The pillar of modern India: Atom awake. It is India’s top research and development center in the field of nuclear science and engineering. Its scientists have given the country a strategic edge by developing nuclear bombs.

He has prepared various types of nuclear fuel to meet the needs of nuclear power plants in the country, as well as developed necessary materials for nuclear weapons. Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) was established as the Atomic Energy Establishment, Trombay (AEET) with the cooperation of Homi Jehangir Bhabha, who was planning the country’s first nuclear program.
Bhabha was its first director. Its first assignment was to bring all kinds of research and research on a platform for nuclear reactors under the Atomic Energy Commission. In 1967, the name of AEET was changed to BARC.

The first atomic test reactor in BARC and the first energy reactor in Tarapur Atomic Energy Station was imported from the US. BARC includes Research Reactor, Uranium Metals and Plant for Fuel, Recycling of Fuels and Earthquake Stations for Research and Radiostop Production. The most important achievement of engineering in all these research reactors is Dhruv.
The design, construction and operation of this high-neutron flux reactor was done entirely by Indian engineers. This reactor uses natural uranium as a fuel and the master water is used as a moderator and coolant. Pole is very useful in the investigation of power reactor technology and the production of Radioisotop.
Although the reactor of 100 Mw was ready in 1985, due to initial problems, the production of plutonium was delayed for several years. Plutonium nuclear fuel used in India’s nuclear tests in 1974 and 1998 came from reactors of BARC.

This effort gave Indian scientists not only technical knowledge and confidence to develop the future nuclear fuel, but also acquired the ability to refine it for nuclear weapons. BARC has succeeded in designing and developing India’s first pressurized water reactor, which has been installed at Kalpakkam near Chennai. It has also developed Power Unit and Propulsion Reactor for the first Indigenous Missile submarine INS Arihant, who joined the Navy in 2016 and has run nuclear energy.
BARC, specializing in advanced reactor technologies, is now focusing on developing new technologies to create nuclear energy. About 5,780 MW at this time or say that 3.5 percent of the country’s total power generation is based on nuclear power.
There has been considerable research on the use of nuclear fuel chrysures thorium and the technology of an advanced heavywater reactor. This kind of 300 Mw reactor will be installed in Tarapur for display. Apart from this, a lot of research has been done on the use of thorium-based fuels to produce commercial atomic energy. It is part of India’s three-phase nuclear energy program.
