  1. Parameterized Model Order Reduction Strategy for Fast Running CFD-Quality Transient Transport through Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 30d

    Computational fluid dynamics methods are increasingly used for high fidelity modeling of complex systems, including nuclear power systems.For example, thermal stratification in a sodium-cooled fast reactor under natural circulation conditions is resolvable with computational fluid dynamics, but not traditional system-level models.To offset the high cost of computational fluid dynamics, methods pro ...

  2. P2P Transactions with Demand Flexibility for Increasing Solar Utilization

    SBC: Qcoefficient Inc            Topic: 12c

    As installations of solar photovoltaics continue to soar, addressing the integration challenges that arise from high penetrations of solar will be paramount to achieving the SunShot Initiative 2030 goals of $0.03/kWh to $0.05/kWh levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Specific challenges related to system ramping and over-generation tend to degrade the value of PV, and solutions are needed to addre ...

  6. A New Cost-Effective Engineered Substrate

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    Silicon-based sensors are central to particle physics experiments and particle tracking detectors. Users now demand smaller mass, higher data rate, smaller pixels, and sophisticated front-end processing. Lowering the system mass mitigates loss of information due to multiple scattering and conversions as particles traverse a vertex plane. However, the ionization signal is generally proportional to ...

  10. Data-Driven Integration of High Fidelity Fluid Dynamics into Systems Codes for Design and Safety Applications

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 33d

    Computational fluid dynamics methods have found increasing use in high fidelity modeling of complex systems, particularly within nuclear power systems. For example, the phenomenon of thermal stratification in a sodium-cooled fast reactor under natural circulation conditions is resolvable with computational fluid dynamics, but not traditional system-level models. The high accuracy of computational ...
