Moisture-Carryover Performance Optimization Using Machine Learning

A data-driven model for predicting moisture carryover (MCO) in the General Electric Type-4 boiling water reactor (BWR) was constructed using a physics-constrained artificial intelligence technique.




Characterizing Chaotic Systems

Under certain operating conditions in a nuclear power plant’s boiling water reactor (BWR), a condition arises where the pilot stages of the three-stage safety relief valves chatter sporadically. This chattering degrades the valve’s performance and eventually leads to discharge-stage leaking. The cause of this behavior is still unknown, and it used to be impossible to determine which valve was chattering.

Moisture Carryover (MCO) in Nuclear Reactors

Boiling water reactors (BWRs) require one to remove liquid moisture from a two-phase mixture as it exits the core. But excess moisture carryover (MCO) can lead to the intergranular stress corrosion cracking of turbine blades, along with damage to other plant components. Too much MCO can also cause an increase in employees’ exposure levels to Cobalt-60 (Co-60), which is carried over in the droplets that leave the steam dryers.
