A number of nuclear power stations exist worldwide. This chapter concentrates on British, American, Canadian and European research and commercial reactors and nuclear power stations. The directory exists on the past, present and future planning for the NPS and are continuously being updated. In this chapter carefully selected nuclear stations with various design parameters have been clearly dealt with.
