EPR2: delivery of the basic design simulator

epr2 delivery of the basic design simulator

In early 2023, CORYS delivered the EPR2’s basic design simulator to Edvance. The project enabled new model production methods to be validated, as well as building up experience about the future reactor and facilitating the growing headcount of the Nuclear business line, which is due to double by 2030.   The basic design simulator delivered … Read more

Formations nucléaires : pourquoi ils recommandent le simulateur C-PWR

training courses

Ils sont manager de formation, enseignant, étudiant en école d’ingénieur, et ils ont adopté le simulateur C-PWR pour découvrir ou faire découvrir à leurs équipes les principes physiques de base d’un réacteur à eau pressurisée (REP). Nous les avons rencontrés pour connaître et partager leur retour d’expérience. Mathieu Sauvage, responsable formation nucléaire chez Engie à … Read more

Early Launch of Validation via an Evolving Engineering Simulator (ELVEES) simulation strategy

In engineering, dynamic validation changes everything Guillaume Hémery R&D Manager, Framatome Framatome has invested in a forward-compatible engineering simulator known as Elvees to validate power plant design stages, notably for the Angra 3 power plant in Brazil over the next few years. While it takes time to adjust to the new practice, dynamic simulation is … Read more

Digital reactor project : the practical stage

Réacteur numérique (‘Digital Reactor’) is an R&D project undertaken by nine French companies working in the nuclear industry. The four-year project seeks to develop a digital twin of a power plant that can be used from design right through to deconstruction. CORYS is one of the companies involved, and responsible for the functional integration bench. … Read more

The molten salt reactor, a new horizon for simulation

In collaboration with the CNRS laboratory, CORYS is developing a molten salt nuclear reactor simulator to interact with the process in real-time. This technology is now drawing renewed global attention due to its safety, performance and flexibility. This is enough to attract major industrial players. Since the 1950s, the molten salt reactor has been studied … Read more

Digital Twin : the Challenge of Nuclear Power Plants

Whether it’s airplanes, trains, factories or nuclear power plants, industries that rely on simulation are always seeking to come closer to the ideal goal of a digital twin. In other words, to create a virtual copy of an installation that can develop and guide a project from start to finish. However, in the case of … Read more

THOR Advanced Thermal Hydraulics Models

THOR is a two-phase, non-equilibrium, fluid dynamics model for flow networks. CORYS offers THOR to the simulation industry for modeling complex, multi-phase fluid systems with high fidelity results.  THOR is installed on more nuclear power plant simulators than any other advanced thermal hydraulics model.  The THOR models have been benchmarked extensively through more than 80 … Read more

Thermal hydraulics advanced models with MELCOR codes

Interfacing the thermal hydraulics advanced models with MELCOR severe accident codes The CORYS advanced thermal hydraulics models are installed on most of the nuclear plant simulators in North America, as well as many in Europe. It provides two-phase non-equilibrium models for the reactor coolant system, emergency core cooling systems, high energy systems of the balance … Read more

Nuclear fundamentals training : effectiveness of PC-Based simulators suite

PC-based simulation: a whole new way of doing introductory nuclear power training The advent of an integrated suite of training simulators running on standard PCs is transforming initial training for operators, technicians, engineers, junior managers on induction courses, and others. These interactive resources, validated on the basis of real-life plant data, have improved trainee involvement … Read more
