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

training courses

In engineering, dynamic validation changes everything Guillaume HémeryR&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 realistic, … 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
