With those, you should be able to find any.pdf files which are under 3Mb or smaller.
You can also try to split them into chunks of about 1Mb. I would suggest doing this with a python script.
Our Addiction to Energy Fuels
Our addiction to energy fuels is the second of three articles in a series on the importance of energy security for our nation. Read part one of the series, Energy Security, and part three, The Role of Nuclear Power in US Security.
The last decade or so has witnessed a rapid expansion in the variety of nuclear power plants being constructed in the United States. In addition to the reactors already producing electricity, a number of new reactors are scheduled to begin commercial operation by the end of 2011.
Between 2006 and 2008, the number of reactors under construction in the United States grew by more than 30%. The growth in the number of new reactors will slow as older reactors close down, but the construction of new reactors will continue at a healthy pace. To find the most recent figures, see a chart included in the 2010 Energy Information Agency’s annual report, Status of the Nation’s Nuclear Power Plants.
Two of the recent additions to the US nuclear power fleet — the Watts Bar unit 3 in Tennessee and the Sanmen unit 2 in China — are so-called Generation III reactors. Generation II reactors are those operating commercially today. Generation I reactors are those now being decommissioned. As a rule of thumb, newer is always better. For this reason, the United States is finally building new Generation IV reactors.
Generation III reactors require a different type of reactor technology than that used by Generation II reactors. This is reflected in the cost of building a new reactor. The total cost of building and operating a reactor of a given capacity is generally much higher for Generation III reactors than for Generation II reactors.
Despite this, Generation III reactors are likely to prove more reliable than Generation II reactors, because they are more robust and better suited to operating in harsh environments. Additionally, their higher efficiency results in a more efficient use of fissile material, which has been a source of concern in the wake of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
As a result of the higher costs and improved safety, there is an increased chance that Generation III reactors will be able to compete successfully against fossil fuels in terms of cost per kilowatt-hour generated. At the same time, nuclear reactors have proven to be reliable, once built.
Another notable factor is the fact that there is no nuclear waste left from the construction of Generation III reactors. When Generation II reactors are shut down, they have to be properly disposed of. As a result, there is a substantial amount of spent nuclear fuel waiting to be shipped from the construction site to a reprocessing plant. All spent nuclear fuel 0b46394aab
