  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. Derivation of the angular momentum of primary fission fragments from isomeric yield ratio by TALYS using Python

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Mohammad Bagher Nori; [2021]
    Keywords : Nuclear physics; nuclear fission; angular momentum; fission fragments; isomeric yield ratios; fission products;

    Abstract : The general fission process is well known and is applied in nuclear power plants all over the world. However many properties of fission fragments are still not well understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Coupling of Nuclear Power Generation with Greenhouse Gas Capture Technology

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Sofia Bellgren; Isabel Sondén; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In order to stop the escalating global warming, humankind rapidly needs to develop and implement technology to lower the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Today there are methods to capture CO2 directly from the atmosphere (DAC); the problem lies in how to power them in a fossil-free and cost-attractive way. READ MORE

  4. 4. Understanding Military Implications of Nuclear Weapons : A Frame Analysis of U.S. and Russian Nuclear Policy Discourses 2017-2020

    University essay from Försvarshögskolan

    Author : Larisa Saveleva; [2021]
    Keywords : nuclear weapons; nuclear policy discourse; the United States; Russia; framing theory; nuclear realism;

    Abstract : The paper discusses how strategic nuclear capabilities possessed by the world’s largest nuclear powers, the United States and Russia, affect how their state leadership makes sense of the role of military force in international politics. Using the theoretical framework of the theory of nuclear revolution (Jervis 1989) and nuclear realism (van Munster & Sylvest 2016), the author parses the ways in which the role of military force is framed in U.

  5. 5. Using machine learning to predict power deviations at Forsmark

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för fysik och astronomi

    Author : Albin Björn; [2021]
    Keywords : Machine learning; power deviations; nuclear power; classification; SVM; knn; PCA;

    Abstract : The power output at the Forsmark nuclear power plant sometimes deviates from the expected value. The causes of these deviations are sometimes known and sometimes unknown. READ MORE
