Riddle Me This (Possible nuke plant problem?)
This thought just crossed my mind and realizing the importance of this very possible scenario I knew I had to post this in hopes of creating some form of corrective action if necessary.
As we all know there has recently been a number of problems with nuke plants these days. Of these problems encountered, the most common one that keeps popping up of “major concern” has involved the electrical generator stations getting flooded and drowning out the generators that power the water pumps that keep the rods from going into melt down.
Seems the antidote to this problem keeps getting handled by bringing on line a set of backup generators if the main ones fail. So, WHAT IF……
WHAT IF a country is hit with a pulse bomb??? Pulse bombs short out all computerized and/or digital equipment, THUS most newer-day or modern generators are computerized and will NOT run, BACKUPS INCLUDED! WHAT THEN???
Thinking about this reminded me of a story that I heard, some years back. The story was about the U.S. and they got a hold of some soviet jet and dissected it. What they found was an old electron emitting tube type electrical system in the jet rather than the newer transistor type. The scientists laughed saying how out dated this was to be used on a jet of these times. But one scientist wasn’t laughing. He said this kind of jet could fly in the event of a pulse bomb.
By the way things have been going and because almost all aircraft made today are made of the newer type electronics, I presume that most, if not all, nuke plant generators around the world are also of the newer computer, digital type also. AND if this story is true and the old-type electronics can function in the event of a pulse attack then they need to revert back to the old type inductive charge system, AND IT SHOULD BE MANDATED IMMEDIATELY.
Do we have any electrical technicians here that can vouch for this concept? If this checks out to be true the words got to spread and ALL generators MUST be replaced or updated ASAP.
