Exelon files to deactivate the Byron reactors
Exelon on June 16 filed with grid operator PJM Interconnection to deactivate the two Byron reactors in Illinois. The move came one day after the Illinois Senate adjourned without reaching an agreement on a comprehensive energy package that would have provided nearly $700 million to keep Byron’s reactors, as well as Exelon’s Dresden and Braidwood nuclear power plants, in operation. (In August of 2020, Exelon announced that it would close the economically challenged Byron and Dresden facilities in the fall of 2021 without some form of state aid to provide compensation for their clean power.) The state’s House of Representatives also adjourned earlier this week without taking up the bill.

11th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2019) Conference proceedings of a meeting held February 9-14th in Orlando, Florida, organized by the American Nuclear Society. The conference served as a forum for nuclear instrumentation and control (I&C) and human factors engineering (HFE) professionals to meet with leaders in industry and academia, discover the state of the technology, exchange information, and discuss future directions. These proceedings include more than 180 full papers that discuss how the advances in I&C and HFE are positioned well to play a key role in improving operating efficiencies as well as the development and deployment of the next generation of nuclear power systems.
The NPIC&HMIT 2019 book is available as print on demand and may take up to two weeks for the order to be fulfilled.
