Experts of OKB "GIDROPRESS" took part in the planned IAEA regional training course
Experts of OKB "GIDROPRESS" took part in the planned IAEA regional training course (IAEA REGIONAL PROJECT RER / 9/144 Regional Training Course No. 8 on Safety Assessment of Passive Systems), which took place 8 – 12 July in Obninsk.
The event was organized within the framework of planned cooperation between the IAEA and the Rosatom International Cooperation Department in the format of a Russian regional training Project aimed at development of international technical cooperation and promotion of Russian nuclear technologies in the market of Eastern European countries. The project was attended by representatives of research centers, design organizations and regulatory authorities of Bulgaria, Hungary, Russia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Turkey.
Representatives of OKB "GIDROPRESS", a leading design engineer Maxim Uvakin and a design engineer Mikhail Suslov, delivered lectures (“Practical application of KORSAR/GP code for VVER RP Safety justification” and “Development and verification of computational models of passive safety systems of VVER RP using KORSAR/GP code”). In addition to the lectures, the experts conducted explanatory discussions on the topic of the event in the area of interest of OKB "GIDROPRESS".
The lecture material was perceived by the audience with great interest due to the direct relation of the topic of lectures to the work and area of responsibility of the participants. The specialists answered a number of questions and commented on the peculiarities of using the KORSAR/GP code for calculation modeling of VVER reactors. Special attention was paid to the simulation of VVER RP passive safety systems.
The participants highly appreciated the engineering and technical level of the calculation justification of VVER reactor plants at OKB “GIDROPRESS”, as well as the practical significance of the event for improving their own qualifications.
Further cooperation with the Technical Academy of Rosatom is expected on issues related to the training of foreign specialists and the promotion of VVER technologies for potential foreign Customers.
