The CORTEX project: Improving nuclear fleet operational availability
We often define noise as an unwanted disturbance, especially acoustic in nature. Neutron noise, by contrast, is a direct measure of the dynamics of a nuclear core. It can be used for core monitoring without disturbing plant operation and by using the existing core instrumentation. The European CORTEX project aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique using neutron noise, while capitalizing on the latest developments in neutronic modeling, signal processing, and artificial intelligence.

While we enjoyed a tremendously successful ANS Virtual Annual Meeting earlier this month that involved nearly 2,350 of you, we realize it wasn’t the same as an in-person meeting. It’s why we continue to move full-speed ahead with the planning of the 2020 ANS Winter Meeting, scheduled for November 15-19 in Chicago. We will do whatever we can to have a safe meeting, but if that is not possible, we will build off our experience from the Annual Meeting and have an even more complete virtual meeting this fall.
We encourage you to be a part of the Winter Meeting no matter if it’s held in-person or online. Submit a paper today to be considered as a presenter. The deadline is only a few days away, please view the guidelines on how to submit.
Stay tuned for more details later this summer and, more importantly, stay safe. We look forward to (hopefully) welcoming you to Chicago in November!
The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) is an Energy Innovation Hub sponsored by United States Department of Energy (DOE) and based at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). CASL combines fundamental research and technology development through an integrated partnership of government, academia, and industry that extends across the nuclear energy enterprise.
