After 24 hours, it represents 0. This may not seem like of heat, but it is. The average reactor of a MW power electricity output has about MW of thermal power.
As a result, if cooling is stopped by 1 to 2 years from shutdown, soon or later the fuel could become uncovered by water, assuming no one does anything to monitor and correct water level in the reactor pressure vessel. The same happens with the spent fuel pool at nuclear power stations.
Decay heat is the principal reason of safety concern in light water reactors, and by this reason nuclear power stations must have several safety and safeguard systems to make sure that even in the worst case scenario the fuel does not become uncovered or uncooled by water.
Nuclear reactors always have safety systems subdivided into other safety systems. Of course, those systems are operated through various sources of power such as batteries, diesel generators, backup generators, and the external power line.
Another thing that may concern people about a nuclear reactor is the massive amount of power that it can produce. The second method of control is nuclear poison boronwhich is only present in pressurized water reactors.
Boron and cadmium in the first system and solely boron in the second one. Both of them are designed to terminate the reaction within a couple of seconds.

Japan raced to avert a nuclear meltdown today by flooding a nuclear reactor with seawater after Friday's massive earthquake left more than people dead and thousands more missing. Essay: The Fukushima disaster and nuclear power Since the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, , many problems have been discussed due to the nuclear power plants in the Fukushima region.
This disaster caused many people to die and will affect future generations. The earthquake which took place on March 11, in the Tohuku District, Japan triggered a massive tsunami which eventually caused a nuclear power plant outbreak.
The tsunami, metres in height struck the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which is located in the towns of Okuma and Futaba in the Fukushima Prefecture.
