  • Our proposal described an approach for addressing the barriers of advanced modeling and simulation (M&S) adoption by the nuclear energy industry. This will be achieved by developing a state-of-the-art, open-source integrated design-analysis environment (IDAE) to work on a range of nuclear energy applications, while leveraging best-in-class software created through millions of investment dollars from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office for Nuclear Energy (NE) and from several other funding agencies.
  • The framework created through the Open-Source Integrated Design-Analysis Environment (IDAE) for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling & Simulation grant has simplify and democratize advanced modeling and simulation in the nuclear energy industry that works on a range of nuclear engineering applications. It leverages millions of investment dollars from the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy for modeling and simulation of light water reactors and the Office of Nuclear Energy's research and development. The IDEA framework enhanced Kitware’s Computational Model Builder (CMB) while leveraging existing open-source toolkits and creating a graphical end-to-end umbrella guiding end-users and developers through the nuclear energymore » advanced modeling and simulation lifecycle. In addition, the work deliver strategic advancements in meshing and visualization for ensembles.« less
  • This Feasibility Analysis covers a wide range of studies and evaluations. The Report is divided into five parts. Section 1 contains all material relating to the Institutional Assessment including consideration of the requirements and position of the Potomac Electric Co. as they relate to cogeneration at Georgetown in parallel with the utility (Task 1). Sections 2 through 7 contain all technical information relating to the Alternative Subsystems Analysis (Task 4). This includes the energy demand profiles upon which the evaluations were based (Task 3). It further includes the results of the Life-Cycle-Cost Analyses (Task 5) which are developed in detailmore » in the Appendix for evaluation in the Technical Report. Also included is the material relating to Incremental Savings and Optimization (Task 6) and the Conceptual Design for candidate alternate subsystems (Task 7). Section 8 contains all material relating to the Environmental Impact Assessment (Task 2). The Appendix contains supplementary material including the budget cost estimates used in the life-cycle-cost analyses, the basic assumptions upon which the life-cycle analyses were developed, and the detailed life-cycle-cost anlysis for each subsystem considered in detail.« less
  • The objective of this project is to study the effect of technology variation on the cost and performance of OSIES fuel cell power plants; and to provide systems analysis codes and models for DOE use in their technology assessment. The approach followed was to develop a systems model of the UTC 40 kW OSIES power plant using the thermodynamic analysis capabilities of the PSI/S3E program. We have also developed a cost model of the power plant, UTCCOST/VC. This latter code uses a VisiCalc spread sheet analysis, allowing sensitivity studies to be performed quickly. We have modified and updated several PSI/S3Emore » models to simulate the advanced technologies and have incorporated these models into the existing power plant simulation code and determined the effect of technology variations on power plant cost and efficiency. Results are presented and discussed. (WHK)« less
  • The University of Minnesota is focusing on retrofitting the Southeast Steam Plant, the cogeneration of energy, and the conversion from Eastern to Western coal. This volume summarizes the environmental review. As a result of a formal and legal review by the State of Minnesota Environmental Quality Board and the member state and local regulatory agencies the Environmental Quality Board based upon no formal objection to a negative declaration for an Environmental Impact Statement for ICES declared that the ICES project can now commence. Significant to the review were the additional reports generated for formal MPCA review of emissions related tomore » the Clean Air Act and upcoming enforcement of amendments which establish lower pollutants standards and tradeoff policies coupled to ''Lowest Achievable Emissions Rates.'' Positive results of the EQB review for all of ICES or any portion follows. The procedures and results of calculations, accompanying letters, etc. are fully included in other volumes of this report. Because of detailed calculations and meetings with the MPCA, the ICES program is into permitting discussions and negotiations. Formal permitting filing of ICES can begin with Phase III design. During the 30-day review period, which began March 27, 1978, there was no formal filing of an opposition to the negative declaration for an EIS. Issues established by the 30 day review are summarized. (MCW)« less
