DOE puts $9.35 million toward high-energy-density plasma research
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science (DOE-SC) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) on July 27 announced $9.35 million for 21 research projects in high-energy-density laboratory plasmas. High-energy-density (HED) plasma research, originally developed to support the U.S. nuclear weapons program, has applications in astrophysics, fusion power plant development, medicine, nuclear and particle physics, and radioisotope production.

The ANSI/ASME/ANS "Probabilistic Risk Assessment Standard for Advanced Non-Light Water Reactor Nuclear Power Plants" was approved and published January 28, 2021. The development of the Non-LWR PRA Standard encountered many technical issues that the working group overcame, such as: database development for the 1,500+ requirements; combining PRA elements from multiple PRA standards into one comprehensive PRA standard; formation of absolute importance measures and screening criteria; and appropriate language to allow PRA applications over the entire design/operation life cycle. This panel will discuss these technical issues and the lessons learned from the development of the Non-LWR PRA Standard.
