Abstract

In this work, we developed demand-driven deployment capabilities in Cyclus, d3ploy. User-controlled capabilities such as supply/capacity buffers, constraint deployment, prediction algorithms, and installed capacity deployment were introduced to give a user tools to minimize commodity undersupply in the simulation. We demonstrate d3ploy's capability to automatically deploy fuel cycle facilities to meet various types of user-defined power demands: constant, linearly increasing, and sinusoidal.
