About the program

Pro-active mitigation and avoidance

This R&D program aims at gaining better understanding and possibility to pro-actively minimize interference on nuclear power plant (NPP) operation due to issues in the external grid. The benefits include revised safety and assessed safety margins, avoidance of extended outages and maintenance periods, fewer unplanned shut-downs, and lower cost of component replacement.

The program features activities within the area of nuclear power plant and external grid interaction.

Focus areas:

  1. NPP electrical system and components
  2. Design principles
  3. Grid interaction
