According to experts, the automated system eliminates the risk of human error.

Electric power storage systems developed at Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU NETI) can be used on nuclear icebreakers and nuclear power plants to save electricity and improve safety at operating reactors. This was reported to TASS on Monday in the press service of the university.

"Electricity storage systems developed by NSTU NETI scientists can be installed on nuclear icebreakers - they will help avoid accidents at nuclear reactors," NSTU NETI said. Electric energy storage devices were developed by specialists of the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering of NSTU NETI and the Institute of Power Electronics.

The advantage of the drive developed in Novosibirsk is electronic control circuits and programs that allow you to control the modes of operation autonomously, without human intervention. The system itself determines when it is necessary to store energy, and when to turn on its return, analyzing many parameters of energy consumption. This is an automated system that eliminates the risk of human error.

Storage devices created using the developed technology are already being used in several localities in Tuva, Yakutia, Chukotka and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, allowing to accumulate electricity during its excess and return to the grid during a shortage.

"Our accumulation system is an additional source of electricity and allows you to save diesel fuel, reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The installations can be used at an industrial facility, nuclear power plants and icebreakers to compensate for dips and surges in the power grid with a sharp change in load. Any nuclear reactors face such a problem: if the load changes dramatically, then emergencies may occur in the reactor," said Petr Bachurin, one of the authors of the development, a junior researcher at the Institute of Power Electronics of NSTU NETI.

According to him, the power storage systems are ready to be installed on nuclear icebreakers. "Our technology is already ready for integration, depending on the request, we can equip icebreakers with accumulation systems. In addition, our development is done entirely in Russia. Our algorithm has no analogues in the world," added Peter Bachurin.
