  • Power excursion of the training and research reactor of Budapest University

    A three-dimensional neutronic code POWEX-K has been developed, and it has been coupled with the subchannel thermal-hydraulic core analysis code MI based on the momentum integral model. This forms the integrated neutronic/thermal hydraulics code system POWEX-K/MI for the accident analysis of the training and research reactor at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME Reactor). An ...

  • Vehicle power-train noise refinement using the Taguchi method

    This paper involves an introduction of an approach to reduce powertrain noise where the Design Of Experiments (DOE) has been implemented. Decoupling tests have been conducted on a test car to identify the engine noise transmission paths into the cabin. Under each coupling/decoupling combination, sound pressure levels at ear locations have been measured and evaluated in the second gear slow ...

  • Improving simulator training of NPP personnel

    It is common practice to have a full-scope training simulator for a specific plant or for a group of similar plants. However, use of a Full-Scope Simulator (FSS) for training is not always effective. It becomes more effective if a modular training scheme and more simple simulators are used for pre-FSS training.Keywords: NPP personnel training, simulator training, full-scope simulators, nuclear ...

  • Education for the nuclear power industry: Swedish perspective

    In the Swedish nuclear power industry staff, very few newly employed have a deep education in reactor technology. To remedy this, a joint education company, Nuclear Training and Safety Center (KSU), has been formed. To ensure that nuclear competence will be available also in a long-term perspective, the Swedish nuclear power industry and the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate (SKI) have formed a ...

  • Fault diagnosis of nuclear power plant based on genetic-RBF neural network

    This paper presents development of an automatic fault diagnosis system in the nuclear power plants to minimise the possible nuclear disasters caused by inaccurate diagnoses done by operators. Combined binary and decimal coding methods are employed in this work based on Radial Basis Function Neural Network (RBFNN) structure. This underlying RBFNN structure is further trained through genetic ...

  • Fuel reduction potential of energy management for vehicular electric power systems

    In the near future a significant increase in electric power consumption in vehicles is to be expected. To limit the associated increase in fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, smart strategies for the generation, storage/retrieval, distribution and consumption of the electric power can be used. This paper considers a vehicle configuration with a conventional drive train. Two energy management ...

  • In the World: Small Mexican village produces clean water with solar-powered system

    MIT-developed system runs autonomously, producing 1,000 liters per day. In a small village deep in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula — a day’s drive from any source of clean, drinkable water — researchers from MIT are testing a system that purifies water with the help of the sun. The relatively inexpensive system consists of several modest photovoltaic panels, a large ...

  • The challenges of introducing nuclear power in the Gulf Cooperation Council states
