Electronic dosimeter and thermoluminescent dosimeter correlation study at Catawba Nuclear Station
Duke Energy's nuclear fleet is comprised of seven nuclear plants. The dosimetry program at every plant includes a comparison of the dose recorded by the TLDs and EPDs at the end of each quarter. EPD over-response is desirable to a degree because the over-response offers a higher dose estimate; however, too great of an over estimate obscures the actual dose a worker receives. An EPD/TLD correlation study was conducted to quantify and identify factors contributing to excess EPD over-response and offer recommendations to improve the EPD/TLD correlation. The EPD/TLD correlations at Catawba Nuclear ...
