Pilot Support Tool for EDVANCE

Pilot Support Tool for EDVANCE

Power | June 2019

Since March 2019, CORYS has been designing a tool to assist EDVANCE, EDF and Framatome's nuclear engineering subsidiary, in managing the Flamanville 3 EPR.

This tool, which includes several simulation setups, will eventually be used in the control room at the Flamanville EPR plant to:

  • Perform calculations to forecast a set of core variables during power variations of the unit
  • Participate in the validation of the COCCINELLE neutron code by EDF R&D
  • Carry out various studies by EDF's nuclear generation division (DPN)

This project is therefore implemented by and for several EDF departments (Flamanville, Technical Department, R&D and DPN) which act as suppliers of input data and/or future users of the tool. Delivery is scheduled for next September.
