Ms. Christina Prah's paper was selected as a best paper of the KARP Fall conference 2022
Ms. Christina Prah (NPP second-year)’s paper was selected as a best paper of KARP (Korean Association for Radiation Protection) Fall conference 2022.
The Introduction of the paper is:
A nuclear accident is any operational deviation of a nuclear reactor from the normal that leads to the destruction of a reactor and containment shielding integrity and subsequent radiation release to the environment. Despite prior safety incidents, nuclear power has a long history of supplying the cheapest and enough electrical supply needed for expanding businesses. Nevertheless, the widespread use and commercialization of nuclear power plants in underdeveloped nations are hindered by the safety issues of every first-of-a-kind (FOAK) technology. Notably, public and regulatory distrust surrounding the nuclear industry's safety and security is increased by terrible historical occurrences, such as the TMI, Chernobyl, and Fukushima Therefore, every risk-related operation must, by definition, have emergency planning and preparedness to safeguard the public and the environment. Therefore, the IAEA proposes addressing nineteen (19) critical concerns before any nuclear facility is established, including emergency preparation. The Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ), in the vicinity of the nuclear power plant, is where additional considerations and management strategies are planned and put into reality in the event of a nuclear emergency. The EPZ is divided into the plume exposure pathway (up to 16km) and the ingestion exposure pathway (extends about 50 to 80km). Within the plume exposure pathway is the exclusion area boundary (EAB) set between 800m to 6000m, and a low population zone found behind the EAB with a population density of fewer than 25000 people. Additionally, the NRC Regulatory Guide 1.195 and 10 CFR 100 states that anyone within the exclusion area border (EAB) should not receive a thyroid dose above 3000mSv and a whole-body dose estimate greater than 250 mSv for two hours after the onset of a severe event. For a person residing within 30 days of the progression of the accident, the preceding requirements are the same for the low-population zone.
Control room habitability systems enable control room staff to maintain their safety while minimizing the effects of radioactive releases through safe plant operations in the event of accidents. To ensure habitability within 72 hours of accident progression, control room doses must not exceed 50 mSv according to the Code of Federal Regulations 10 CFR 50.34.
This project seeks to evaluate the maximum doses at the emergency planning zone and control room for APR1400, VVER1200, HPR1000, and Nuscale Power Module. It does this by adopting the SNAP/RADTRAD codes to simulate REA and FHA. The REA and FHA simulation output will estimate the doses at the EAB, LPZ, and control room. The four reactors understudy are pressurized, and light water reactors incorporated passive safety features.
Attachment: The paper “Analysis of Impact of Reactor Power and Fuel Fraction Damage on Radiation Dose Emission at the Emergency Planning Zone and Control Room During Postulated Design Basis and Severe Accidents, Ms. Christina Prah, Prof. Kim Ju-youl, The Korean Association for Radiation Protection fall conference, Jeju, Korea, November 23-25, 2022”

WORLD'S BEST OPERATION PERFORMANCE
Through steady technology development of nuclear power in Korea over the last 50 years, the nuclear group of Korea Electric Power Corporation (EEPCO, the sole utility company of Korea) has achieved the world's best operation performance.
The KEPCO nuclear group has combined ther forces to provide quality education with their vast experience and knowledge to make a contribution to human properity though nuclear power electricity by producing practical leadership-level professionals.

LEARNING BY DOING & THINKING
Curriculum of KINGS focuses on the realization of the "Learning by doing and thinking" system based on the basic philosophy of the curriculum development and KINGS HR model holding balanced practical capabilities that can be immediately applicable to the nuclear power industry.
Our curriculum provides master engineer(ME) and special research programs(TD doctor of technology) based on full day learning principle on kori nuclear power plant site that has 5 units in operation and another unites. With this circumstance, students will learn and experience the know-how of NPP design, construction, operation, maintenance and management.
Students will be provided envirronments for creative work:
Team-learning / Team-teaching system, The state of the art educational facilties.
CUTTING-EDGE EDUCATION FACILITIES FOR HANDS-ON CAMPUS
