REAC 240 Site Specific Release Pathways for BWR and PWR

While nuclear power plants share engineering elements, each site has unique design aspects that can impact the possible release of radiological material to the environment. Students will be provided with a detailed review of the engineering and safety features of both Boiling Water (BWRs) and Pressurized Water (PWRs) Reactors, while focusing on a specific Illinois site to develop a more detailed understanding of that facility. A discussion of plant design elements will focus on and how these can impact the selection of release pathways and the source term, especially as it relates to performing dose assessments and developing protective action recommendations (PARs). With six operating facilities in the state, it is expected that this course should be retaken regularly as a different site and/or source term/release path will be the focus with each offering.
