Noise-based core monitoring and diagnostics: overview of the cortex project

  title={Noise-based core monitoring and diagnostics: overview of the cortex project},
  author={Christophe Demazi{\`e}re and Paolo Vinai and Mathieu Hursin and Stefanos D. Kollias and Joachim Herb},
This paper gives an overview of the CORTEX project, which is a Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union in the Euratom 2016-2017 work program, under the Horizon 2020 framework. CORTEX, which stands for CORe monitoring Techniques and EXperimental validation and demonstration, aims at developing an innovative core monitoring technique that allows detecting anomalies in nuclear reactors, such as excessive vibrations of core internals, flow blockage, coolant inlet perturbations…

Localizing Perturbations in Pressurized Water Reactors Using One-Dimensional Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

This work outlines an approach for localizing anomalies in nuclear reactor cores during their steady state operation, employing deep, one-dimensional, convolutional neural networks, and validated on hexagonal, pre-Konvoi, pressurized water, and VVER-1000 type nuclear reactors.
