  • Twenty-two years ago, an introductory course in nuclear reactor theory was taught at the University of Texas using a teaching strategy often called simply PSI (Personalized System of Instruction) or the Keller Plan. It was judged a great success based on student learning, motivation, and enjoyment and reported in the Transactions of the American Nuclear Society. Now, over two decades later, it is appropriate to report on a further use of this teaching technique as implemented at the University of New Mexico.
  • A two-course sequence has been developed to provide a detailed introduction to power plant systems and a meaningful hands-on experience operating a full-function power plant simulator. The first time the course was taught, a Westinghouse facility was used as the reference plant. The course is now designed to use a General Electric boiling water reactor (BWR)/6 facility as the reference plant and has been taught twice using the Perry Nuclear Power Plant Simulator Facility. The overall objective of this course is to provide a vehicle for students to integrate their theoretical course work into a fundamental and practical understanding ofmore » the purpose, design, and operation of power plant instrumentation, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and power generation systems. Students are required to be in at least their second year of a graduate program. Students at this level have had most of the course work necessary to perform the operations analyses expected of new nuclear plant engineers.« less

  • Efficient and effective management of the electrical distribution system requires an integrated system approach for Distribution Management Systems (DMS), Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), Distributed Energy Resources Management System (DERMS), and microgrids to work in harmony. This paper highlights some of the outcomes from a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Electricity (OE) project, including 1) Architecture of these integrated systems, and 2) Expanded functions of two example DMS applications, Volt-VAR optimization (VVO) and Fault Location, Isolation and Service Restoration (FLISR), to accommodate DER. For these two example applications, the relevant DER Group Functions necessary to support communication between DMSmore » and Microgrid Controller (MC) in grid-tied mode are identified.« less
