Course ID: Course Duration:
N/A 10.0 Day(s)


ND200 covers the Westinghouse Reload Process in detail and provides step-by-step instructions on the various analyses which make up the Reload Process with a focus on Nuclear Design. The course will cover the nuclear design portion of each of the key phases of the reload process: fuel management, Reload Safety Analysis Checklist (RSAC), Nuclear Design Report (NDR), and Low Power Physics Testing (LPPT). The training will be performed with the current Westinghouse Neutronics code suite, NEXUS/ANC9, and cover introductory and advanced usage of the code system.
Registration deadline is August 12, 2022.
