Consultant recommends subsidies for Exelon plants
A research and consulting firm hired by Illinois governor J. B. Pritzker’s administration to scrutinize the financial fitness of Exelon’s Byron and Dresden nuclear plants approves of limited state subsidies for the facilities, according to a redacted version of the firm’s report made available yesterday.

Water flow calorimetry is utilized at DIII-D to quantify injected neutral beam power. As part of the system upgrades for the past year, the old CAMAC-based telemetry system for the WFC diagnostic was replaced by a fiber optic Ethernet-based telemetry system. The difficulty to obtain replacement CAMAC hardware and the prospect of lower noise and spurious signal sensitivity motivated the move to fiber optic Ethernet-based telemetry. The new system was installed and tested during the 2006 physics campaign startup phase. Both the CAMAC-based system and the new Ethernet-based system were used to acquire data from one common neutral beam ion source in the current year. System performance improvements are presented.
