Advanced Nuclear Reactor Designs to Get Digital Twins


Published: May 15, 2020

Nine projects will get $27 million in federal funding to develop digital twin technology for promising advanced nuclear reactor designs—including Kairos Power. Argonne National Laboratory will get $2.2 million to slash the reactor design’s O&M costs through advanced sensing and automation. The University of Michigan, meanwhile, will get $5.2 million to develop a scalable digital twin that will be first validated on a molten salt loop operating on campus and then applied to Kairos’s reactor design to demonstrate how the technology can be used to optimize the plant.
