Branch of Knowledge: 14 “Electrical Engineering”

Specialty: 144 “Heat Power Engineering”

Educational program: Heat Power Engineering

NEW Specialty: 143 “Nuclear power engineering” (license volume – 50 places)

Educational program: “Nuclear power engineering

Power engineering plays a crucial role in the functioning and development of the state. Electricity production in Ukraine is now mainly provided by nuclear power plants (NPP), thermal power plants (TPPs) and hydroelectric power plants (HPP, PSPs). Also, wind, solar stations, and biofuel power plants are increasingly being used.

For Ukraine, nuclear power engineering is a strategically important element of energy supply: its current and projected share is about 49% of the electricity produced in the country. TPPs produce about 40% of electricity, hydroelectric power plants – about 9%, and the share of electricity from alternative sources, block stations and other sources is about 2%.

Therefore, the successful functioning of nuclear energy is one of the prerequisites for ensuring national security.

Today there are 4 nuclear power plants in Ukraine:

  • Zaporizhzhya – capacity 6000 MW;
  • Southern Ukrainian – 3000 MW;
  • Rivne – 2880 MW;
  • Khmelnitsky – 2000 MW.

Zaporizhzhya NPP (Energodar) is the largest station not only in Ukraine but also in Europe.

Nuclear power engineering is a technology based on the use of the nuclear fission reaction to generate heat and generate electricity. As fuel for NPPs, the fuel elements (TVELs) that contain enriched uranium are used.

A promising direction in the development of nuclear energy in the world and in Ukraine is the use of small modular reactors (SMR) with a capacity of 50-300 mW. They have a much higher level of safety compared to traditional types of reactors, lower total cost, have the ability to work in power maneuver, and have the ability to hybrid use of nuclear and renewable energy, are built on small areas and do not require the supply of powerful power lines.

NNEGC Energoatom and Holtec International (USA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the use of small modular reactors in Ukraine for the construction of these reactors at Ukrainian NPPs and the partial localization of the production of equipment for SMR at Ukrainian enterprises. This will contribute to the formation of Ukraine as a leading global exporter of reactor systems, structures and components for small modular reactors.
