 Fauske & Associates, LLCSung Jin Lee  Large Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear We used the facility and process modeling code FATE to develop a computer model of a liquid-metal cooled reactor to provide mechanistic source term analysis capability for licensing purpose. In the model, every component of the reactor system is represented, even with simple representation, to allow mechanistic simulation of the reactor during normal operation, off-normal transient, and accident. They include fuel rods, reactor core, reactor vessel, primary heat exchangers, coolant pumps, passive heat removal system, and containment. We also developed a similar FATE based computer model of a heat pipe cooled micro-reactor.

Independently, we developed an interface between the severe accident code MAAP5 and nuclear power plant sensors for an accident predictor capability. During an accident the plant data will be used to initialize the plant’s MAAP5 model, run the code, and predict the trajectory of the plant response. The initialize-predict mini-runs can be performed as many times as needed as the accident evolves. Because only a hundreds of sensor readings are available whereas the number of MAAP5 variables to be initialized are large (tens of thousands), thousands of MAAP5 sequences were evaluated for various scenarios and machine learning techniques were used to relate the sensor readings to a specific sequence and the corresponding obscure MAAP5 variable values.

Thus, we know how to create digital twins of advanced reactors using FATE. Our experience in using MAAP5 simulation results as training data for machine learning can be equally applied to FATE based digital twins. We can apply digital twin and machine learning to operations and maintenance of advanced reactors in several areas including: 1) use a digital twin to relate sensor readings to conditions (temperature, pressure, and flow rate) in other hard-to-reach locations where essential components are located, thereby reducing inspection and enabling predictive maintenance 2) use digital twin outputs as training data for software to detect and diagnose anomalous conditions. 3) use a digital twin to test and evaluate load following strategies. 4) use a digital twin to study what-if scenarios and for system optimization.

 Xologies IncorporatedJeremy L Perando  Small Business Other Energy Technologies While going to college i worked via an Electrical Engineer apprenticeship with CONSOL energy. This certified me for working underground and I got my first look at drives and high voltage systems. With my newly found wealth working in the mines, i found the next 4 years in general labor underground in the coal mines. For the last two years of those 4 I was enrolled in a computer tech school completing my degree. I took job placement from there with Adelphia Communications where I got to work at corporate doing technical phone support while watching the broadband base grow from to 50 cities to 50000 cities. I wanted to get back closer to home and bid on a job at a local office where after a couple years Adelphia went bankrupt and i moved into temp work for COVAD communications doing backend phone support for T1 and T3 business lines. From there I took a permanent job working for BEITZEL corporation, a construction company in Garrett County MD. They were at a unique crossroads where mining safety regulation and technology smashed together. Being that I was already a certified miner and had spent the last 4 years in the tech field, I was able to help substantially in the Automation department. After a couple years Beitzel Corp formed Pillar Innovations where i assisted with building the department where i became manager of the automation and atmospheric monitoring product manager. After 9 years i was ask to start an automation department for an electrical contractor startup. Here I was responsible for entire coal preparation plant programming and SCADA systems. This lasted for a year where we started up one entire plant and some train loadouts. After the mining industry started to decline, CLINE Industires was still adding onto their coal plants as planned so all the work was moving to Illinois. At this point I started my business, Xologies Incorporated. Six years in and i can say that finding the right employee is the most difficult part of what a business owner does. Currently we support chemical and control systems using primarily Rockwell Software and Allen Bradley hardware. We also do custom robotics with ARM processors using PYTHON and web interfaces. Best asset is problem solving followed by intercommunication of old and new tech. Process control and control systems in general, just make sense to me. I also coach 2 FIRST robotics tech challenge teams and mentor on other teams.

Areas of in-depth expertise include reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, structural mechanics, fuels and materials behavior, and reactor plant instrumentation, diagnostic and control systems. This expertise is employed to optimize the design and operation of reactors operating with a variety of neutron energy spectra, coolant types and fuel-cycle schemes.
Argonne’s nuclear energy research activities range from development and experimental validation of modeling techniques to analysis, optimization studies and codes & standards supporting design, licensing, and operation of nuclear reactor plants. Achievement of competitive economics, inherent safety and a high degree of operational autonomy has been a cornerstone of Argonne’s nuclear energy development efforts.
Argonne researchers carry out reactor design and safety analyses using integrated computer codes aimed at modeling the behavior of the entire reactor and associated engineering systems. These phenomenological models are used to simulate the steady state and transient behaviors of all the major components in a nuclear power plant, including the reactor core, the coolant systems and components, and the plant control and protection systems. Modeling capabilities are continually improved and validated to represent novel design features or demonstrate enhanced performance and safety.
Argonne researchers also develop, demonstrate and apply advanced software tools for optimizing the operation and maintenance of nuclear power plants. This software employs potentially large datasets of plant information, sophisticated data analysis techniques, as well as mechanistic (physics-based) modeling for determination or confirmation of plant system conditions. Development and use of this software leverages extensive computational science capabilities and computing hardware that includes Argonne’s leadership class supercomputers.

 Advanced Reactor SolutionsAdam Scheider  Small Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear Advanced Reactor Solutions holds significant experience in the design, operations, and maintenance of light water reactors. Strengths we bring are 1. asset performance management and predictive maintenance 2. nuclear plant O&M activities. These are two of the eight areas of expertise identified in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
Advanced Reactor Solutions has been active in the nuclear power industry over the past 20 years. We have accrued significant experience in determining critical components for maintenance and repair. We have supported numerous outages of US power plants. Additionally, we have substantial experience with system design of new power plants using US NRC regulations and Quality Assurance framework.
Our industry exposure has raised our awareness of new products that have an opportunity to offer substantial benefit if incorporated properly into system design. Due to the slow and tedious licensing process in the traditional NRC framework, new products often fall to the wayside and are left as "later revisions" or "future candidates" for design considerations. Advanced Reactor Solutions sees this FOA as an opportunity for present day designs to embrace state-of-the-art technology. This practice should optimize design for maximum benefit while balancing cost, performance, safety, and quality.
