- ItemAn optimisation-based decision support system framework for multi-objective in- core fuel management of nuclear reactor cores(Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, 2016-11-06) Schlunz, E. B.; Bokov, P. M.; Van Vuuren, J. H.ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The notion of in-core fuel management (ICFM) involves decision making in respect of the specific arrangement of fuel assemblies in a nuclear reactor core. This arrangement, referred to as a reload configuration, influences the efficiency and effectiveness of fuel usage in a reactor. A decision support system (DSS) may assist nuclear reactor operators in improving the quality of their reload configuration designs. In this paper, a generic optimisation-based DSS framework is proposed for multi-objective ICFM, with the intention of serving as a high-level formalisation of a computerised tool that can assist reactor operators in their complex ICFM decisions.
