Nuclear Industry and Fukushima Aftermath

Meeting of the R5 Central Texas Section (Austin) IE13/PE31/IA34/PEL35 Joint Society Chapter

Austin TX, USA, January 24, 2017

2017 01 Dr Dale E Klein2017 01 Austin

Speaker:  Dr. Dale E. Klein

Abstract:  Nuclear energy has a clear technical advantage as a source for base load carbon free electricity. However, the economic advantage for new nuclear energy plants is less clear and varies significantly from country to country. The presentation will discuss the current and near term status of nuclear energy in the U.S. and the world. This will include the trend for new nuclear plants for both large light water nuclear plants, small modular reactors and non-light water nuclear plants. In addition, the cause of the Fukushima accident will be discussed as well as the current clean-up activities. The safety enhancements for post Fukushima nuclear energy will also be discussed.

SAE 2016

The SAE Summer Academy on Energy will be held in Budapest, Hungary, August 14-19, 2016. The main goal of the summer academy is to make a medium term energy strategy for a fictional country and to modify this plan on the go according to a major crisis that affects the whole energy production.

Organized by Student Association Energy and Budapest University of Technology and Economics SB PES/IAS Chapter.

Report of Ms. Gail Hayhoe, MASc Student, University of Toronto, supported by the IAS CMD WIE Initiative to attend SAE2

The Summer Academy on Energy '16, held at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, was a wonderful experience, full of lectures, group work, and site visits all in a city steeped with culture. The summer academy entailed 11 hours of professional lectures, 15 hours group working on a case study of a fictional country's power system and 4 hours of professional site visits. Some of my favourite activities were the guest lecture by IEEE IAS's President-Elect, Tomy Sebastian, group work on the case study, and listening to each group's solutions to the case study. The organizers also arranged a bus tour of the city to see historical landmarks and other opportunities to appreciate Budapest, which the international attendees truly benefitted from and enjoyed. I am very grateful for the support to assist in attending this event.

Report of Ms. Ahlem Abouda, student at the National Engineering School of Gabes (ENIG) - Tunisia, supported by the IAS CMD WIE initiative to attend SAE²

The Summer Academy on Energy ’16 held at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BUTE), was a very great opportunity to learn more, have new friends and discover the beautiful city of Budapest.During the summer academy, we attended 11 hours of professional lectures in we handled different topics like the medium-term energy strategies, the different types of renewable energy, the nuclear energy in the world (role, use, safety, cost, effects), renewable energy from the view of economists, the blackouts in the power systems, and the best lecture was presented by the IEEE IAS president—elect Mr. Tomy Sebastian about the automotive electrification. We also had 15 hours of group working on a case study of a fictional country’s power system.Moreover, we had 4 hours of professional site visits: the KFKI research campus (the Budapest Neutron Center BNC and the Nuclear Research Laboratory) and the High Voltage Laboratory in the BUTE.The organizers also took us to visit some historical sites, restaurants, we went on a bus tour around the city and we played some cultural games.Overall, this experience will allow me to achieve the high standards I’m aiming for. So I’m very grateful for the support to attend such a great event.
