The Nuclear Plant Analyzer (NPA) is a computer-software interface for executing the TRAC or RELAP5 power-plant systems codes. The NPA is designed to use advanced supercomputers, long-distance data communications, and a remote workstation terminal with interactive computer graphics to analyze power-plant thermal-hydraulic behavior.

Abstract. This document discusses an interactive nuclear plant analyzer (NPA) which has been developed for a VVER, Model reactor for use in the training of plant personnel, the development and verification of plant operating procedures, and in the analysis of various anticipated operational occurrences and accident : W.

Over the years real (inflation-adjusted) O&M cost have begun to level off. The objective of this report is to determine whether the industry and NRC initiatives to control costs have resulted in this moderation in the growth of O&M costs.

Because the industry agrees that the control of O&M costs is crucial to the viability of the technology, an examination of the factors .Nuclear power plants (NPP) generate nearly 20% of the total electricity in the U.S.

and nearly 30% in the E.U. In NPPs, water in secondary and cooling systems controls the heat created from the fission of radioactive isotopes, to produce steam, which is used to generate electricity.This conference brought together experts from 15 countries to discuss application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to the nuclear industry.

It was apparent from the meeting that even those active in the field were surprised at the extent of .
