More specifically, CAE will upgrade the thermal-hydraulics model used to simulate the reactor’s primary cooling system with ANTHEM2000â„-. Also, CAE’s COMETâ„- mathematical model will be used to simulate the physics of the reactor core. ANTHEM2000â„- is an advanced two-phase thermal-hydraulic model with a graphical user interface that simplifies model maintenance. COMETâ„- is a reactor kinetics model that has been deployed on a large number of simulators worldwide. COMETâ„- is generated with the user-friendly CHORU.S.â„- utility that will also enhance Entergy’s ability to upgrade the reactor core model from one fuel cycle to the next utilizing a simpler process.
