Chinese, Indian and Ukrainian nuclear power generation

1. Power Engineering - China saw its nuclear power generation in 2011 hit 87.4 billion kilowatt-hours, a jump of 16.95% on-year, according to recent figures released by China Electricity Council.

This was an increase of 17.3 TWh from 2010

2. The capacity factor of Indias 20 operational nuclear reactors, adding up to an installed capacity of 4,780 MWe, is now projected to top 80 per cent in 2012-13. 80 percent capacity of 4780 MWe is 33 TWh. However an 11% increase over 2010 would take generation to about 23 TWh.

In 2006-07, the capacity factor was 64 per cent, but plummeted to 50 per cent in 2008-09. (The capacity factor is the ratio of the actual output to its output if operated at full potential.) It bounced back to 61 per cent in 2009-10 and increased further to 71 per cent in 2010-11. In the first nine months of this fiscal, it has reached 78 per cent.

India is up 11% over last year.

India generated 20.5 TWh in 2010.




3. In 2011 Ukraine produced 92.6 billion kWh from nuclear power stations

The Ukraine generated 84 TWh in 2010. So there was an increase of 8.6 Twh in nuclear generation in 2011

There was an increase of 30-40TWh in nuclear generation by China, India and the Ukraine. The variation depending upon what India actually generated.
