It was not my desire to kill this thread! Sad

In regard to their nuclear power plants, and how (rightfully) paranoid the Japanese are of nuclear anything, how can an energy-producing station still be online (the rods are in the piles, isn't that online?) and not have power to their water pumps?  Where are they getting the electricity to pump seawater into their reactor chambers if they can't run their normal pumps?  Why did the diesel backups fail?

This is really bizarre.  I'm going to look for answers, and if I find any, post them here.



Not quite. You have to have the control rods removed enough to generate enough heat for steam to run the turbines. Also if there is enough of a shock to the grid, the power plant will trip off line. The pumps & such are not run off of the stations turbines, rather they are run off of the grid. The emergency diesel generators on the other hand Do feed the plant when the grid is not availiable.

The diesels were knocked out by the tsunami.
