Projects with CVŘ:

During years 2019-2021 we were successful in starting some projects with the department of material research in Center of Research Řež, which generates two patents where ÚTIA has a share:

  • PV 2021-549 Metoda měření deformace palivového souboru pomocí digitálního zpracování obrazu z videozáznamů
  • PV 2022-289 Zařízení k přesnému 3D měření rozměrů a opotřebení komponent jaderných elektráren

In 2022 we presented our solution for visual fuel inspection as invited talk at conference: EPRI - AI and Electric Power Summit (Enabling the Energy Transformation).

The cooperation continues with other projects.
