Hands on training on NPP simulations: achieving steady state conditions and conducting the simulation of thermal hydraulic phenomenology (June 2018)

In 2018, The ‘Hands on training on NPP simulations: achieving steady state conditions and conducting the simulation of thermal hydraulic phenomenology’ aims at a transfer of advanced knowledge and best practices in system code modeling for nuclear power plants. The 2018 edition differs from previous editions in the sense that the contents will focus on the modelling of a full power plant model from the starting day. In addition to general modeling technique for nuclear power plant systems, the course will provide a hands-on training on how to implement proper operation actions to achieve steady-state conditions by using control components of system codes.  In order to enhance the modeling skills of participants, information on important physical phenomena and the best practices in modeling will be given and discussed during the course.

Registration is now open

 

Advanced Thermal-Hydraulic Phenomenology with System Codes. RELAP and TRACE Training (June 2017)

For the third consecutive year, the training “Advanced Simulation of Thermal Hydraulic Phenomenology with system codes” has been held at the Technical University of Catalonia (Barcelona). In this sense,  we are really proud to see how the course has become consolidated during this time. In 2017, we hosted 14 people from 6 different countries: South Korea, People’s Republic of China, South Africa, Republic of Congo, Switzerland and Czech Republic. Participants came from a diverse origins of the Nuclear Thermal-Hydraulics community: regulatory bodies, research institutes, universities and companies devoted to safety analysis. The training dealt with the simulation of thermal hydraulic phenomenology covering both: local phenomena and system behavior, it was subdivided in two parts.

 

In the first one, we focused on the simulation of a test facility to simulate a particular phenomenon. The participants had to build a model from scratch. The exercise was useful to compare the capabilities of the different system codes in predicting the void fraction in a fuel bundle.

 

In the second part, a full model of a generic power plant was distributed. Firstly the participants learnt how to adjust the different control systems in order to bring the plant to stable conditions and later they configured an accidental scenario and studied the thermal hydraulic response of the system.

GET Course Extensions and Customized Courses

GET offers the possibility of extending courses for one or more weeks. In such extensions, the participant will have the oportunity to broaden the knowledge acquired in a course under the supervision of dedicated GET instructors.

 

In addition, GET offers customized courses related to thermal hydraulics, the use of system codes, uncertainty methodology and reactor safety upon request.

 

Costs will depend on the type of course extension and the number of attendees.
