WELCOME TO THE CORTEX PROJECT
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Launched in September 2017, CORTEX aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique that allows detecting anomalies in nuclear reactors.
Workshops & Courses
A series of workshops and courses will be organised during the CORTEX project to disseminate knowledge and train the scientific community.
All of the project’s resources will be available directly from the website. This includes: newsletters, promotional materials, publications, public deliverables and presentations.
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 1
To develop simulation tools that will be specifically dedicated to the modelling of the stationary fluctuations’ effect in power reactors with a high level of fidelity
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 3
Advanced signal analysis and machine learning techniques will be combined with reactor transfer function modelling capabilities
STRATEGIC OBEJECTIVE 2
The validation of the simulation tools will be performed using reactor experiments specifically designed for noise analysis applications
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 4
The modelling capabilities for the estimation of the reactor transfer function and the advanced signal analysis techniques need to be combined into a set of tools that can be directly used for analysing plant data and performing core diagnostics
When: Thursday 21 February 2019 Where: ÚJV Řež, a. s. Hlavni 130, Řež, 250 68 Husinec Czech Republic The programme of this workshop will be the following: Introduction (basic Cortex info) Neutron noise simulation for the development and testing…
Two workshops arranged by CORTEX The first event took place on 22-25 April 2018, at UPM, Spain and was devoted to introducing basic techniques for signal analysis and their possible applications to nuclear power plants (14 participants registered to this event). …
In Work Package 4, actual plant data will be used to demonstrate the applicability as well as usefulness of the newly developed tools. Emphasis will be placed on the “detection” of abnormal fluctuations, on the understanding of their origin, and on…
The PHYSOR 2018 conference: Reactor Physics Paving The Way Towards More Efficient Systems, will be held from 22 to 24 April 2017 in Cancun, Mexico. It will focus on both modeling/simulation & experimental aspects of reactor physics and exploration of…
The International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE) is the premier global conference on nuclear reactor technology. This conference is a “must-attend” for anyone who wants to stay technically current and on top of industry trends and developments. It features Industry…
