Speaker:

Dr Yen-Heng Henry CHEN
Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Abstract:

If Taiwan stopped relying on nuclear power, what impact would that have on the country’s emissions and economy? Nuclear power has been an attractive option for a low-carbon world but since the Fukushima accident in Japan, there has been a renewed debate on its safety. This study builds a computable general equilibrium model for Taiwan to explore the policy implications of carrying out low-carbon growth with or without nuclear power. Five scenarios were constructed and analysed. While pursuing a non-nuclear world without any carbon constraint has a negligible impact on the economy, carrying out a low-carbon world without nuclear power significantly reduces electricity supply, and induces other impacts on trade and carbon leakage.

IRSN Nuclear Safety and Risk Seminar on the Use of CATHARE and ASTEC Codes for Nuclear Reactors Accident Analysis



Date:

22 October 2013 (Tuesday)

Time:

6:30 pm– 8:30 pm

Venue:

Auditorium, Level 2, MTR Headquarters Building, Telford Plaza, Kowloon Bay

Venue
(Click to enlarge)

Speaker:

Dr Florian FICHOT
Expert in Severe Accident Physical Modelling

and

Dr Luben SABOTINOV
Research Engineer and Expert in the Section for Thermal-Hydraulic Analysis and Simulation of the Reactor Transient and Accident Department

Abstract:

Severe accidents are studied with the ASTEC code. ASTEC includes several models dealing with heat transfer and thermal-hydraulics in the primary and secondary circuits and in the containment, and release/chemistry/transport of fission products which are based on the most recent experimental data and knowledge. It is used in several countries as a support to safety studies or research and it is an important tool for IRSN PSA-level 2 studies.

 

CATHARE is developed to perform best-estimate analysis of nuclear reactor and facilities, basically for PWR accident analysis. CATHARE includes modules that take into account any two-phase flow behavior like thermal and mechanical non-equilibrium, vertical co- and counter-current flows, horizontal stratified flow, and all flow regimes along with all heat transfer mechanisms. The code is for analysis of Design Basis Accidents and Beyond Design Basis accidents without core melting.

Nuclear Safety and Risk Technology Seminar on Energy Choices and Consequences



Date:

25 September 2013 (Wednesday)

Time:

7:00pm AGM 7:30pm Seminar

Venue:

Lecture Theatre LT-10 , Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Dr H L Dodds
IBM Professor of Engineering and Department Head, Emeritus,
Nuclear Engineering (UTNE) Department, University of Tennessee

Abstract:

With the world’s population approaching nine billion by the year 2040, achieving a healthy lifestyle for all people on earth will depend, in part, on the availability of affordable electricity. This presentation focuses primarily on the various options for producing and using electricity and the consequences associated with each option. The options include fossil, renewables, nuclear, and conservation. All energy options are needed, but some options may be better than others depending on economics, environmental effects, public health and safety, sustainability, and politics.

Nuclear Technology Public Seminar - Observation of the Disappearance of Neutrinos from the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plants



Date:

30 August 2013 (Friday)

Time:

6:30 pm– 8:30 pm

Venue:

Lecture Theatre LT-10 , Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Dr. John Leung
Department of Physics, The University of Hong Kong

Abstract:

For a long time, neutrinos were thought to be massless until the eighties and nineties of the last century when a process called neutrino oscillation was discovered. According to the Standard Model of particle physics, there are 3 types or flavors of neutrinos associated respectively to electrons, muons and tau. Neutrino oscillation is the process through which one flavor of neutrino can change into the other flavors during their flight. The Daya Bay Experiment is designed to measure an oscillation parameter of electron neutrino, called θ13, by observing the disappearance of electron anti-neutrinos emitted from the three nuclear power plants in Daya Bay. This talk will give a brief introduction of neutrino oscillation and the Daya Bay Experiment.

Nuclear Safety and Risk Seminar on Economic Impact of a Nuclear Accident



Date:

8 April 2013 (Monday)

Time:

5:00 – 6:50 pm

Venue:

Lecture Theatre LT-16 , Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Mr Patrick MOMAL
Economist, The Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), France

Abstract:

Preparing for a nuclear accident implies understanding potential consequences. While many specialized experts have been working on different particular aspects, surprisingly little effort has been dedicated to establishing the big picture and providing a global and balanced image of all major consequences. IRSN has been working on the cost of nuclear accidents, an exercise which must strive to be as comprehensive as possible since any omission obviously underestimates the cost. It therefore provides (ideally) an estimate of all cost components, thus revealing the structure of accident costs, and hence sketching a global picture. On a French PWR, it appears that controlled releases would cause an ‘economical’ accident with limited radiological consequences when compared to other costs; in contrast, massive releases would trigger a major crisis with strong radiological consequences. The two types of crises would confront managers with different types of challenges.
