Cost drivers of nuclear steam cycle construction
Interest in reducing carbon emissions around the world continues to climb. As a complement to the increasing deployment of variably generating renewables, advanced nuclear is commonly shown in net-zero grid modeling for 2050 because it represents firm electricity production that can flex in output with load demands.1 However, these projections are challenged by the high levelized cost of electricity associated with legacy nuclear construction, which is often more than double that of modern combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants.

The TCR program is working towards establishing and maturing the processes and procedures for adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) in the design and fabrication of nuclear structures, systems and components through a demonstration. A helium-cooled 3-MWt microreactor, TCR pushes the boundaries of complexity of core fuel and flow-channel geometries enabled by the AM in order to boost operational efficiencies.
In this special panel session, experts from the TCR program will present the approach and progress on the TCR instrumentation and control (I&C) system.
