Abstract: A nuclear power plant is kind of power station that generates the electricity by nuclear reactor. As like thermal power plants, in these nuclear power plants heat energy is used to generate the steam to drive the turbine which is connected to power generator to produce energy. But the heat energy has been produced by the nuclear reactor. On routine process of this type of nuclear power plant operations, the discharge of radioactive effluents from nuclear reactor causes hazardous impacts on its environment and affects the normal life of human beings, animals and plants. Hence it is essential to monitor the nuclear power plant and control the valves and devices to ensure the safety of the environment. Even many safety measures has already implemented at the power plant, the facility of monitoring and controlling from the remote location is better because the operator can be isolated from the environment. This requirement leads to the use of Internet of Things technology in monitoring and controlling the entire plant from remote location through internet. This research proposed a IoT based nuclear power plant monitoring system with security features to enhance the safety of nuclear power plants.
