Following the 900 MW stage, the SiRENE simulator (SImulator RENovated for design work) has been deployed for the 1300 MW stage at EDF’s nuclear engineering department.
This engineering simulator, developed by CORYS, is notably used to support modifications to the operations by allowing EDF teams the possibility of predicting and analysing their impact on the installations.
As a result, these EDF engineering teams are now able to use SiRENE for their studies via direct access from each engineer’s workstation. Since 2019, some teams have also elected to use the SiRENE simulator to introduce newcomers to its use and make them aware of normal and accidental operation.
Emmanuel Poulmarc’h, SiRENE project manager at EDF, declared: “The SiRENE simulator delivered by CORYS is for us an innovative and efficient tool that has opened up a very wide field of use for our studies, and its accessibility through the EDF network is a real plus, appreciated by users.”
