As energy markets continue to evolve with stronger contributions from intermittent sources, the ability to execute changes in power production in response to changing electrical grid demand increases in value. While many early reactor concepts and demonstrations may have exhibited load-following feedback mechanisms, the thermodynamic optimization of contemporary systems and fuel-utilization optimization of contemporary cores make such maneuvers difficult. This panel session will discuss the challenges and opportunities in thermal hydraulics engineering related to the deployment of innovative solutions to enable load-follow in future energy markets.
