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.

A review of workforce trends in the nuclear community
The nuclear community is undergoing a moment of unprecedented interest and growth not seen in decades. The passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act are providing a multitude of new funding opportunities for the nuclear community, and not just the current fleet. A mix of technologies and reactor types are being evaluated and deployed, with Vogtle Units 3 and 4 coming on line later this year, the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Projects of X-energy and TerraPower, and NuScale’s work with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to build a first-of-a-kind small modular reactor, making this is an exciting time to join the nuclear workforce.

An equilibrium field (EQ) power supply (PS) circuit using a feedback H-bridge pulse-width-modulation controller has been developed to control the plasma horizontal position and to satisfy the requirement of plasma equilibrium in the Keda Torus eXperiment (KTX) reversed field pinch. Results from simulations of plasma discharge aimed at achieving plasma equilibrium demonstrate the success of the PS circuit design. Additionally, this design provides a feasible control solution for achieving equilibrium conditions in future KTX PS upgrades. The details of the EQ model and simulations of the poloidal field circuit are presented and discussed in this technical note.
