Topic: Use case system engineer
June 16, 2019 / By Jervis Question:
I am wondering why the methods used to cool those reactors failed?? From what I understand there are "back up" systems (generators) used to cool the system but they failed. I am not a nuclear engineer but if they use some sort of generators to run cooling pumps wouldnt they be "stand alone self sufficient" models that start and run on batteries and not electricity in case of electric power loss. This just seems like common sense to avoid the problems they are having now????

Back up systems still have to deal with pipes and electrical circuits that were damaged by the earthquake and shorted by the tsunami.
The tsunami flooded the generators and the backup batteries were only designed to power the pumps for about 16 hrs.
Actually.. to the dude below me..
It's not God's will..
everyone has free will.. they went against God's will.. that is why it happened
