This journal article describes a virtual power plant arrangement that combines intermittent offshore wind farm production with firming capacity generated by small to medium-sized reactors. The authors found that the combined system offered several advantages including improved economic performance, flexibility, and reliability.
The authors of this journal article propose a nuclear renewable energy integration (NREI) system that incorporates nuclear and wind energies in combination with high-temperature steam electrolysis (HTSE) to yield hydrogen. The nuclear component is represented by a small modular gas-cooled reactor. The authors compare the economics of three cases: nuclear power plant, nuclear and wind-combined facility, and a nuclear-wind-hydrogen production facility, using wholesale electricity prices and market conditions from the PJM deregulated and the Mid-C regulated market hubs.
This journal article evaluates the potential for small modular reactors (SMRs) in the United States, develops a techno-economic assessment of SMRs and then uses the model to evaluate U.S. regulatory fees structures.
This journal article details the integration concept of solar photovoltaics into a small nuclear power plant. The concept also details the role of thermal energy storage in the hybrid plant.
