ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

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.
12th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2021)

Ryan S. Flamand (NuScale)
Jeffrey C. Joe
Janet Davis (ANS)
This session features a real-time demonstration of the NuScale digital control room simulator. Mr. Ryan Flamand, Plant Operations Supervisor at NuScale, has been leading a team that has developed and maintained the NuScale digital control room simulator, and is the featured speaker for this session. Ryan will demonstrate how the NuScale simulator works, explain its underlying design philosophy and concept of operations, and answer questions from the audience.
