Simulation & Testing for Nuclear Power Generation

The nuclear industry is in a crisis with falling profits, budget overruns, and reactor shutdowns. Tightening regulations require a need to streamline plant licensing while growing competition from renewables and cheaper gas demand improved plant economics. Innovative reactor technologies and faster development is the need of the hour for nuclear manufacturers. Our extensive simulation tools enable the nuclear industry to optimize the design, construction, and operation of the next generation of nuclear plants through digitalization of the design cycle.

On paper, at least, the nuclear industry offers an almost unlimited supply of low-carbon energy. However, poor plant economics, reliability issues and environmental and safety concerns have damaged nuclear power’s reputation, causing the premature closure of existing power stations and a reduction in the support for commissioning the next generation of reactors. The challenge is to reduce design cycles to under three years and lower licensing and construction timelines by 50%. Meanwhile, nuclear plant efficiencies must be improved as well as streamlining the regulatory licensing process. How do existing manufacturers and the new, innovative nuclear startups tackle this energy environment? Nuclear power is only viable through the extensive use of multi-physics modeling and simulation, which can predict and perfect the performance of all aspects of the operation of a nuclear reactor, from accelerated licensing to operational excellence and optimized economic performance.
