Digital Twin

Merge your digital thread, controls theory, artificial intelligence, and online monitoring into a single cohesive unit. A virtual model comprehensively captures all relevant aspects of the underlying system and enable autonomous control, predictive maintenance, and misuse detection technologies.

The Nuclear Materials Discovery and Qualification Initiative (NMDQi) is designed to accelerate nuclear materials qualification to fulfill the promises of early and advanced reactor technologies as a safe, clean, and low-cost base-load energy. NMDQi will establish tools and capabilities that will greatly accelerate the nuclear fuels and materials development process.

Digital engineering to advance nuclear energy deployement

Digital engineering is a game changer for nuclear energy.

In an industry vulnerable to cost overruns and schedule delays, digital engineering offers hope for accelerated deployment of advanced nuclear reactors.

How so? With digital engineering, reactor designers can link all the nuclear engineering, systems engineering, project management, and design in a centralized system – a “digital twin” – so teams can modify the plans and designs as needed in real time prior to the physical systems being built. This improves both quality and efficiency, driving lower costs and better schedule adherence.
