  1. 1. Development of a Nordic BWR plant model in APROS and design of a power controller using the control rods

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Jonathan Al-Ani; [2021]
    Keywords : APROS; Dynamic process simulation; System code; Nuclear reactor; nuclear power; BWR; Boiling Water Reactor; closed cycle; steam cycle; one-dimensional flow; Westinghouse; control rods; APROS; Dynamisk processimulering; Beräkningsmodell; Kärnkraft; BWR; Kokvattenreaktor; ångcykel; en-dimensionell flödesmodell; Westinghouse; kontrollstavar;

    Abstract : In this master thesis an input-model of a Nordic BWR power plant has been developed in APROS. The plant model contains key systems and major thermohydraulic components of the steam cycle, including I&C systems (i.e. power, pressure, level and flow controls). READ MORE

  2. 2. Validation of the Westinghouse BWR nodal core simulator POLCA8 against Serpent2 reference results

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Mathilde Gaillard; [2021]
    Keywords : Nodal Core Analysis; Monte Carlo Methods; CBH Effects; Nodal kärnanalys; Monte Carlo-metoder; CBH-effekter;

    Abstract : When a new nodal core simulator is developed, like all other simulators, it must go through an extensive verification and validation effort where, in the first stage, it will be tested against appropriate reference tools in various theoretical benchmark problems. The series of tests consist of comparing several geometries, from the simplest to the most complex, by simulating them with the nodal core simulator developed and with some higher order solver representing the reference solution, in this case on the Serpent2 Monte Carlo transport code.

  3. 3. Design and control of a 3D printed, 6DoF robot arm

    University essay from KTH/Mekatronik

    Author : Michal Gabriel Sawczuk; [2021]
    Keywords : Mechatronics; 6DOF Robot Arm; Robotics; Robot; Arduino; Mekatronik; Robotarm; Robotik; Robot; Arduino; Sex frihetsgrader;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to design, construct and control a robotic arm with six degrees of freedom. The arm should be able to do simple tasks such as pick and place with good accuracy and without using external sensors. This thesis investigates the precision and the strength of the constructed robot arm. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Production of Samarium-Cobalt Nanoparticles Using a Spark Discharge Generator

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Timothy Lewis; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this project I attempt to press custom electrodes from Sm and Co powder using two different pressing tools. I investigate if custom electrodes can generate nanoparticles with tailored properties using a spark discharge generator (SDG). READ MORE

  5. 5. Robot mimicking human eye movements to test eye tracking devices

    University essay from KTH/Mekatronik

    Author : JENNIFER TANNFELT WU; [2018]
    Keywords : Robot eyes; eye tracking; testing robot; humanoid eyes; saccade trajectory planning;

    Abstract : Testing of eye tracking devices is done by humans looking at well defined stimuli. This way of testing eye trackers is not accurate enough because of human errors. The goal of this thesis is to design and construct reliable robotic eyes that can mimic the behaviour of human eyes. READ MORE
