AbstractIn the present competitive work the results of design shape of space nuclear power plant (NPP) with dynamic (steam-turbine) energy conversion by electric capacity of 500 kW are resulted. In work are presented the weight and overall characteristics of nuclear power units and separate units, the design-layout scheme of a product, recommendations about installation operation are offered. The results obtained can be used to produce energy transport module based on megawatt-class nuclear powered.
