ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the move of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to conduct a study of the safety systems of nuclear power plants in the U.S. According to the author, the NRC conducts a study of the system which will take two or three years before deciding to renew the license or allow the power uprate of a nuclear plan. The author also mentions that the NRC directed the U.S. nuclear plant operators to ensure that back-up power systems are in proper locations.
