Nuclear Plant Reliability and Information Lab


The major improvements in the quality of human life were achieved by using extra source of energy such as coal, oil, gas, and nuclear. Before humankind moves to the Fusion energy era, nuclear fission energy will play a critical role for energy supply. We are aiming at assuring the intrinsic safety of nuclear fission power, so that its merits such as no greenhouse gas emission and reliable supply at low cost can contribute the sustainable growth of society.

The history of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) spans nearly two hundred years beginning with its founding in 1824. Rensselaer launched its plan for NE research in the late 1950s. Our lab is nesting at Rensselaer since 2016. Yes, we are working to develop an inherently safe nuclear power based on the researches on risk assessment and new intelligence. Our research covers Passive safety system design and operation, Dynamic risk assessment, Digitalized plant risk quantification, Cyber security, Software reliability estimation, Emergency operation procedure, and Human operators behavior.
We make systems safer
