EPRI is at the center of a quickly evolving energy landscape. With significant challenges facing the electric industry and the world, we are always seeking top talent with hands-on experience to address issues as they relate to the generation, delivery, use, management and environmental responsibility of global electricity.

Energy systems (ES) are a complex and constantly evolving research area. Because energy systems are multi-layered and distributed, there is a growing interest in integrating heterogeneous entities (energy sources, energy storage, micro-grids, grid networks, buildings, electrical vehicles, etc.) into distribution systems.

The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on Saturday 26 Aprilat the No. 4 reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat in the north of the Ukrainian SSR.

It is considered the worst nuclear disaster in history and is one of only two nuclear energy disasters rated at seven—the maximum severity—on the International Nuclear Event Location: Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Pripyat.

A simulator that can perform detailed modelling of the response of the systems of a given nuclear power plant (NPP) under normal, abnormal and accident conditions.

The simulator is equipped with a replica of the NPP main control room panels where operators can interface with the simulated plant systems in the control room environment. The requirements in Mandatory Appendices II, III, and IV to ASME’s Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants (OM Code) for check-valve condition monitoring, motor-operated valve (MOV) inservice testing, and air-operated valve (AOV) inservice testing, respectively, are identified.

Each requirement in Appendix II is mapped to specific. Battery University™ is a free educational website offering hands-on battery information to engineers, educators, media, students and battery users alike. The tutorials evaluate the advantages and limitations of battery chemistries, advise on best battery choice and suggest ways to extend battery life.

The information is compiled from. Over the years, EPRI has produced numerous products that both address maintenance issues on power plant equipment and focus on improving its reliability. However, the nuclear power industry does not always effectively track, assess, and ultimately implement these products into the day-to-day operations of their power plants.
