Abstract

The work presents the approaches and software developed for multi-objective optimization of nuclear power structures: the modules for energy planning package MESSAGE intended for modeling purposes of developing nuclear power systems and multi-objective evaluation of its effectiveness and an integrated approach based on the method of system dynamics and parameter space investigation, allowing the problem of optimizing a nuclear power system structure in multi-objective formulation to be solved. Some results of implementation of these tools for multi-objective optimization of nuclear power structures are shown.
Keywords: multi-objective optimization; scenarios of nuclear power development; pareto-effective set; advanced nuclear systems multi-objective optimization; scenarios of nuclear power development; pareto-effective set; advanced nuclear systems
