Special Issue "Optimal Design and Analysis of Advanced Nuclear Reactors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2024 | Viewed by 2102
Interests: nuclear reactor design; safety and simulation of nuclear power system; nuclear reactor thermal hydraulic; artificial intelligence
Nuclear energy is an efficient and clean type of energy. The nuclear reactor-based energy supply is characterized by high energy density, low carbon emissions, long sustainable operation time and wide use. Reactor technology continues to evolve, with a large number of passive generation III+ and generation IV reactor designs emerging. All designs focus on the reactor's inherent safety improvement, while allowing for a more efficient and flexible energy supply. With the development of experimental measurement and computer simulation technology, more accurate analytical methods provide support for the design and optimization of advanced reactors; thus, the economy and safety of reactors would be enhanced.
This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the most recent advances related to the theory, design, modeling and optimization of all types of advanced nuclear reactors. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Thermal-hydraulic characteristics of advanced reactors;
- Multi-physics coupling in the reactor core;
- Nuclear reactor systems design;
- Safety analysis of advanced reactors;
- Explicable machine learning in nuclear energy;
- Advanced optimization algorithms.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
