Abstract

This work investigates the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) for radiation dose prediction due to a nuclear power plant (NPP) accident with radioactive material release. The main objective is to avoid necessity of using complex time-consuming simulators during the emergency. Training, test and production data sets have been generated by realistic simulations on the precise atmospheric dispersion system used in CNAAA Brazilian NPP. Considering a hypothetical Lost of Coolant Accident (LOCA), several ANN architectures have been trained with a wide range of atmospheric conditions in order to predict spatial effective doses. As a result, a Backpropagation Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) with 5 layers demonstrated to achieve the best generalization, reaching a correlation factor of 0.990 for the validation dataset. On the other hand the GRNN reached a correlation factor slightly worse (0.986) but very faster.
