Abstract
  • A scaling analysis of the Oregon State University (OSU) - Multi-Application Small Light Water Reactor (MASLWR) system has been developed, and an existing RELAP5-3D model of the facility was improved. The purpose of this study is to support the research of hybrid energy systems, being led by Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Hybrid energy systems have recently become a point of interest for their ability to combine nuclear and non-nuclear clean power generation, while also providing energy storage and industrial production capabilities. Hybrid Energy Systems could well utilize small modular reactors (SMRs). For this study, the specific requirement is a RELAP5-3D model of the NuScale design. The OSU-MASLWR system modeled an older version of the NuScale design, so the RELAP model is based on that facility. However, MASLWR was not scaled for the types of testing that INL requires, so a new set of scaling parameters was developed. The RELAP model was benchmarked against IAEA data from an International Collaborative Standard Problem study performed at MASLWR in 2010. This work shows that the RELAP model agrees well with test data, and is therefore suitable for simulating the performance of the MASLWR system for nuclear hybrid energy system testing.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Hi Kyle, Everything looks good except the defense date was changed to December 29, 2016 and should be changed to December 14, 2016 on the Abstract page, Copyright Page, Title page and Approval page. Also on the title page change the commencement date from 2016 so it reads - Commencement June 2017 Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised PDF and resubmit. Let me know if you have any problems and tell your parents hi for me! ~Julie on 2017-01-03T21:14:22Z (GMT)
