  1. 1. The Nuclear Option : A Global Sustainability Appraisal of Civil Nuclear Energy

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för byggnadsteknik, energisystem och miljövetenskap

    Author : Sebastian Arnström; [2020]
    Keywords : nuclear power; solar power; wind power; sustainability; sustainable development; sustainable energy development; sustainability of nuclear power; nuclear accidents; nuclear weapons proliferation; nuclear fuel depletion;

    Abstract : Energy production systems are essential for human progress. They fuel the technologies that underpin economic growth and are prerequisite for efficient food production, education and healthcare. On the flip side, they also incur substantial eco-social costs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for a DC-microgrid energy system in Fjärås

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Tabassom Hashemi Farzad; [2019]
    Keywords : Photovoltaic PV system; Microgrid system; Functional unit; Kilowatt peak kWp ; Ehup;

    Abstract : Application of Photovoltaic PV panels for electricity production has rapidly increased in recent years in Sweden after launching a capital subsidy for PV panel installations in 2009. Kungsbacka municipality’s housing company equipped two groups of buildings in Fjärås with PV systems to generate electricity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Validation and Benchmarking of Westinghouse BWR lattice physics methods

    University essay from KTH/Reaktorteknologi

    Author : Karol Luszczek; [2015]
    Keywords : Serpent; HELIOS; lattice physics; benchmarking; Monte Carlo; neutronics; reactor physics;

    Abstract : A lattice physics code is a vital tool, forming a base of reactor coreanalysis. It enables the neutronic properties of the fuel assembly to becalculated and generates a proper set of data to be used by a 3-D full coresimulator. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sensitivity study of control rod depletion coefficients

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Joel Blomberg; [2015]
    Keywords : nuclear power; control rod; control rods; depletion; kärnkraft; styrstav; styrstavar; utbränning;

    Abstract : This report investigates the sensitivity of the control rod depletion coefficients, Sg, to different input parameters and how this affects the accumulated 10B depletion, β. Currently the coefficients are generated with PHOENIX4, but the geometries can be more accurately simulated in McScram. READ MORE

  5. 5. An automated software for analysis of experimental data on decay heat from spent nuclear fuel

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Isbel Llerena Herrera; [2012]
    Keywords : spent nuclear fuel; decay heat; calorimetry; gamma spectroscopy; automatic calculation; använt kärnbränsle; resteffekt; kalorimetri; gamma-spektroskopi; automatiserad beräkning;

    Abstract : The Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) has developed a method for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel. This technique requires accurate measurement of the residual decay heat of every assembly. READ MORE
