Nuclear Technology Public Seminar: Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Accident – A Strong and Independent Nuclear Regulator



Date:

05 November 2016 (Tuesday)

Time:

6:45 pm – 8:00 pm

Venue:

Room 3614, 3/F, Academic Building 2 (Li Dak Sum Yip Yio Chin Academic Building ), City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Dr. Yi-Bin Chen (陳宜彬)
Director (Retired), Department of Nuclear Regulation, Atomic Energy Council, TAIWAN
 

Abstract:

A strong and independent nuclear regulator needs:

  1. separation from promotion,
  2. transparency and no political and economic influence,
  3. sufficient resources including technical competence staff,
  4. strong internal or external support,
  5. directly to conduct international cooperation.

The above criteria are summarized from various presentations made at the IAEA and INSAG conferences.

The Great Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011 and the ensuing tsunami which hit the east coast of Japan caused a loss of all on-site and off-site power at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, leaving it without any emergency power. The resultant damage to fuel, reactor, and containment of Units 1 to 3 caused a large release of radioactive materials to the region surrounding the station. The main conclusions of the Japan National Diet investigation report went beyond the direct technical and equipment failures. It concluded that the accident was clearly manmade and the root causes of the accident were in institutional and cultural issues rather than in technical and natural conditions.

 

This presentation will discuss the roles and positions of Japanese nuclear regulator before the Fukushima accident against the five criteria mentioned above. In addition, further improvements of Japanese nuclear infrastructure and safety culture are recommended. .

Talk 1: Overview of LWR Severe Accident Research Activities at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Dr. Alexei Miassoedov
Group Leader, Accident Analysis (UNA), Institute for Nuclear and Energy Technologies (IKET), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany

Talk 2: Severe Accident Facilities for European Safety Targets (SAFEST) Project Roadmap Activities and Overview of CEA Severe Accident Research
Dr. Christophe Journeau
International Expert, Severe Accident Physics and Modelling Laboratory (SMTA/LPMA), Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA), Cadarache, France


Abstract:

Talk 1: Overview of LWR Severe Accident Research Activities at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

The research activities in the light water reactor (LWR) severe accidents domain at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are concentrated on the in- and ex-vessel core melt behavior. The overall objective is to investigate the core melt scenarios from the beginning of core degradation to melt formation and relocation in the vessel, possible melt dispersion to the reactor cavity and to the containment, corium concrete interaction and corium coolability in the reactor cavity, and hydrogen behaviour in reactor systems. The results of the experiments contribute to a better understanding of the core melt sequences and thus improve safety of existing and, in the long-term, of future reactors by severe accident mitigation measures and by safety installations where required. This presentation describes the experimental facilities used at KIT for severe accident research and gives an overview of the main directions and objectives of the R&D work.

Talk 2: Severe Accident Facilities for European Safety Targets (SAFEST) Project Roadmap Activities and Overview of CEA Severe Accident Research

Severe accident with core meltdown is a threat to the containment integrity, and is the focus of considerable research involving substantial human and financial resources worldwide due to many challenging phenomena, complicated by high temperatures and presence of radioactive materials. The unique SAFEST Project Integrates European severe accident research facilities into a pan-European laboratory for severe accident and corium studies, and provides resources to other European partners for better understanding of possible accident scenarios and phenomena, in order to improve safety of existing and, in the long-term, of future reactors. The SAFEST Project will be able to address and resolve the variety of the remaining severe accident issues related to accident analysis and corium behavior. It will be a valuable asset for the fulfilment of the severe accident R&D programs that are being set up after Fukushima and the subsequent European stress tests. The knowledge obtained in SAFEST shall lead to improved severe accident management measures, which are essential for reactor safety - In addition it will offer competitive advantages for the nuclear industry and contribute to the long-term sustainability of nuclear energy. Dr. Journeau will also have an overview of severe accident research activities in Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA).

Speaker:

Prof. Pavel Kudinov
Associate Professor, Division of Nuclear Power Safety, Royals Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden


Abstract:

Severe core melt accident is the major source of public risks from nuclear power. In this talk, the speaker will present the development and application of a Risk Oriented Accident Analysis framework (ROAAM+) to assessment of severe accident mitigation strategy effectiveness in Nordic type boiling water reactors (BWRs). The assessment of effectiveness of the accident mitigation strategy requires an integrated deterministic-probabilistic safety analysis (IDPSA) approach.

In ROAAM+ framework all stages of the accident progression are simulated using a set of models coupled through initial and boundary conditions in a risk assessment framework. The analysis starts from plant damage states determined in PSA Level-1 and follows time dependent accident scenarios of core degradation, vessel failure, melt release, steam explosion and debris bed formation and coolability.

In order to achieve computational efficiency sufficient for extensive sensitivity, uncertainty, and risk analysis, the surrogate modeling approach is used. In the development of simplified but computationally efficient surrogate models (SM), we employ databases of solutions obtained by detailed but computationally expensive full models (FM).

Nuclear Technology Public Seminar: Recent Development in Fluoride Salt-cooled High-temperature Reactor (FHR) Technology



Date:

07 June 2016 (Tuesday)

Time:

6:45 pm – 8:00 pm

Venue:

Lecture Theatre LT-7, Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Dr Lin-wen Hu
Director for Research and Services and Principal Research Scientist
MIT Nuclear Reactor Laboratory
 

Abstract:

The Fluoride salt-cooled High-temperature Reactor (FHR) is a new reactor concept that combines a liquid salt coolant and high temperature graphite-matrix coated coated-particle fuel originally developed for High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactors (HTGRs). The base-line liquid salt coolant was originally developed for use in molten salt reactors (MSRs) where the fuel is dissolved in the salt. The FHR operates at low pressure and has excellent heat transfer characteristics with superior safety features. Design temperature of FHR coolant is about 600-700°C that enables a nuclear air-Brayton combined cycle power system adapted from natural gas combined cycle plants. Research and development of FHR is supported by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through a joint university program at MIT, University of California-Berkeley, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and University of New Mexico. In China, Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is leading the FHR development and is planning to build a 10-MW test reactor (TMSR-SF1). A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between U.S. DOE and CAS to cooperate on FHR technology. This talk will provide an overview of selected FHR research and development activities at MIT that includes the materials irradiation tests at the MIT Research Reactor and a pre-conceptual design 10 MW Transportable FHR for off-grid applications.

Programme Director for Research, Energy Research Institute, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
Senior Advisor to the CEO, CEA (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission)


Abstract:

The Fukushima nuclear accident has brought to light key issues to be addressed related to the future of nuclear energy in the context of global warming, emerging renewable energies, demographic growth and public fear of nuclear. The lessons to be drawn have led to a reconsideration of risk assessment and risk management.

I shall address some of the scientific and technological challenges regarding the fission chain reaction benefits, while reducing further the risks of accident and diversion of nuclear materials for weapons. The promise from the next generation of breeder reactors which can ensure long-term energy security will be discussed. Special attention will be given to the fuel cycle, from fabrication, reprocessing and geological disposal of ultimate waste forms emphasizing the different time scales.

As in many technologies, progresses in the design of new functional materials and the predictability of their long-term performance constitute a major bottle-neck, which can however be solved through a combination of material multiscale simulations and highly controlled experiments. Examples will be given.
