beyond control the nuclear fission chain reaction is the fundamental process by which nuclear reactors produce usable energy representative diagram of control rod usage the left image from the illustration drawn on the above nuclear power plant diagram it can be seen that a nuclear reactor consists of fuel rods control rods and moderator a fuel rod contains small round fuel pallets uranium pallets control rods are of cadmium which absorb neutrons inside a nuclear power plant nuclear power plant design depends on a containment structure cooling systems and a steam turbine this diagram shows all the parts of a nuclear reactor to prevent overheating control rods made of a material that absorbs neutrons are inserted into the uranium bundle using a mechanism that can raise or nuclear power plants generate a tremendous amount of energy through nuclear fission without control rods this.
energy has the potential to be highly destructive learn more about what control rods in a nuclear power plant do in this article the nuclear chain reaction may be controlled using a device called a control rod control rods are made of materials which absorb neutrons thus when a control rod is inserted into a nuclear reactor it reduces the number of free neutrons available to cause the uranium atoms to fission a nuclear reactor consists of fuel rods control rods and moderator a fuel rod contains small round fuel pallets uranium pallets control rods are of cadmium which absorb neutrons they are inserted into reactor and can be moved in or out to control the reaction the moderator can be graphite rods nuclear fuel designs dictate that the pellet filled rods have a precise physical arrangement in terms of their lattice pitch spacing and their relation to other features such as water moderator.
