The ANL Plant Dynamics Code (PDC) is the current state-of-the-art capability for one-dimensional system level transient analysis of supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO2) Brayton cycle power converters. Earlier validation of code models was carried out with data from testing of individual S-CO2 components such as a small-scale compact diffusion-bonded heat exchanger and compressor tests. The steady-state part of the PDC has been compared with experimental data from the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) small-scale S-CO2 Brayton cycle demonstration. In this work, predictions of the PDC code are assessed through comparison with SNL S-CO2 loop transient data. Code modifications were needed to properly simulate the actual experimental runs due to the unique features of the small-scale SNL loop. Overall, good agreement with the measured data is predicted by the PDC, although the code predictions could be improved in some cases. Future code improvements for comparisons with future SNL loop data are identified based upon the results.
