Expert systems applications within the nuclear industry by John A. Bernard Download PDF EPUB FB2

Expert systems are a new and fast-changing field of artificial intelligence that is currently being adapted for use in all areas of the nuclear industry. This monograph provides both a compilation and a critical review of the ways expert systems can be applied to the design, management, and operation of research, test, and commercial power.

Expert Systems within BNFL, the method for developing off-line Expert Systems, applications within BNFL and future developments affecting off-line Expert Systems.

Background: BNFL have been involved with Expert Systems technology since when R & DD at Sellafield looked at the potential of Expert Systems to support chemical plant operations. Expert system applications in nuclear plants: discussion of the key issues Abstract: The authors discuss the key issues that relate to the viability of expert systems in the nuclear power arena.

Bringing a nuclear power generating station under the control of an expert system will require an extensive program of coordinated research development. capabilities of expert systems and identifies features for the future development and use of Expert Systems in Nuclear Power Plants.

Section 3 provides an overview of the discussions and investigations into the current status of Expert Systems in NPPs.

This Section develops a method for assessing the overall benefit of different. The utilization of expert systems within the nuclear industry is examined.

Topics reviewed include factors motivating the industry to develop expert systems, areas of application, and issues related to acceptance. It was found that expert systems, as currently conceived, can be used for managerial tasks such as ensuring regulatory compliance and for interactive by: 3.

The nuclear industry, like other high-hazard industries, relies on human performance to support safety. Whilst the primary reliance is on design and engineering – the integrity of the nuclear containment system, the performance of emergency cooling, the availability of standby power generation – individuals must perform their work effectively.

Abstract. The accidents at TMI-2 and Chernobyl have produced initiatives aimed at improving nuclear plant emergency response capabilities. Among them are the development of emergency response facilities with capabilities for the acquisition, processing, and diagnosis of data which are needed to help coordinate plant operations, engineering support and management under emergency conditions [1].

Finally, General Electric’s Global Nuclear Fuel (GNF), Framatome, and Westinghouse are all working with DOE to help bring new accident tolerant fuels to market within the next 10 years. These new technologies will further enhance the safety and performance of.

The safe and effective use of nuclear techniques requires reliable instrumentation for measurement, diagnostic and control. Advanced nuclear instrumentation is used for many sophisticated applications, such as precision imaging systems for medical diagnostics, remote sensors for environmental safety or the probing and manufacturing of the most modern materials.

Applications of Expert Systems. The test outlines some illustrative minicases of expert systems applications. These include areas such as high-risk credit decisions, advertising decision making, and manufacturing decisions. Generic Categories of Expert System Applications.

Abstract. This paper reports recent trends in the application of expert systems technology to nuclear power plants. As such, it is the second in a series of updates to the state-of-the-art review that was published in by Bernard and Washio on the utilization of expert systems within the nuclear industry.

more resistant materials. Thus, this book is devoted to addressing various important fundamental and application aspects of materials that are used in nuclear reactors. Types of Nuclear Energy Nuclear energy can be derived from many forms such as nuclear fission energy, fusion energy, and radioisotopic energy.

Nuclear Fission Energy. Nuclear Engineering International covers the civil nuclear power industry in news, in-depth technical articles and informed opinion. It also features a nuclear industry supply chain buyers' guide arranged by subject and country. It complements a monthly subscription print magazine and annual World Nuclear Industry Handbook.

Hayes-Roth divides expert systems applications into 10 categories illustrated in the following table. The example applications were not in the original Hayes-Roth table, and some of them arose well afterward.

Any application that is not footnoted is described in the Hayes-Roth book. Using digital applications can help build capacity in efficient management of nuclear information and resources, and improve skills and competences of nuclear facility personnel, participants agreed at a recent IAEA Technical Meeting on Digital Applications to Support Nuclear Knowledge Management Programmes.

Focusing on innovative approaches to training and education, 71. The answer depends on what aspect of nuclear science or engineering in which one is interested.

There are numerous texts on introductory nuclear physics, which either incorporate some basic material on special relativity and quantum physics/mechanics, which are appropriate for undergraduates, or slightly more advanced texts for graduates, which assume one has a physics degree.

An expert system embodies knowledge of a particular application area combined with inference mechanisms that enable the program to employ this knowledge in problem-solving situations[26]. Expert systems have now been developed in a variety of areas, including chemistry, medical diagnosis, geology, computer-system configuration, and mathematics.

An expert system is made up of three parts: A user interface - This is the system that allows a non-expert user to query (question) the expert system, and to receive user-interface is designed to be a simple to use as possible.; A knowledge base - This is a collection of facts and knowledge base is created from information provided by human experts.

Hence the programme for nuclear power station construction needs to address C&I architecture at an early stage. The typical order for C&I systems specification, design and implementation would be as follows: a. Define the overall C&I architecture, including space and separation requirements b.

Prepare system functional specifications for C&I. nuclear electricity proved to be more influenced by the steam supply system and the containment building than previously anticipated. The desirability of providing in one book the basic concepts as well as the complex formulations for advanced applications has resulted in a more compre­ hensive textbook than any previously authored in the field.

accountants and auditors are ill-defined and unstructured, problems which are especially well-suited for expert system application. The paper briefly describes the expert system environment within accounting and auditing, illustrate a major criticism in the design of these systems, and introduce a potential solution to the weakness.

There are proposals by the nuclear industry and the federal government to create, essentially, parking lots for nuclear waste (“Central Interim Storage” sites) in Texas, New Mexico, and possibly other locations where it would sit outside, in the same type of storage currently in use at most reactor sites, for undetermined periods of time.

The realm of atomic and nuclear physics Nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies the building blocks and interactions of atomic nuclei.

Atomic physics (or atom physics) is the field of physics that studies atoms as an isolated system of electrons and an atomic nucleus.

It is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around. The nuclear industry and the nuclear-policy community will also need to make new accommodations with one another in an era when climate change rivals nuclear annihilation as the globe’s top threat.

Neither of these key stakeholders is monolithic, and it is unrealistic to expect that all of the parties involved will be willing to work together.

They sidestep instruction manuals that need to be extensively read and understood, and either apply human knowledge in an organized fashion, or induce general rules from specific instances.This benefit is derived from a patented Argonne technique for thermal-hydraulic (T-H) function classification and component characteristics representation, which allows PRODIAG to be applied to T-H systems in power plants, both nuclear and fossil, the chemical processing industry and petroleum refineries with no need for additional verification.
