TeaM Cables Autumn School - Cable Ageing Management in Nuclear Power Plants

By Adeline PAUL
TeaM Cables Autumn School - Cable Ageing Management in Nuclear Power Plants
Monday, November 15 2021 14:30
to Wednesday, November 17 2021 18:00

Funded by the European Commission, TeaM Cables – European Tools and Methodologies for an efficient ageing management of nuclear power plant Cables – is a research project in the field of nuclear safety and long-term operation.

PROGRAM

Note that this is a provisional program – slight changes are possible until the school takes place

Day 1 - Monday 15th November: Introduction basic knowledge on cables (afternoon)

  • From the conception to the qualification of cables (NEXANS)
  • Degradation of polymeric materials used in NPP due to the combination of radiation and thermal stresses (ENSAM)

Day 2 - Tuesday 16th November: Condition Monitoring Techniques (microscale and macroscale)

  • Overview of cable monitoring in the world (UJV)
  • Chemical-physical methods to evaluate aging of polymeric materials used in NPP (IRSN)
  • The use of the EPR technique to assess the aging of polymer composites (INCT)
  • Mechanical tests for aging evaluation (VTT)
  • Dielectric spectroscopy for aging assessment (UNIBO)
  • THz technique for evaluation of aging of NPP cables (IZFP)
  • TDR/FDR technique for evaluation of aging of NPP cables (CEA)

Day 3 - Wednesday 17th November: Ageing modelling of NPP cables

  • Kinetic modelling of polymer aging (ENSAM)
  • Virtual polymer (EDF)
  • Multiscale modelling of electrical properties (UNIBO)
  • Mechanical model (VTT)
  • Practical sessions: Dielectric spectroscopy (UNIBO) and other techniques to be confirmed.

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

To inform us of your interest in joining the school, please pre-register on this page by 15th September 2021.

Participation to all sessions is free of charge.

Catering for lunches and coffee breaks on the three days of the School is paid by the organisers.

Participants only need to pay their accommodation and travel costs. A dedicated website will be open in September to book accommodation on site.
