Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor - Power Generation

Power Generation

The LFTR with a high operating temperature of 700 degrees Celsius can operate at a thermal efficiency to electrical of 45%. This is higher than today's light water reactors (LWRs) that are at 32–36% thermal to electrical efficiency.

Famous quotes containing the words generation and/or power:

    We need to encourage members of this next generation to become all that they can become, not try to force them to become what we want them to become. . . . You and I can’t even begin to dream the dreams this next generation is going to dream, or answer the questions that will be put to them.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    Just what is the civil law? What neither influence can affect, nor power break, nor money corrupt: were it to be suppressed or even merely ignored or inadequately observed, no one would feel safe about anything, whether his own possessions, the inheritance he expects from his father, or the bequests he makes to his children.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)
