Application The Pebble Bed Micro Model (PBMM) is a closed three-shaft recuperative gas turbine power plant that was developed at North-West University in South-Africa to demonstrate the power conversion concept of the Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR). The PBMR is a new type of high-temperature gas-cooled nuclear power plant that is currently being developed in South-Africa.

The project involved the comparison of the results of the Systems CFD Code Flownex with the measured pressure increase over the start-up blower during the start-up of the Pebble Bed Micro Model. The complete system was designed with the aid of Flownex and construction was completed in 9 months.

The agreement between Flownex inline valve pressure increase and the measured results is excellent. The project not only demonstrated the PBMR’s power conversion concept but also demonstrated the accuracy of Flownex.
