IAEA Boosts Skills in Asia with Nuclear Reactor Simulators Course

IAEA Boosts Skills in Asia with Nuclear Reactor Simulators Course

Course participants receive training on basic nuclear reactor simulators for education. (IAEA/ C. Batra)
Through a training course in Daejeon, Republic of Korea, held this month the IAEA presented computer simulation tools to university professors, nuclear professionals and regulatory authorities in Asia to demonstrate the physics and operational response characteristics of a nuclear reactor.
The course is one in a series of activities organized to support education and training on nuclear reactor systems and technology in the region. Several countries are considering the introduction of nuclear power programmes, and the demand for qualified nuclear professionals drives the need to develop robust nuclear science and technology education programmes.
“These reactor simulators are useful for understanding nuclear power systems in normal operation and for accident analysis. We plan to develop similar simulator software for the Dalat Nuclear Research Reactor to assist in education and training,” said Kien Cuong Nguyen, Department Head of Reactor Physics and Engineering at the Nuclear Research Institute in Vietnam, after participating in the course.
The IAEA hosted the course in cooperation with the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) at the Nuclear Training and Education Centre in Daejeon. The workshop included hands-on training with IAEA basic principle simulators for over a dozen participants from ten different countries: Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Kenya, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Nigeria, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Republic of Korea.
Nuclear reactor simulators, which can be operated from personal computers, provide insight and understanding of reactor designs and of the operational characteristics of various pressurized water cooled reactors. They are meant for a broad audience of technical and non-technical workers and serve as an introductory educational tool. They’re particularly useful for universities interested in developing nuclear engineering courses. The application of these simulators is only in education and is limited to providing the general characteristics of selected types of power reactor systems; they’re not intended to be used for plant-specific purposes such as design, safety evaluation, licensing or operator training.
“Our suite of simulators further supports and strengthens our already established programme to teach and train nuclear professionals from our Member States, especially from nuclear newcomer countries,” said Mikhail Chudakov, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Energy.
The IAEA arranges for the development and distribution of simulation software and corresponding training materials, sponsors training courses and workshops, and distributes computer programs and documentation. These simulators, including the associated documentation, are distributed at no cost to interested parties in IAEA Member States. For more information, including the simulator request form, see the IAEA Collection of Basic Principle Simulators for Education.

New IAEA Handbook Helps Doctors Deal With Social Aspects of Nuclear or Radiological Accidents

New IAEA Handbook Helps Doctors Deal With Social Aspects of Nuclear or Radiological Accidents

"Historically, the main concern of medical professionals was the symptom. The patient was a carrier of symptoms to which observation, medical reasoning, and techniques were applied. Therefore, the medical concern did not extend much farther than the biological body. Even when operating in a public health capacity, it was not seen as the responsibility of medical professionals to understand socio-cultral factors, even when they had an obvious influence on outcomes.
The Fukushima nuclear power plant accident of March 11, 2011 has challenged these assumptions."
The Fukushima accident taught us that what was required in medical response to a nuclear accident extends beyond ordinary medical expertise.
Koichi Tanigawa, Vice President, Fukushima Medical University, Japan
So starts the preface of a new handbook for health professionals compiled following the Fukushima accident under the coordination of the IAEA and introduced at a conference for medical professionals in Singapore last week. The goal: to better prepare medical staff for the unexpected, including dealing with psychological symptoms of disasters.
"If we can assist medical personnel in communicating effectively with the affected population, the health outcomes will improve as well," said May Abdel-Wahab, Director of the Division of Human Health at the IAEA. "A tool like this handbook gives medical staff information to help people have better control over their lives and make appropriate informed decisions."
Over 100 medical professionals from nine countries participated at the 3rd Conference on Science, Technology, and Society (STS) Perspectives on Nuclear Science, Radiation, and Human Health: The View from Asia, organized jointly by the IAEA and the National University of Singapore. 
A series of IAEA projects to help build capacity of medical professionals, physicists and other specialists in Asia and elsewhere to communicate about radiation-related health risks in a nuclear or radiological emergency has concluded with this week's conference. The initiative is focused on the need for clear and science-based communication about possible health effects of radiation during and after any such emergency.
Medical and social
Understanding the social dimensions of disasters is key to finding solutions, said Koichi Tanigawa, Vice President of Fukushima Medical University, who was involved in the preparation of the handbook. "The Fukushima accident taught us that what was required in medical response to a nuclear accident extends beyond ordinary medical expertise."
Anxieties regarding radiation can be exacerbated by lack of scientific understanding, which the medical community needs to be able to deal with. "Radiation specialists thought they would be able to persuade people" about the level and risk of radiation following the Fukushima accident, said Atsushi Kumagai, Associate Professor at the Education Centre for Disaster Medicine at Fukushima Medical University. "Instead, people went with their own hunch."
There is a need for medical professionals to acquire a broader understanding of the relationship between patient and society. This is particularly important in disaster situations, as knowledge of the social becomes increasingly important in establishing and maintaining a relationship between professionals and citizens, according to the handbook.
"Back in 2011, the biggest challenges were scarcity of information on radiation among the public, and lack of coordination among responding organizations," said Tanigawa, who led a radiation emergency medical team dispatched to Fukushima following the disaster. "A science technology society project may address the roles of individuals responding to these difficult situations."
Communicating about risks is a challenge for doctors and health managers, he said. "Health care professionals need to learn how to communicate with residents who have different perceptions about radiation, provide scientific information to the public as risk communicators, and facilitate their understanding of health risks, so that the residents can adapt their lives accordingly."
The handbook provides an overview of general radiation history and circumstances of release of radiological material in Japan. It addresses risk perception and advises on how best to deal with psychosomatic symptoms. Topics on preparing for and coping with disasters and risk communication are also included, along with legal and ethical considerations.
Although the context of the handbook is Japan following the Fukushima accident, medical professionals throughout the world may find it useful, Tanigawa said. "These outputs should be included in the core curricula of medical education not only in Japan, but also in other countries in order to better prepare for unexpected events such as a major nuclear or chemical accident or an outbreak of infectious diseases."
The handbook can also be useful to a wider audience such as journalists and the general public, Abdel-Wahab said. "The ability to help the affected population cope with disasters is not restricted to doctors alone."

MANUAL REACTOR SCRAM DUE TO REACTOR RECIRCULATION PUMPS DEGRADATION

MANUAL REACTOR SCRAM DUE TO REACTOR RECIRCULATION PUMPS DEGRADATION
"At 1215 [EDT] on 6/24/2016, James A. FitzPatrick (JAF) was at 100% power when Breaker 710340 tripped and power was lost to L-gears L13, L23, L33, and L43. These provide non-vital power to Reactor Building Ventilation (RBV), portions of Reactor Building Closed Loop Cooling (RBCLC), and 'A' Recirculation pump lube oil systems. Off-site AC power remains available to vital systems and Emergency Diesel Generators (EDG) are available.
"Due to the loss of RBV, Secondary Containment differential pressure increased. At 1215 [EDT], Secondary Containment differential pressure exceeded the Technical Specifications (TS) Surveillance Requirement SR-3.6.4.1.1 of greater than or equal to 0.25 inches of vacuum water gauge. The Standby Gas Treatment (SBGT) system was manually initiated and Secondary Containment differential pressure was restored by 1219 [EDT].
"The 'A' Recirculation pump tripped at 1215 [EDT] and reactor power decreased to approximately 50%. 'B' Recirculation pump temperature began to rise due to the degraded RBCLC system. At 1236 [EDT], a manual scram was initiated. Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) water level shrink during the scram resulted in a successful Group 2 isolation. All control rods have been inserted. The RPV water level is being maintained with the Feedwater System and pressure is being maintained by main steam line bypass valves. A cooldown is in progress and JAF will proceed to cold shutdown (Mode 4). Due to complete loss of RBCLC system, the Spent Fuel Pool (SFP) cooling capability is degraded but the Decay Heat Removal system remains available. SFP temperature is slowly rising and it is being monitored. The time [duration] to 200 degrees is approximately 117 hours.
"The initiation of reactor protection systems (RPS) due to the manual scram at critical power is reportable per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). The general containment Group 2 isolations are reportable per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). In addition, the temporary differential pressure change in Secondary Containment is reportable per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(C), as an event that could have prevented fulfillment of a safety function."
The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector and the State of New York.

MIT Technology Weekend Reads: Solar City




June 25, 2016
Weekend Reads:
Solar City



In 2006, brothers Pete and Lyndon Rive founded SolarCity with their cousin Elon Musk, who is better known as Tesla’s CEO. SolarCity, which is now the country’s largest provider of rooftop solar panels, is in the news again because Musk wants Tesla to buy it. The proposed deal has a lot of folks scratching their heads for a number of reasons, not least of which is that the two companies had combined losses of $1.6 billion in 2015. This weekend we look back on stories about SolarCity’s past success and future challenges.




Tesla-SolarCity Success Depends on Battery Technology That Doesn’t Yet ExistOn Wednesday, we reported that a prosperous coupling of Tesla and SolarCity relies on a currently nonexistent energy storage system. Tesla is investing in a large factory for lithium-ion batteries, but it seems that it will be years still before the synergy between electric cars and solar power will have a large impact on energy.




Battles Over Net Metering Cloud the Future of Rooftop Solar
One advantage for residential owners of solar panels is the payment they receive when excessive energy is produced and sent back to the grid. Even Lyndon Rive says that without this scenario—called net metering—residential solar doesn’t make much financial sense for consumers. But Nevada and other states are backing down from net metering, as we reported in January. That doesn’t bode well for SolarCity.




10 Breakthrough Technologies: SolarCity’s GigafactoryUntil now, SolarCity’s business model focused on financing and installing solar panel systems, relying mainly on Chinese manufacturers for the actual panels. That is all set to change with its new so-called gigafactory in Buffalo, New York, which was one of our 10 Breakthrough Technologies in 2015. It’s a bold move, and only time will tell if it pays off for the still unprofitable company.




Paying for Solar PowerSince Buffalo is one of America’s cloudier cities, it seems like an odd location to build a giant solar-panel factory. Yet that’s what SolarCity decided to do, in no small part because New York picked up the $750 million price tag for building and equipping the facility. Last year we reported on this issue and a larger, looming question: is paying for solar power sustainable?




Innovators Under 35: Lyndon RiveSolar City’s cofounder and CEO Lyndon Rive was one of our Innovators Under 35 in 2013. His company’s program for leasing solar systems helped reduce initial costs for consumers, driving sales and making his company the current leader in rooftop solar installations in the U.S.




Why SolarCity Is Succeeding in a Difficult Solar IndustrySolar panels contribute only about 20 percent of the total cost of a solar system. Most of the money goes to companies, like SolarCity, that install the panels and connect them to the grid. Back in 2012, right when they filed for an IPO, we reported that SolarCity’s success might be partly due to staying out of solar-panel manufacturing. Ironically, that’s the market it’s breaking into with its new gigafactory.
