reactor core design and several key systems in Holtec's SMR-160, a small
modular pressurized water nuclear power plant, has progressed since WSC
simulator work in Phase II. To keep the simulator synchronized with the latest
design updates, it is necessary to integrate Studsvik Scandpower's S3R core
model (provided by Holtec) into the WSC 3KEYMASTER simulation environment,
which is also being upgraded to the latest version.
3KEYMASTER FlowBase and RELAP5 thermal-hydraulic models provided by WSC in prior
phases of the project require update, as well, due to design advancements in the
Reactor System and Reactor Coolant System of the SMR-160.
Phase III updated simulator will be suitable for Holtec to perform additional
steady state and transient analysis, as necessary.
