Reliability and Safety of industrial systems - application to energy systems (mainly nuclear power plants and transmission power systems)


Abstract : Topics of interest for which research projects could be conducted: * methodology of probabilistic safety studies - dynamic reliability * probabilistic blackout risk assessment in transmission power systems * congestion risk analysis and Active Network Management in long-term planning of the grid in the presence of distributed generation and increasing share of renewable * probabilistic risk assessment of short-term planning of the grid in the presence of distributed generation and increasing share of renewable * high-efficiency Monte Carlo algorithms for the identification and evaluation of rare scenarios * impact of parametric uncertainties on the delineation of accident scenarios in probabilistic risk assessment * modeling of industrial equipment aging * partial restoration of the performances of equipments following imperfect preventive maintenance actions * maintenance and replacement policies of equipments subject to technological obsolescence * risk assessment of radioactive waste disposal * uncertainty propagation in burnup calculations for nuclear fuel * risk perception and ethics * ...
