Analysis of cycle optimization strategies at the Almaraz NPP

With the aim to establish the best cycle strategy until the expected end of operation of Almaraz NPP, a wide variety of sensitivity analysis have been performed, comparing different alternatives, and taking into account both front-end and back-end considerations.

A detailed analysis procedure has been developed to compare different scenarios, which could be used in the future in the case that the assumed calculation hypothesis change. This is relevant since the analysis results are strongly dependent on the assumed boundary conditions.

The article describes details of the used simulation tools, the analysis procedure, and presents comparisons between the different analyzed strategies, depending on the assumed hypothesis, finally summarizing the main obtained results and conclusions. The previous work has been the basis for the establishment of the optimum cycle strategy until the expected end of operation of Almaraz NPP for the assumed scenario and boundary conditions.
