ANS Student Conference is going virtual.

About the Student Webinar Series
This exciting new initiative was developed by ANS following the postponement of the 2020 ANS Student Conference due to COVID-19. The series, which is free and open to all, includes:
March 27: Opening Plenary featuring Rita Baranwal
April 3: Panel on the “Importance of University and Industry Collaboration for Design Projects"
April 10: Student Design Competition
Mark your calendars! The 2021 ANS Student Conference has been rescheduled for next April 8-10 at NC State University in Raleigh, NC.

Micro-reactors are very small nuclear reactors capable of operating independently from the electric grid to supply highly resilient power, and are well suited to serve the power needs for remote communities that currently do not have access to reliable, resilient and affordable energy. A typical commercial microreactor is envisioned to be a mobile nuclear power plant in a 2-20 MWe range that is fully factory built, fueled and assembled. It is transportable to the remote site via ground, sea or air with black start, renewable integration and island mode operation capability. They are designed to be self-regulating and walk-away safe with minimal operator intervention. NEI estimates that Microreactors could deliver electricity at rates between $0.09/kWh and $0.33/kWh. This presentation will describe ‘genericized’ microreactor designs being pursued by various vendors, technology gaps and the role of DOE’s Microreactor R&D.

Microreactors are a specific subset of small modular reactors characterized by a generation capacity of approximately 1 to 20 megawatts of electricity. Hear the perspectives from experts on how these reactors offer a combination of reliability and operational flexibility that no other small electrical generating system can match, including mutually enabling abilities when linked with other carbon-free energy sources. These reactors utilize a small land footprint, can be transported using a semi-truck, and potentially operate for years without refueling. These microreactors will empower many innovative uses in our future clean energy economy.

Panelists will highlight how these paradigm-shifting technologies will enable remote villages, island communities, military operations, off-grid consumers, and high-temperature process heat customers to benefit from carbon-free nuclear energy. The panelists will discuss the state of the technology development, benefits, economics, potential customers, and opportunities to incorporate cutting-edge innovations, such as additive manufacturing and remote/autonomous operations.
Be in the know! Join your peers for the third annual Nuclear Innovation Week.

The best and brightest in nuclear innovation arena will gather in Washington, D.C., March 23-26, 2020. Nuclear Innovation Week activities will spotlight research and development, demonstration, and deployment of nuclear technologies to decarbonize the domestic and global economies.
Meet innovative industry leaders and learn about current strategies and new technologies during the week-long activities, including the Nuclear R&D Summit, the Nuclear Simulation Celebration, and networking events. Participate in the Storm the Hill event and convince your Congressional delegation of the importance of nuclear energy.

Welcome to the webinar series of the Clean Energy Ministerial’s (CEM) Nuclear Innovation: Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) initiative. The initiative envisions a world in which nuclear innovation advances clean energy goals and provides societal benefits. We see no one-size-fits-all solution to meet energy needs and seek to foster collaboration among clean energy supporters to explore diverse solutions, including nuclear energy technology solutions, for clean, reliable, resilient, and integrated systems, now and in the future.

A major design goal for Generation IV nuclear energy systems is to reduce or eliminate the
likelihood and/or extent of reactor core damage incurred during an off-normal operating event,
thereby eliminating the need for offsite emergency response. One approach for achieving this
objective is to develop inherently safe reactor designs that can passively dissipate decay heat to
the environment without relying on operator action during an event of this type. Historically,
this approach has been taken for both sodium- and gas-cooled Generation IV reactor types by
providing Reactor Cavity Cooling Systems (RCCS) that are designed to passively dissipate decay
heat to the environment by natural convection while maintain fuel temperature below the
threshold for onset of core damage.
This presentation will begin by providing a high level overview of RCCS systems that have been
developed for advanced reactor designs over the years. This will be followed by a summary of
large scale integral effect tests that are currently underway at Argonne to provide licensingquality
data for two of these systems; i.e., air- and water-cooled RCCS concepts.
