1. A system, comprising:

  • means for thermoelectrically converting heat generated with a nuclear reactor to electrical energy; and

    means for selectively transferring the electrical energy to at least one first operation system of the nuclear reactor in response to a signal from a second operation system of the nuclear reactor to supply power to the at least one first operation system using the transferred electrical energy, the at least one first operation system affecting the nuclear reactor responsive to the power supplied, wherein the signal from the second operation system is responsive to at least one third operation system.
