NRC Issues Early Site Permit to Tennessee Valley Authority for SMRs at Clinch River Site

LCG, December 27, 2019--The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced on December 17 that the Commission has authorized the issuance of an Early Site Permit (ESP) for Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA's) Clinch River site near Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The ESP closes several site-related issues, including many environmental impacts, for small modular reactors (SMRs) at the site. The ESP is the first issued by the NRC for SMRs and will be valid for up to 20 years from date of issuance.

NRC Issues Subsequent License Renewals for First Time to Nuclear Reactors in Florida

LCG, December 11, 2019--The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff recently approved Florida Power & Light's (FPL's) application for an additional 20 years of operation for Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4. This is the first time the NRC has issued renewed licenses authorizing reactor operation from 60 to 80 years. The subsequent (or second) license renewals (SLRs) for Turkey Point Unit 3 and Unit 4 now expire on July 19, 2052 and April 10, 2053, respectively.

DOE Award on Dynamic Simulation Tools and Measurement-Based Control



LCG, Sept. 20, 2012 - LCG Consulting (LCG) of Los Altos, California, is a part of the consortium organized by Michigan State University, which is recently awarded a $1.5 million grant by the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability under DOE Advanced Modeling Grid Research Program.

The project team -- Michigan State University, University of Illinois-Chicago, Florida State University Center for Advanced Power Systems, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Southern California Edison, and LCG Consulting -- will develop a Lyapunov function based remedial action screening (L-RAS) tool that uses real-time data. This approach is expected to supports selection of appropriate remedial actions that are most likely to result in stabilizing trajectories.

For this project, LCG Consulting will provide high level advisory services in the areas of electric system modeling, develop and implement a user interface to L-RAS as well as develop and run scenarios using its proprietary UPLAN models to support the team modeling efforts.

The DOE Advanced Modeling Grid Research Program leverages scientific research in mathematics for application to power system models and software tools. It is envisioned that the selected projects will result in a new class of decision support tools that will simulate dynamic events and help inform operators on real-time conditions to maintain stability.
