Improvements to Passive Heat Removal Systems in SAS4A/SASSYS-1

For this project, ARC will work with Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) to enhance the SAS modeling capabilities for passive heat removal systems, including the generic RVACS model and the DRACS heat exchanger models. These enhancements will enable ARC to recover safety margins and have a better representation of the system’s response during long-term cooling events.

NEAMS [Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation] ThermalFluids Test Stand for Fluoride-Salt-Cooled, High- Temperature Reactor Development, Kairos Power LLC

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Idaho National Laboratory (INL), and Kairos Power, LLC partnered to implement a multiscale thermal-fluids hierarchy analysis methodology for Kairos’ fluoride high-temperature reactor (FHR). The project demonstrated Kairos Power’s design optimization process for the heat exchanger, a vital component of the reactor’s design.
