Webinar: Rapid design of Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMR) , Mar 2016

Posted By: Lorna Gilbert
Date:Tue, 1 Mar 2016, 2:31 p.m.

UK, March 29, 2016

Join us on 29th March for an introduction to new
developments in systems simulation engineering. These
developments offer greatly reduced times for performing
typical design tasks required for Small Modular Nuclear
Reactor (SMR) projects.



Start Date/Time 29 Mar 11:00
End Date/Time 29 Mar 11:30

This webinar will also be held at 15.00 GMT on 29th March


• Sizing of major components
• Calculate overall plant efficiency
• Design for controllability
This task involves typical components like the reactor
primary loop, intermediate loops, heat exchangers or
steam generators and the power generation cycle. Flownex
provides for various reactor fuel geometries, various
reactor coolant types and various types of power cycles.
• Determine the plant control philosophy
Using a plant simulation model, determine the transient
response of sensed parameters to changes in input
parameters and based on that, set up appropriate pairings
for control loops.
• Passive safety system design: natural circulation loops
Calculate the plant-wide temperatures and pressures in
response to various accident scenarios, taking into
account decay heat generation, multiple natural
circulation loops, transient energy storage and rejection
to ambient conditions.
