for food. Many regions in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine are likely to be contaminated for decades.

Radioactive fallout carried by the wind was later found in sheep in the UK, on clothing worn by people throughout Europe, and in rain in the United States.

Chernobyl Status and Outlook :

The Chernobyl accident cost the former Soviet Union hundreds of billions of dollars, and some observers believe it may have hastened the collapse of the Soviet government.

After the accident, Soviet authorities resettled more than 350,000 people outside the worst areas, including all 50,000 people from nearby Pripyat, but millions of people continue to live in contaminated areas.

After the breakup of the Soviet Union, many projects intended to improve life in the region were abandoned, and young people began to move away to pursue careers and build new lives in other places.

"In many villages, up to 60 percent of the population is made up of pensioners," said Vasily Nesterenko, director of the Belrad Radiation Safety and Protection Institute in Minsk. "In most of these villages, the number of people able to work is two or three times lower than normal."

After the accident, Reactor No. 4 was sealed, but the Ukranian government allowed the other three reactors to keep operating because the country needed the power they provided. Reactor No. 2 was shut down after a fire damaged it in 1991, and Reactor No. 1 was decommissioned in 1996. In November 2000, the Ukranian president shut down Reactor No. 3 in an official ceremony that finally closed the Chernobyl facility.

But Reactor No. 4, which was damaged in the 1986 explosion and fire, is still full of radioactive material encased inside a concrete barrier, called a sarcophagus, that is aging badly and needs to be replaced. Water leaking into the reactor carries radioactive material throughout the facility and threatens to seep into the groundwater.

The sarcophagus was designed to last about 30 years, and current designs would create a new shelter with a lifetime of 100 years. But radioactivity in the damaged reactor would need to be contained for 100,000 years to ensure safety. That is a challenge not only for today, but for many generations to come.

Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident Article

Location of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident


On April 26, 1986, at 1:23 a.m. local time, reactor number four at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Soviet Union exploded. Additional explosions and the resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. The fallout released was four hundred times more than had been released by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

The plume drifted over extensive parts of:

  • Western Soviet Union
  • Western Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • Northern Europe
  • Eastern North America


Large areas of Russia, Belarus, and the Ukraine were badly contaminated. The contamination resulted in the evacuation of over 300,000 people. About 60% of the radioactive fallout landed in Belarus.

It was the worst nuclear power plant disaster ever, resulting in a severe release of radioactivity into the environment. Two people died in the initial steam explosion, but most deaths from the accident were attributed to radiation.

Russia, the Ukraine, and Belarus are still dealing with the continuing decontamination and health care costs of the Chernobyl accident.

The cost of the disaster is estimated to be around $200 billion USD, making Chernobyl the costliest disaster in modern history.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), 56 direct deaths and an estimated 4,000 extra cancer deaths have been attributed to the disaster.

The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and other limited areas remain off limits. The majority of affected areas are now considered safe for economic activity and settlement.

The Accident

The accident occurred on April 26, 1986, when reactor four suffered a massive, catastrophic power excursion. This resulted in a steam explosion, tearing the top from the reactor, exposing the core, and dispersing large amounts of radioactive particulate and gaseous debris (mostly Strontium-90 and Cesium-137). This allowed oxygen to contact the hot core, which contained 1,700 tons of combustible graphite moderator. The burning graphite moderator increased the emission of the radioactive particles.

The radioactivity was not contained by any type of containment vessel, and radioactive particles were carried by the wind across international borders.

Crisis Management

Radiation Levels

The radiation levels in the worst-hit areas of the reactor building are estimated to have been 5.6 rontgen per second (R/s), or 20,000 R/hr. A lethal dose is around 500 rontgen over 5 hours; some workers received fatal doses within several minutes.

Due to faulty dosimeters (equipment to measure rontgens) or dosimeters which only read low levels of rontogens, the reactor crew chief assumed that the reactor was intact. Operating under this assumption, the chief and his crew stayed in the reactor building until morning trying to pump water into the reactor.

None wore protective gear, and most died from radiation exposure within three weeks.

Fire Containment

Shortly after the accident, firefighters arrived to try to extinguish the fire. They were not told how dangerous the smoke and debris were. They were not told that the fire involved the reactor.

The fires were extinguished by 5 a.m., but many firefighters received high doses of radiation. The fire inside reactor no. 4 continued to burn until May 10, 1986. It was finally extinguished by dropping tons of sand, lead, and clay onto the burning reactor and injecting liquid nitrogen.

Causes of the Disaster

There were two official explanations of the accident:

  • Flawed operators explanation
    Placed the blame on the power plant operators
  • Flawed design explanation
    Placed the blame on flaws in the reactor design, especially the control rods


Effects of the Disaster

  • International spread of radioactivity
  • Radioactive release
  • Human cost
    237 people suffered from acute radiation sickness
    31 died within the first 3 months after the disaster
    135,000 evacuated from the area
  • Environmental costs
    Radioactive contamination of aquatic systems
    Four square kilometers of pine forest in the immediate vicinity of the reactor turned brown and died
    Some animals in the worst-hit areas died or stopped reproducing


Chernobyl After the Disaster

All work on the unfinished reactors at Chernobyl halted in 1989. A fire broke out in reactor 2 in 1991, resulting in it being taken off-line. Reactor 1 was decommissioned in 1996. Reactor 3 was turned off in 2000, effectively shutting down the entire plant.

Disaster's Effect on Human Health

· 57 direct deaths in the accident itself

· 4,000 additional cancer cases due to the accident

· Primarily thyroid cancer

· No increase in the rate of birth defects or abnormalities

· No increase in solid cancers

· Possibility of tens of thousands of cases of thyroid cancer in the future.

Video of How Hydroelectric Power Works


Video of How Hydroelectric Power Works

Hydroelectricity energy is a renewable energy source dependent upon the hydrologic cycle of water, which involves evaporation, precipitation and the flow of water due to gravity. Canada has abundant water resources and a geography that provides many opportunities to produce low-cost energy. In fact, accessing the energy from flowing waters has played an important role in the economic and social development of Canada for the past three centuries.

What is hydroelectricity according to wikipedia?

The World Largest Hydroelectricity Three George Dam

Hydroelectricity is electricity generated by hydropower, i.e., the production of power through use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy. Once a hydroelectric complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and has a considerably lower output level of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) than fossil fuel powered energy plants. Worldwide, hydroelectricity supplied an estimated 816 GWe in 2005. This was approximately 20% of the world's electricity, and accounted for about 88% of electricity from renewable sources.

Hydroelectricity - source from thecanadianencyclopedia

Hydroelectricity is obtained from the energy contained in falling water; it is a renewable, comparatively nonpolluting energy source and Canada's largest source of electric power generation. In N America in the 1850s the energy content of moving water was exploited through the use of small-capacity waterwheels and turbines for the direct drive of machinery, for example, in gristmills and sawmills. By the 1860s many hundreds of turbines, ranging up to 1000 HP capacity, were manufactured annually in the US and by the early 1870s the production of at least one Canadian factory was averaging about 20 machines per year. Hydroelectricity was introduced in the 1880s, soon after Thomas Edison began manufacturing direct-current (DC) electric generators, which were initially belt driven by steam engines. It was not long before enterprising mill owners began to install generators of up to 10-12 kW capacity, with belt drives from existing mill turbines, to provide electric lighting in the mills and adjacent premises.

Hydroelectricity Explained

Hydroelectricity is another term for power generated by harnessing the power of moving water. Not necessarily falling water, just moving water. There are many famous such generating stations in the world, not the least of them at Niagara Falls, Grand Coulee and Boulder Dam. These are just a few of the many examples of energy produced by falling water. On the other hand, a small mill set in the rapids of a fast-moving stream is also an example of it in action, on a lesser scale. The truth is that any steady current of flowing water from a river or other waterway can be converted to power.

What is Coal Ash?

What is Coal Ash?

Coal combustion byproducts (CCBs) are considered to be four distinct and extremely different materials.

FLY ASH

Fly ash is the finest of coal ash particles. It is called "fly" ash because it is transported from the combustion chamber by exhaust gases. Fly ash is the fine powder formed from the mineral matter in coal, consisting of the noncombustible matter in coal plus a small amount of carbon that remains from incomplete combustion. Fly ash is generally light tan in color and consists mostly of silt-sized and clay-sized glassy spheres. This gives fly ash a consistency somewhat like talcum powder. Properties of fly ash vary significantly with coal composition and plant-operating conditions.

Fly ash can be referred to as either cementitious or pozzolanic. A cementitious material is one that hardens when mixed with water. A pozzolanic material will also harden with water but only after activation with an alkaline substance such as lime. These cementitious and pozzolanic properties are what make some fly ashes useful for cement replacement in concrete and many other building applications.

BOTTOM ASH

Coal bottom ash and fly ash are quite different physically, mineralogically, and chemically. Bottom ash is a coarse, granular, incombustible byproduct that is collected from the bottom of furnaces that burn coal for the generation of steam, the production of electric power, or both. Bottom ash is coarser than fly ash, with grain sizes spanning from fine sand to fine gravel. The type of byproduct produced depends on the type of furnace used to burn the coal.

BOILER SLAG

Boiler slag is coarser than conventional fly ash and is formed in cyclone boilers, which produce a molten ash that is cooled with water. Boiler slag is generally a black granular material with numerous engineering uses.

FGD GYPSUM

Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum is also known as scrubber gypsum. FGD gypsum is the byproduct of an air pollution control system that removes sulfur from the flue gas in calcium-based scrubbing systems. It is produced by employing forced oxidation in the scrubber and is composed mostly of calcium sulfate. FGD gypsum is most commonly used for agricultural purposes and for wallboard production.

Video - How a coal power station works?



Video - How a coal power station works?

Coal shipment from coal jetty transfered to the coal stockyard. There is a large machine called stacker reclaimer, arranged the coal into the storage piles. A series of conveyor belt transport the coal to the generating plant where it goes to the bunker hopper for temporary storage before it was introduced to bowl milling. Coal will be pulverized or; coal is grinded to a fine powder more less 70 microns prior to burning. The pulverized coal is mix with air and is feeded to the furnace combustion that is surrounding by boiler tube filled with purified water. The burning coal heats the purified water inside the boiler tube to the steam. The steam is transfered under high pressure and high speed throughout the pipe turbine. This pressure flow pushes the blade of turbine to spin. Turbine is connected to the generator where the spinning of the turbine will causes a shaft to turn inside generator and create electricity. The producing of the electricity that can be step up voltage through the station transformer and send from the station across transmission line. The steam from the turbine (exhausted) condense back to the purified water using cooling water from the forebay or seawater and pump back to the boiler where it's reheated back to continue the process again.

Hydroelectricity Dam or Hydroelectricity Power Station

Dam Hydroelectricity Description


Area of Dam Hydroelectricity Station


Align Center
Dam Hydroelectricity Major Components


Dam Hydroelectricity Picture

How the Dam hydroelectric works? The water is held in a reservoir as per picture above (Dam Hydroelectricity), behind the dam, the water close to the control gates is where the intake is, and when the control gates open, the water rushes through the penstock and turns the turbine. After the water does so, it goes through the outflow into the river. The turbine spins the generator, and the electricity goes to the transformer in the powerhouse. Then the transformer transforms the electricity into a usable form, and the electricity travels through the power lines and goes to homes and businesses.

One more thing that is needed is location. To build a dam there has to be valleys and rivers. This will help with the building of the dam. There has to be great location or it won’t work. The land cannot be flat, or there is no way to build a dam. Canada, USA, the former USSR, Brazil, China, Norway, Japan, Sweden, India, and France all use hydroelectric energy. These countries are in order from the largest number of kilowatts in billions that are used each year.

There are advantages and disadvantages of using hydroelectricity energy. Here are some of the advantages. It is renewable, clean, non-polluting, and it prevents floods. Not all dams produce electricity, but they prevent flooding, and others do both.

As said, there are advantages of using hydroelectricity energy. There are disadvantages too. Here are some of the disadvantages. Hydroelectricity dams can harm many species that live on the area, the land around the dam can be destroyed, and the furious turbines will kill the fish.

As said before, dam hydroelectricity energy is one of many sources of electricity in the world. The future of hydroelectricity power is looking like it will still be used in the next century or more, because the world will still have plenty of running water and the need for lots of non-polluting energy.

How a Coal-fired Power Plant works

Coal Fired Power Plant Process

1. Coal Supply

  • Coal from the mine is delivered to the coal hopper, where it is crushed to five centimetres (2 inches) in size.
  • The coal is processed and delivered by a conveyor belt to the generating plant.

2. Pulverizer

  • The coal is then pulverized, or crushed, to a fine powder, mixed with air and blown into the boiler, or furnace for combustion.

3. Boiler

  • The coal / air mixture ignites instantly in the boiler.
  • Millions of litres of purified water are pumped through tubes inside the boiler.
  • Intense heat from the burning coal turns the purified water in the boiler tubes into steam, which spins the turbine (see number four) to create electricity.

4. Precipitator, stack

  • Burning coal produces carbon dioxide (CO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
  • These gases are vented from the boiler.
  • Bottom ash, which is made of coarse fragments that fall to the bottom of the boiler, is removed.
  • Fly ash, which is very light, exits the boiler along with the hot gases.
  • An electrostatic precipitator (a huge air filter) removes 99.4 per cent of fly ash before the flue gases are dispersed into the atmosphere.

5. Turbine, generator

  • Water in the boiler tubes picks up heat from the boiler and turns into steam.
  • The high-pressure steam from the boiler passes into the turbine (a massive drum with thousands of propeller blades).
  • Once the steam hits the turbine blades, it causes the turbine to spin rapidly.
  • The spinning turbine causes a shaft to turn inside the generator, creating an electric current.

6. Condensers and the cooling water system

  • Cooling water is drawn into the plant and circulated through condensers, which cools steam discharged from the turbine.
  • Steam from the turbine also passes through the condensers in separate pipes from cooling water.
  • The cold water is warmed by the steam, which condenses back into pure water and circulates back to the boiler to begin the process of generating electricity again.
  • Cooling water, now warm from the heat exchange in the condensers, is released from the plant.

7. Water treatment plant: water purification

  • To reduce corrosion, water must be purified for use in the boiler tubes.
  • Other wastewater systems within the plant collect water used to clean pipes and other equipment, and sludge from the water purification process and other processes.
  • Waste water is pumped out of the plant and into the holding ponds.

8. Precipitator, Ash systems

  • Ash that builds up on the precipitator's plates is vibrated off and collected in large hoppers or bins.
  • Fly ash and bottom ash are removed from the plants and hauled to disposal sites or ash lagoons.
  • Depending on the market demand, fly ash produced from TransAlta's three plants is sold to the cement industry for construction.

9. Substation, transformer, transmission lines

  • Once the electricity is generated, transformers increase the voltage so it can be carried across the transmission lines.
  • Once electricity is delivered to substations in cities and towns, the voltage flowing into the distribution lines is reduced, and then reduced again to distribute electricity to customers.

Is the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic the best handset Nokia has ever launched?

GLOBAL – The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is arguably an unlikely candidate for such a bold question, especially when mentioned in the same breath as milestone mobiles of the past few years including the N95 and E71. But could Nokia’s first touchscreen caller actually be the best handset Nokia has ever released?

Read on to examine the evidence (and gut feelings), and to lay down your opinions.

This question has manifested itself as a result of a number of curious colliding factors. For starters, no matter who I’ve been speaking to of late (both within and outside of Nokia) the 5800 XpressMusic is consistently and unreservedly being championed along the lines of an ‘instant icon’ or ‘the best handset Nokia has released in years’. Likewise, one friend went into Carphone Warehouse here in the UK, and was told by the guy behind the counter that all they were selling was 5800s. Of course that doesn’t earn the 5800 this particular gold star of all-time greatness. Nonetheless, there’s my personal exhibit A.

Moving onto exhibit B, 1 million of these devices were shipped within the first two months of it going on sale, proof of its instant popularity.

Other evidence rears its head in the sheer amount of content that has been created by folks online surrounding the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic – in a little over 3 months almost 10 million search entries have appeared on Google relating to Nokia’s touchscreen music device. Compare that to the N95, which has attracted almost 34 million search results pages in over two years, and it becomes clear that the 5800 is a talking point on a serious scale.

Plus, we recently ran a poll to find out which new Nokia music phone was your favourite, which saw the 5800 XpressMusic go up against the newer 5730 XpressMusic, the Nokia 5630 XpressMusic, the Nokia 5330 XpressMusic and the Nokia 5030. Now it didn’t just win this poll, it annihilated its rivals to stomp into the top slot, capturing 56 per cent of the vote, more than double that of the 5730 XpressMusic. To win so convincingly was interesting. Of course, this was a poll of only a few recent handsets, yet it says something doesn’t it?

So is the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic the best handset Nokia has ever launched?

The 5800 runs symbian s60 which means that you have the ability to install any number of programs on it, such as a different internet browser or multimedia player. Apple does not allow apps in the app store that mimic the official apps. there are internet browsers available for the 5800 that have embedded flash. the safari browser on the iphone is html only.

21) Experience
Nokia: Ages of experience, hundreds of success stories and dozens of smart handsets in current portfolio. Nokia has about 40% market share with the No.1 spot with no close competitors. Certainly the king when it comes to brand value, service and experience.
Apple: First phone ever launched by Apple is Iphone, no prior experience in the telecom market. It’s a novice in the market with a very less market share despite having millions of Iphone sold.

Verdict: Almost all the major brands around the world like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc launched their touchscreen smartphones with a hope to beat Apple’s Iphone. No-one came close to Iphone when it comes to looks, style, feel and features.
This is the first time a tech giant like Nokia has hit it hard with its first true touchscreen smartphone. Nokia 5800 is a real Iphone killer with way ahead features, perfect looks and great price. Bravo Nokia, Well Done!!

Both looks great! Youuuu..???

LG ARENA KM900 - I like this!

LG ARENA KM900
Right out of the box the LG Arena looks trendy, with the dark grey polished metal exterior giving the phone a luxurious feel.

The phone also boasts myriad of wireless connectivity options including, quad-band GSM, EDGE, HSDPA, Bluetooth with A2DP profile and WiFi 802.11b/g.
