On 23, May 2016 the IAEA regional training course/workshop was started in ROSATOM-CICE&T under the framework of the Technical Cooperation Project (TC Project): Building Capacity for Infrastructure Development and Safety Assessment of Water Cooled Water Moderated Power Reactor Technology with Advanced Safety Features: the Case of WWER/PWR. This Project is aimed at building the necessary competencies in the area of safety assessment in the countries interested in WWER/PWR technologies.
Representatives of 8 countries (Bulgaria, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Lithuania, Poland, Turkey and the Czech Republic) participate in this IAEA regional training course/workshop as trainees. The course was opened by lectures of IAEA expert Dr. Manwoong KIM.
Among the trainers from Russian side are the leading experts from the following organizations: OKB “GIDROPRESS”, National Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute”, RFNC-VNIIEF (Sarov), FSUE NITI (Sosnovy Bor), IBRAE RAN (Moscow), SSC RF – IPPE (Obninsk), ESRMC “Simulation Systems” (Obninsk) and ROSATOM-CICE&T.
The course’s programme is focused on the Russian computer codes used for safety assessment of nuclear installations and nuclear power plants (NPP) with WWER and PWR. The codes developers give an overview of current status and performance capabilities of the codes and conduct master classes and demonstrations of the codes application. A distinctive feature of this course is to significantly increase the share of practical exercises to better understand the safety related phenomena in the technological system of NPP.
Duration of the workshop is 2 weeks.
