Neutron noise monitoring during plant operation expedites flexure replacement at Salem-1
The nuclear industry has historically relied on intermittent ultrasonic test and visual inspections of pressurized water reactor components to identify and manage degradation. While this reactive approach has proven to be effective, imagine a scenario in which the degradation could propagate throughout the reactor internals, making a more proactive measure necessary to avoid a major enterprise risk to the plant. Could a utility identify the onset of degradation within the reactor internals during plant operation? If so, could a repair be developed prior to the next refueling outage to prevent additional, cascading degradation? That is exactly the situation that Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) and Westinghouse engineers were able to navigate over the course of the 2019–2020 operating cycle at Salem Unit 1, resulting in a tremendous success for the plant and a historic landmark in the nuclear industry, while earning the team a 2021 Nuclear Energy Institute Top Innovative Practice (TIP) award.

The Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) created the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) in 2009 to consolidate university support under one program. NEUP plays a key role in helping DOE-NE accomplish its mission of leading the nation’s investment in the development and exploration of advanced nuclear science and technology by funding nuclear energy research at U.S. colleges and universities and providing student education support through the Integrated University Program (IUP).
