The journal follows double blind peer review process. Manuscripts submitted by authors will be evaluated on Tracking System by Editors & reviewers of particular expertise in the same field to ensure that the published articles are of high quality with accurate and reliable information & data, which reflect solid scholarship. Editors can manage the whole submission, review, revision and publishing process, however at least two independent reviewer's approval followed by the Editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript.
2018 Journal Impact Factor is the ratio of the number of citations achieved in the year 2018 based on Google Search and Google Scholar Citations to the total number of articles published in the last two years i.e. in 2016 and 2017. Impact factor measures the quality of the Journal.
If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2016 and 2017, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2018 then, impact factor = Y/X.
The following classifications and topics related with it will be considered for publication in JNPGT.
Nuclear Power Generation
Power Generation Technology
The technique of generating power or energy in any form by exhausting the fuel or nucleus are termed as power generation technology. This technology is used in power stations using electromechanical generators.
In electricity generation, a generator is a device that converts mechanical power into electrical power for use in an external circuit. Sources of mechanical energy include steam turbines, gas turbines, water turbines, internal combustion engines, wind turbines and even hand cranks. Most power stations contain one or more generators, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into three-phase electric power. The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity. Cleaner sources include nuclear power, and an increasing use of renewables such as solar, wind, wave and hydroelectric.
Quantum physics including quantum field theory, is a fundamental theory in physics which describes nature at the smallest – including atomic and subatomic – scales. It underlies the mathematical framework of many fields of physics and chemistry, including atomic physics, molecular physics, particle physics, nuclear chemistry, and nuclear physics. Quantum theory is needed for understanding nuclear structure.
A nuclear reactor is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain reaction. Nuclear reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in nuclear marine propulsion. In a nuclear power reactor, the energy released is used as heat to make steam to generate electricity. The principles for using nuclear power to produce electricity are the same for most types of reactor. The energy released from continuous fission of the atoms of the fuel is harnessed as heat in either a gas or water, and is used to produce steam.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
The branch of fluid mechanics which deals with the numerical analysis and algorithms to solve the problems involving fluid flow are termed as Computational Fluid Dynamics. It utilizes applied mathematics, physics and computational software.
The accidents which occur in the nuclear power plant involving the nuclear reactor and causes significant consequesnces to the peoples lives, to the environment & the facility are termed as nuclear accidents.
The nuclear fuel cycle refers to the progression of nuclear fuel through different atages from front end to the back end. If the spent fuel is reprocessed, it is called closed fuel cycle and if not reprocessed, then called open fuel cycle.
The power station in which electricity is generated by using hydropower is termed as hydroelectric power station. It is widely used source of renewable energy. The Asia-pacific region genearates 32% of the global hydropower. The energy or power which is obtained at the end is termed as hydroelectric power.
The kind of power plant in which the steam is utilized to run a turbine which in turn drives an electrical generator is termed as Thermal Power Stations. Generally fossil fuel resources are used to get the water heated & become steam. The power which is obtained as a result is termed as thermal power.
The energy obtained after nuclear fusion or fission of atomic nuclei at very high temperature is termed as thermonuclear energy. The energy emitted is a rich source of power & is termed as atomic energy. A common example is hydrogen bomb.
Nuclear Power Plant Design
The design of a nuclear power plant is very crucial & differs vastly depending upon its type & need. The optimization & scale up is also very important and propoer information might save a lot of cost for the engineers.
Nuclear Reactor Safety
The nuclear reactor safety is very important in accordance with the people lives associated with it. The safety protocols to be audited in a timely manner. It requires intelligent planning, proper design with conservative margins and back-up systems, high-quality components and a well-developed safety culture in operations.
The design of a reactor is very crucial & differs vastly depending upon its type & need. The optimization & scale up is also very important and propoer information might save a lot of cost for the engineers.
Reactor Engineering refers to the engineering works carried out in a nuclear reactor to make the reactor available at its optimum working state as well as to prevent any situations or danger involving the fission process.
The research involving the joining of two molecules after colliding at a very high speed are called fusion research. Here at the end a new type of atomic nucleus is formed after fusion of two nucleus.
Nuclear security deals with the prevention, response to the unauthorized access, theft, sabotage or an illegal transfer involving the nuclear materials. It also takes care of the propoer disposal of radioactive & nuclear wastes to make sure the well being of society.
Nuclear Waste Management
Radioactive Waste Management
Nuclear chemistry is the branch of chemistry which deals with the study of radioactivity, nuclear transmutation & processes. It also involves the study of the propoerties of the nuclear materials at different stages.
The materials hich are associate with or utilized in the process of nuclear energy or power generation are termed as nuclear materials. These are generally metals like uranium, plutonium, thorium etc.
