This thesis explores the role of nuclear power plants as load followers in a hybrid renewable energy system using thermal energy storage. In this case, the author describes a prismatic-core advanced high temperature reactor operating at constant power with molten salt storage supplying power to a secondary energy conversion system. The discussion includes a description of the model and its safety features.
