A testbed to assess digital instrumentation and control and cyber security of nuclear power plants (2016-12-09)Existing nuclear power plants (NPPs) are switching from analog to digital control systems, and digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems are expected to be used in all of the new NPPs. Digital I&C is expected to ...
Flow control and associated technologies to advance the application of TEMHD-driven liquid lithium in fusion devices (2016-12-02)As the fusion research community trends toward building larger and hotter devices, evidence points to the fact that solid plasma facing components will not be able to endure the conditions without extensive damage. ...
(2016-12-01)High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HiPIMS) or High Power Pulsed Magnetron Sputtering (HPPMS) is a magnetron sputtering method that has proven to be a promising ionized physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique, with ...
Analysis of reverse flow restriction device to prevent fuel dryout during loss of coolant and instability accidents of boiling water reactors (2016-09-07)This work introduces a new method to increase the safety of Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs) during the BWR instability and Loss of Coolant Accidents (LOCA). The method is based on a device called Reverse Flow Restriction ...
Study of temperature dependence of hydrogen retention in lithium coatings on stainless steel with the Materials Analysis Particle Probe (MAPP) (2015-12-09)Plasma materials interactions (PMI) in tokamak machines play a crucial role in the overall plasma performance. For this reason PMI research has gained great interest during the last couple of decades. Proper conditioning ...
