​​​​​​​​​​Risk-Informed Plant Health and Asset Management​​​​​


Goa​​​l

To develop better analytical methods and tools for the nuclear power industry to make risk-informed decisions regarding plant equipment reliability and asset management.

Researchers develop data-analytics tools coupled with risk-informed methods to manage and optimize plant-asset life cycles, budgets, and schedules. These tools and methods enhance the plant operator's ability to manage the performance and health of a nuclear power facility while reducing labor and equipment costs.


Out​​​come

The project will produce a risk-analysis framework designed to decrease the operational cost and enhance the safety of nuclear power plants in the short-term (for maintenance optimization) and the long-term (during periods of subsequent license renewal). The software and supporting tools will be made available to utilities and vendors that are considering extended operations.


Planned Major A​​ccomplishments:

  • 2022—demonstrate an enterprise multi-risk analysis framework supporting maintenance strategies and long-term capital-investment optimization.
