ABSTRACT
Low- and medium-capacity nuclear power plants for distributed power generation will play a large role at the present stage. The need for such plants in our country solely for supplying electricity to the northern regions will be at least 20 GW(e). One of the most promising developments of nuclear energy sources for autonomous heat and power generation is the Uniterm low-capacity plant with a water-cooled and -moderated reactor facility, where the rich experience in developing and operating domestic propulsion nuclear power facilities is used. It possesses unique user properties and meets the present-day requirements for safety, reliability, and ecological cleanliness.
