The research of acceptance focuses on the mutual relationship between public and technology, aiming to release the potential conflict between social development and technology development through the clearance of the characteristics of public risk awareness. As a large-scale and controversial project, the construction of nuclear power plant tends to trigger NIMBY conflict. Hence, public acceptance plays an important role in the feasibility of developing the nuclear power projects. Based on the method of AHP, this paper tries to structure a public acceptance model in peripheral nuclear power plant area, and analyzes the public acceptance in Taohuajiang nuclear plant of Hunan province. It shows that Taohuajinag nuclear plant shares a high score in public acceptance ratio, and stands in the low risk of NIMBY conflict. But, there is still much room to improve in the perspective of personal health level and democratic protection.

Key words: AHP method, nuclear, NIMBY conflict, risk perception, public acceptance
