A simulator to develop the EPR2

A simulator to develop the EPR2

Power | August 2020

The engineering simulator for the EPR2 reactor (designed by EDF), was installed in August 2020 in the AREVA tower at La Défense, Paris. 

Designed in collaboration with Edvance (the joint subsidiary of EDF and Framatome), this simulator is operational to run transient scenarios.

The operating procedures used have already enabled to identify design evolutions impacting the Basic Design studies.

The simulator will allow Edvance and EDF to validate EPR2 design components based on optimisation and feedback from the EPR.
