Small modular reactors (SMRs) are an advanced, safe type of nuclear reactor technology that are suitable for small and medium sized applications including both power and heat generation. In particular, their use as individual units or in combination to scale-up capacity offer benefits in terms of siting, installation, operation, lifecycle and economics in comparison to the development of larger nuclear plant for centralised electricity power grids. Interest has increased in the research and development of SMRs for both developing countries as well as such additional cogeneration options as industrial/chemical process heat, desalination and district heating, and hydrogen production. This book reviews key issues in their development as well as international R&D in the field.

- Gives an overview of small modular reactor technology- Reviews the design characteristics of integral pressurized water reactors and focuses on reactor core and fuel technologies, key reactor system components, instrumentation and control, human-system interfaces and safety- Considers the economics, financing, licensing, construction methods and hybrid energy systems of small modular reactors- Describes SMR development activities worldwide, and concludes with a discussion of how SMR deployment can contribute to the growth of developing countries

Ingersoll, Daniel T.
Dr. Daniel Ingersoll is a retired nuclear expert with over 43 years of experience in radiation transport physics and advanced nuclear reactors. Before retiring, he served for 7 years as Director of Research Collaborations at NuScale Power, LLC. Prior to joining NuScale, he was Senior Program Manager for the Small Modular Reactors R&D Office at Oak Ridge National Laboratory where he served as National Technical Director for the US Department of Energy's Small Modular Reactor program. During his 35 years at ORNL, he led several ORNL research organizations conducting radiation transport modeling, reactor shielding experiments, and reactor physics analysis in support of advanced reactor development. Dr. Ingersoll received a B.S. degree in Physics from Miami University in 1973 and a Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Illinois in 1977. He is a fellow of the American Nuclear Society and author of the recently published book Small Modular Reactors: Nuclear Power Fad or Future?
Carelli, Mario D.
Dr. Carelli retired from Westinghouse in 2012 as Chief Scientist for Research & Technology where he was responsible for identification and implementation of advanced and revolutionary nuclear technologies. Dr. Carelli, who held a series of management posts in advanced science and technologies at Westinghouse, is recognized as a worldwide expert in the design of advanced nuclear reactors. While at Westinghouse, he led an international team of experts spanning 10 countries to develop the International Reactor Innovative and Secure (IRIS) SMR design. He is a graduate of the University of Pisa in Italy with a Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering.
