This research examined how fuel performance codes can help predict fuel integrity during flexible operations of nuclear power plants. Researchers also developed a new model to improve prediction of fuel behavior.
As nuclear plants move toward flexible operations, it becomes more important to conduct timely fuel performance analyses on the entire reactor core for safe, reliable operations. However, such analyses are computationally intensive and have long run times. In this research, EPRI designed a tool to perform such analyses with high-performance computing and assessed its potential […]
