[en] Take a system with the following simplifying assumptions: 1) The percentage annual load growth rate is constant. 2) The largest unit in any one year has a capacity corresponding to 1/N of system peak demand in that year. Thus, bigger units are being installed continuously as the system grows.
[en] The purpose of this paper is to indicate the vast gap in the utilisation of nuclear power between advanced and developing countries, identify some of the major problems encountered in the introduction of nuclear power into developing countries and suggest some possible approaches to overcome them.
[en] The question raised in the topic of this lecture implies of course the statement that law can help nuclear development. This assumption may seem surprising to a group like this, consisting of scientists engineers and economists active in nuclear developments. Many you will feel that they have yet to meet a lawyer in their field of work who could help them in their nuclear activities. Nevertheless, I maintain my thesis and shall try to prove it to you.
[en] The context in which this paper is set down concerns nuclear power, and this paper complements a number of more specialist treatments of aspects of the subject. Although it is, in consequence, perhaps to be expected that the discussion given would be specifically for a nuclear power plant the principles and methods of working involved apply equally to all kinds of power station projects though the actual fields of specialisation of team members, and the topics.of major discussion may vary from one project to another.
[en] 1. Arguments have already been given elsewhere(1) to support the view that the most logical method of economic assessment of nuclear power is some form of closed system analysis. Choice of method, however, still leaves open the question of economic criteria on which to base a decision. Two such criteria will be considered here (i) Internal rate of return, (ii) Net present value.
[en] The purpose of the following remarks is to explain the Agency's role in the international supply of source material and special fissionable material, and the procedures followed, by the Agency in supplying such material. In conclusion, some recent liberalization in the transfer of nuclear materials through the Agency is described.
[en] To enable the Agency to carry out its safeguards functions, the Statute gives the Agency the following rights: • To examine the design of facilities for the purpose of effective application of safeguards; • To require the maintenance of inventories and operating records to ensure the accounting for source and special fissionable materials; • To ask for reports periodically on inventories and on the operation of a facility; and • To send into the territory of States inspectors designated by the Agency, after consultation with the State concerned.
[en] The first nuclear power project in Taiwan will be a 500 MW class unit scheduled for completion by the end of 1975. (Refer to Taipower's power development programme. By that time, the system will already be large enough to accommodate a nuclear installation). As Taipower is a public utility, and utilities are always very conservative, the reactor selected by Taipower is of the light water type.
