Abstract

AN EVALUATION WILL BE MADE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF AND METHODS FOR APPLYING INDUSTRIAL ROBOTIC COMPONENTS TO PERFORM FUSION REACTOR INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE WORK. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DECREASE BOTH THE RADIOLOGICAL HAZARDS TO WORKERS AND THE PLANT OUTAGE TIME REQUIRED FOR PERFORMING THE WORK. INCLUDED WILL BE A CHARACTERIZATION OF THE WORK TASKS, SELECTION OF ROBOTIC COMPONENTS AND AN EVALUATION OF DEPLOYMENT SCHEMES FOR TRANSPORTING THE ROBOTS WITHIN THE REACTOR BUILDING AND AT SPECIFIC WORK AREAS. THE OUTPUT WILL DEFINE A FAMILY OF ROBOTIC SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE USED IN A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT AREAS IN A COST-EFFECTIVE MANNER.
