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.

Project resources

All of the project’s resources will be available directly from the website. This includes: newsletters, promotional materials, publications, public deliverables and presentations.

FOUR

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

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
