XEDOR : Risk Informed PCI Management Tool - For BWR reactors

Adjustments in the control rod patterns used to manage reactivity in your BWR are a necessary part of your operations strategy. For the first time ever, real-time data on the mechanical state of the fuel can be calculated with Framatome’s XEDOR Pellet-Clad Interaction (PCI) management tool. A rigorously validated reduced order computational model tracks the changes in the dimensions of fuel pellets and cladding over the life of the fuel. The impact of a planned control sequence change can then be accurately predicted, providing reactor engineers with the knowledge needed to optimally design the maneuver.
